Today I received this notice about a conference to be held in February in Istanbul.  It sounds like a great opportunity to think globablly about the ways computing has evolved in qualitative research.  
Ankara University Sociology Department, Turkey and Sociology Department of Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana, Iztapalapa, México invite you to participate in the Seminar “Qualitative Computing: Diverse Worlds and Research Practices” to be held in Istanbul, February 24-26, 2011.  The Seminar aims to bring users from the North and South, from the East and the West and from the centers and the peripheries. This is an excellent occasion for CAQDAS users from all disciplines to share their experiences with qualitative software. 
“Qualitative Computing: Diverse Worlds and Research Practices” focuses on how research practices from diverse worlds have fostering qualitative computing. Such research practices has to be analyzed from methodological perspectives and the epistemological roots of each national way of practicing qualitative research must to be discussed as well. Thirty years of CAQDAS influence into the social sciences methodologies are not a simple issue and this Seminar is a great chance to discuss about the diversity of such influence.
