To support researchers all over the world in coming together, we are hosting our first virtual conference, “Qualitative Research in a Changing World” on September 23, 2020.

We want our first conference to be accessible for everyone. So it runs for 24 hours, with live sessions across all time zones. To ensure you can catch all of our esteemed presenters, sessions will be made available for attendees for 90 days afterwards. The design of the NVivo Virtual Conference, according to Dr. Stacy Penna, NVivo Community Director, is to provide an opportunity for researchers to connect with the global research community.

“The NVivo Virtual Conference allows researchers to connect, learn, and share ideas in an online and interactive venue.”

We decided to organize the conference virtually, because many in-person conferences were not proceeding. Not only can attendees gain valuable learnings and insights from our expert keynote speakers, but our session presentations and poster hall showcase innovative qualitative research topics to generate discussion with peers.
