The start of this new decade marks an exciting new departure for EPIC, as we move beyond North America and Europe for the first time to Tokyo.

EPIC is the premier international forum bringing together artists, computer scientists, designers, social scientists, marketers, academics and advertisers – and others! – to discuss recent developments and future advances around ethnographic praxis.

We seek original, high quality and engaging papers, workshops, artifacts and presentations concerning ethnographic praxis in industry, including case studies on research investigations, methodological & theoretical advances, discussions on outcomes, standards, and new applications of ethnography around this year’s conference theme: 道 Dō / The way of ethnography.

  1. It seems like I am bit late for the EPIC 2010 conference, but was wondering if you could shed some light on the 2011 conference?

    Thank You,
