Sixteenth International Congress of Qualitative Inquiry

20-23 May 2020


Dear ICQI Members, 2020 Annual Meeting Participants, Colleagues, and Friends:

To ensure the safety of our international community, we regret to inform you that the 16th International Congress of Qualitative Inquiry (QI2020) is cancelled due to the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). Committee reports, including dissertation, outstanding book, and lifetime achievement awards will be posted.

Those who have registered will be receiving a full refund.

In solidarity and with sad hearts we send this notification to our international community. We will miss you, and we hope to see you in 2021.

ADDENDUM: Since cancelling the 2020 Congress, it has come to our attention that people have been organizing virtual meetings on their own. We are happy to see people finding ways to continue important conversations that happen at the Congress, and we encourage others to do the same. However, please note that ICQI does not have any formal relationships with these groups at the moment (including, but not limited to a new organization known as VCQI, which is not related to nor organized by ICQI).

The 17th International Congress of Qualitative Inquiry is tentatively scheduled for 19-22 May 2021. The theme is Qualitative Inquiry and Global Collaboration.
