The twenty-first century opened us up to a new reality. New smart, digital technologies raised communication opportunities to new heights. One does not even need a computer to participate from the eastern part of the world in a dialogue with someone who is in the west part of the globe. A smartphone is enough. Such worldwide famous programs as MS Teams and Zoom serve many communication needs, including gesture and mimics, as one can both hear and see our interlocutors.

Popular and political discourse is invested in globalization. As we nearly got used to the term ‘ globalized world’, this world starts turning back again to national ideals. Integration or disintegration – that is the question? Covid time is not over. What has it brought to us? Deeper knowledge of how to communicate from a distance or depression and desocialization? Maybe both. One thing is clear. We cannot change strange and cruel circumstances at once, but we can help people and peoples get a new understanding and knowledge of how to survive and make life better through constructive dialogue.

Migration processes captured the globe as well. People of different nations hardly understand each other. Communication barriers based on cultural peculiarities can be brought down. It might be time to work out a migration linguistic policy; a time to ‘break the communication ice’ among the nations. An interdisciplinary approach to the problem of understanding, friendship and cooperation through constructive dialogue is one more goal to achieve.

All the above-mentioned challenges will be the aim of this conference.

The conference theme includes but is not limited to the following sub-themes:

  • Dialogue: retrospective and prospective studies
  • Linguistic dialogue in a modern globalized world
  • Dialogue studies in the field of digital linguistics
  • Technical determination of digitalization: monologue or dialogue?
  • Modern migration: dialogue of cultures or clash of civilizations?
  • East and west, south and north dialogue in the era of smart technologies
  • Artificial intelligence and dialogue
  • Social and psychological aspects of communication and dialogue in modern
  • Digital and smart society
  • Media Ecology and Dialogic Implications

The language of the Conference is English.

The format of the conference is hybrid.
