Speech Title: A Conversation Analysis on Student-interaction in a Simulated Telephone Conversation¡¡
Abstract:
In this paper, the researcher underscored the various features during the conversation process. Using Harvey Sacks¡¯ Conversation Framework, the study further aimed to record, transcribe, and analyze the language used by the students in a simulated telephone conversation. Using conversation analysis, the paper highlighted how the linguistic communication was shaped by the conversational turn-taking system, transition-relevance places, and minimal responses. That is, to identify the utterances containing the functions and whether there are any devices used to give face to the interlocutor, identify the components of conversations and how the conversations of each speaker differ from one another. Furthermore, the researcher intends to give a vivid picture on how speakers knew when a current turn was about to end, and how did successive speakers coordinate their conversational efforts so that the talk flowed smoothly. The findings of the study revealed that there were a number of backchannel signals employed by the students during the simulated telephone conversation activity.

Speech Title: Risk Management of Antifragile for E-Business
Abstract:
The internet represents a growing and huge market and the development of e-commerce is an efficient business model which enables new relationship between consumers and suppliers. In order to send goods or products to customer fast and safely, strong support from efficient logistics system is necessary. The logistics process is complicated and has a lot of risks. Risk management is regarded as the important issue in supply chain management, and the antifragile is the new concept of risk analysis. If managers understand the most antifragile parts in all business, they could take actions and know how to allocate resources to avoid risks happening. The objective of this study is to develop an evaluation model and discuss the risk of logistic delivery system via the Fuzzy Cognitive Map and Sensitivity Model. From the survey, we can establish an evaluation model to analyze and describe the antifragile, vulnerability and resilience of the delivery system using different kind of research methods. The results obtained in this study can be used to help the manager formulate strategies and reduce the risks proactively as well.
