EPIC 2009 Artefacts:
Submission Deadline May 3, 2009

EPIC 2009
When: August 30-September 2, 2009
Where: Hotel InterContinental Chicago, 505 N. Michigan Ave. Chicago, IL 60611
What: The theme for EPIC2009 is Taking Care of Business: Having an impact and staying relevant as ethnographers in today's economic climate

We are excited to invite you to submit your work for the artefacts category for this years EPIC conference. The artefacts category seeks to provide participants with an opportunity to present work in a forum that facilitates open discussion and enables direct interaction with conference attendees. A dedicated session will occur in the morning of the second day of the conference to present the artefacts.

Artefacts can be anything from design sketchbooks, to reformed organizational processes, to ads you've produced, to products you've made, to short films, to conceptual objects, etc. We encourage submissions that are thought provoking and visually engaging, and which cover exploratory/speculative work, smaller projects, unusual representations of ethnographic work, and so on. The form of the presented materials is open. In keeping with the category title artefacts though, we encourage submissions based on some material instantiation that can be exhibited at the conference. Our hope is that it will be the 'thinginess' of the artefacts that will, in part, prompt interaction with and between conference attendees.

Submissions should include a single page describing or illustrating the proposed submission (the one page inclusive of any and all figures and references, where appropriate). This page should convey to reviewers what the artefact being submitted is and how it is hoped to provoke discussion. The page will also be included in the published conference proceedings.

Also included in the submissions should be a paragraph and image (no more that 150 words) that can be displayed on the conference website.

Please send these submission materials by May 3, 2009 to:

In the email "Subject" please write "EPIC2009 Artefacts". Additionally, please include your email address and other contact details.

Notification of acceptance will happen by May 17, 2009. Accepted submissions will have their 150 word descriptions posted on the EPIC2009 website.
Final submission materials will be needed for the proceedings by July 26, 2009.
The artefact itself should be transported to Chicago for the conference.

Wendy March, Alex Taylor and Scott Ternovits
