OCT 11–15: Learning & Networking
OCT 18–21: Main Program

Now in its 17th year, EPIC is a treasured annual gathering that brings together people around the world—in all disciplines, roles, and industries—who use ethnography to drive innovation and change that is anchored in deep understandings of society, culture, and people in their everyday lives. Our conference is a warm, inclusive event that combines practical learning and expertise, meaningful networking, and the inspiration and debate that we need to grow and evolve in a changing world. EPIC is a nonprofit organization powered by members and volunteers.

We are no longer accepting submissions for Papers, Case Studies, and PechaKucha. You can read the original call for proposals and details about the review process here.

Please contact us if you have any questions—and get ready to register in July! conference@epicpeople.org
