EPIC2018 is the premier international gathering on ethnography in business.


How is evidence created, used, and abused? Research methods are proliferating, yet the connection between evidence and decisions seems more tenuous than ever. EPIC2018 will explore the richness of methods, tools, and approaches in contemporary ethnographic practice across disciplines. Together with data and computer scientists, we’ll address opportunities and challenges at the emerging intersection of data science and ethnography.
