Abstract submissions now OPEN for LCICD 2017

Following a very successful 1st LCICD in 2016, our 2nd annual international conference on Infant and Early Child Development is now accepting abstract submissions for 2017.

Abstracts should be no more than 300 words (excluding references) with an additional page for figures and graphs. We invite abstract submissions from all areas of infant and early child development (age range: pre-natal – 4 years). Full details for submission can be found on the conference website http://wp.lancs.ac.uk/lcicd/.

This three-day conference in August 2017 will run from Wednesday morning until Friday afternoon (23-25 August) and will be preceded by an optional one-day Methods Workshop (22 August). The conference will focus on research in infant and early child development and reflect the breadth of methods used in this field (e.g., eye tracking and pupil dilation, EEG/ERP, fNIRS, computational modelling, physiological measures, fetal imaging). We are aiming to bring together scientists engaged in cutting edge research and PhD students who are starting their scientific career, as well as to provide an opportunity for training of PhD students and junior researchers.

This conference is being organised as part of a recently awarded £1 million grant from the Leverhulme Trust to establish a Doctoral Scholarship Programme in Interdisciplinary Research on Infant Development at Lancaster University. This scheme will provide a total of 22 PhD studentships over five years (with the second cohort just having started), together with associated activities.
