The 2018 Worldwide Conference on Qualitative Announces Call for Submissions

Melanie Bernstein,

QRCA and AQR are delighted to present the 9th Biennial Conference on Qualitative Research. We will meet in the fabulous city of Valencia, Spain, from Wednesday, May 16 through Friday, May 18, 2018, at the Westin Hotel Valencia.

The conference theme is “Stay Curious.” Curiosity is the attribute that unites qualitative researchers the world over…curiosity about people and their lives, about society at large and individual communities, but also a hunger for the latest new thinking, whether it be from academia, the business world, or even popular culture.

Curiosity is what gets us out of bed in the morning and carries us through those long working hours. But we need to invest in it, to continually fuel it, in order to keep our edge. This conference is about coming together to inspire and stimulate…to ensure we “Stay Curious.”

The joint conference committee welcomes your proposals, which should be submitted online, on or before November 2, 2017. All are welcome, and you may submit more than one proposal.

Book Your Room Now for #QRCA2018

Casey Bernard and the Conference Committee,

The annual conference is upon us with early-bird registration open and the speakers selected. You won’t want to miss this year! No matter whether you are a seasoned professional or are new to QRCA, there will be opportunities for all levels of QRCs to “Elevate and Cultivate” your practice.

One of the most exciting elements of the conference is the smaller, more intimate location. We will not have other big meetings to compete with for our space. You won’t have to haul it across a huge convention center hotel to make it from your room to the meetings, which means more time networking with vendors, connecting with members, and learning how you can expand your business. For you members in the colder parts of the world, you’ll appreciate that Phoenix’s average temperature in January is 67 degrees. Break out those flip flops!

You’ll want to stay at the conference hotel for the beautiful views, walking trail, and ease of getting to and from our sessions. Book your room with a special rate for QRCA conference attendees by going to the conference website.
