The first International Conference on Quantitative Ethnography will bring together scholars seeking to meaningfully analyze and interpret large amounts of rich qualitative data. Quantitative ethnographic approaches have been used in a variety of fields, including learning analytics, history, and systems engineering, to understand human behavior and interaction. The goal of ICQE is to foster a community of researchers interested in sharing ideas, resources, and inspiration. Whether you are a seasoned quantitative ethnographer or simply want to learn more about a powerful approach to making meaning from big data, we hope you will join us for this first-of-its-kind conference!
