How to Submit

Abstract submissions to LCICD 2017 are now closed.

We invite abstract submissions relating to any aspect of infant and early child development including perceptual and cognitive development, early language development and social development. We will also consider abstracts reporting on earlier (fetal) development, or later (preschool) development. 

There are two types of submissions: oral presentation (20 minutes + 10 minutes time for questions) and poster presentation (max A0 with landscape orientation). There is also a dedicated poster session (Special Poster Session) for early-career researchers (Msc / PhD students) to showcase their research ideas which may or may not contain any preliminary data. 

Please submit abstracts (max 300 words) by 1st March 2017 8th March 2017 through EasyChair. Notification of abstract submissions will be on 31st March 2017.
