AMPRA-5 postponed to 2022:
Temporarily Closing the Call for Papers for AMPRA-5
In light of the continuing Covid-19 situation and in order to keep everyone safe and healthy, the AMPRA-5 organizing committee and the AMPRA officers have decided to postpone the 5th International Conference of the American Pragmatics Association for another year.
Scholars who have already had their abstracts accepted for presentation will be contacted separately to update you on how we will handle this situation.
In November 2021 we will re-issue the Call for Papers for AMPRA-5, to be held October 7 to 9, 2022 at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada.

AMPRA aims to be a forum for researchers who are looking for new tools and methods in the investigation of human language and communication, in order to thereby better understand the role of pragmatic competence in language acquisition and development as well as in the process of communication.
AMPRA achieves its goals by:
- Stimulating activities in the scientific and academic communities;
- Facilitating the coordination of scientific events (conferences, exhibitions, workshops, summer institutes, etc.);
- Encouraging the dissemination of knowledge and information (through summer institutes, regular newsletters and journals, websites, etc);
