We are excited to bring you the Call for Papers for EPIC 2010:

Where: Midtown Conference Center, Tokyo, Japan
Papers: Abstract submission deadline March 14, 2010

Artifacts: Proposal submission deadline May 2, 2010

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 Do / The way of ethnography

Do captures the sense of individual mastery that is achieved only with
the help of a
community and its rich heritage. Do implies a body of knowledge and
tradition with an
ethic and an aesthetic.

Do is the “path” we have travelled and also the way ahead of us.

'Do' is one's sense of value reflected in a number of spiritual,
martial, or aesthetic
disciplines which has been very influential in every aspect of
Japanese cultures and
societies. 'Bushido,' as portrayed in the movie 'Last Samurai,' is one
of the most famous
examples of the Japanese way of thinking. Also, Do can be seen in
martial arts (e.g.
Judo, Aikido and Karate-do), and in aesthetics, such as Sado (the way
of tea), Kado (the
way of flowers) and Shodo (the way of writing).

EPIC 2010 will feature a wide range of ethnographic applications in
industry, different
“ways” forward. Ethnographic praxis in industry is global in scope,
but adapted to
different geographies (Asia, Latin America, Middle East, Europe, North
America),
different contexts (academia, business, NGO’s, government), different
industries
(technology, healthcare, consumer goods, advertising) and different
purposes (product
innovation, strategy, interorganizational collaboration,
communications, policy making).
Join Epic 2010 and help define Ethnography’s Do. Show others “the
way” of doing
ethnography in your context, in your industry, in your geography, for
your goals.

We are looking to feature different aspects of Ethnography Do:

Normativity: Quality standards, best practices, proficiency/mastering
the discipline,
benchmarks, rigorous process/outcomes

Specialization: Inclusion of new disciplines to enrich the practice, new
contexts/applications of ethnographic praxis, new ways to do
ethnography (online
ethnography, etc.)

Transmissivity: Taking to new heights, exploring new territories,
opening doors,
spreading the value of ethnography, communicating results in new ways.

Authoritativeness: Tradition, recognition, acknowledgment /appraisal
of the past, and
solid foundations, deep reflection for inner strength and energy.

Universality: Optimism, human values, path towards the future,
balancing science +
art, growth, innovation to be prepared for what’s next

As we enter a new decade we want to focus on defining the practice from within,
exploring different applications of ethnography in industry and
defining as a community
what the future will hold for us. Come join us at EPIC2010 in Tokyo,
one of the most
innovative, but also one of the most traditional cities in the world -
the perfect setting
for exploring, learning, discussing, reflecting and defining:
道 Do / The way of ethnography.

In the attached document you will find details about how to make
submissions for the
Papers, Workshops and Artifacts and Pecha Kucha sessions.
