Schedule & Location

#QIS2016 will be held on Friday, February 17th, 2017, at the Institute for Contemporary Art at 118 S. 36th Street in Philadelphia, PA. Panels, talks, workshops, and collaborative times will be held from 9am until 5pm, with conversations continuing into the evening.

All are welcome to join or continue their own conversations!
