We welcome abstract submissions for both oral presentations and data sessions using EMCA methods (ethnomethodology and conversation analysis) to explore conversations in policing and criminal justice contexts. This could include (but is not limited to) work on emergency and non-emergency police calls, patrol footage, victim/suspect interviews, courtroom interactions, parole meetings etc.  


Please include a title, followed by a brief statement of the problem or issue, a description of your methods, the major findings, the conclusions reached, and three keywords (max. 300 words). You can add the text directly into the text box or upload it. Please also indicate if you would be presenting in-person or online. You can do this by adding [in-person] or [online] anywhere in the abstract text.

In the submission portal, please add the author and the name/s of the presenter/s on the right hand side.
