Abstracts Submission

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 (prenatal – 4 years old). We will also consider abstracts reporting on later (preschool) development with relevance to understanding infant development.

We invite submissions for oral presentation (20–minute presentation + 10 minutes time for questions) and poster presentation (size A0; format can be either landscape or portrait). We also invite early-career ‘no-results-yet’ poster submissions to showcase research ideas which may or may not contain any preliminary data. Poster sessions have dedicated slots and do not run in parallel with talk sessions. As we have limited space for talks we will offer some submissions for talk to instead present a poster.

Please submit your abstracts to the Oxford Abstracts submissions portal (max 400 words, including references) by Monday 1st May 2023 (extended deadline).


If you have any queries, please contact us on lcicd.enquiries@lancaster.ac.uk.

Financial Support: Discounted registration rates of £75 are available for early career researchers (MSc/PhD students, postdoctoral researchers) who would otherwise find it difficult to attend the conference. These will be determined based on quality of abstract submission and personal circumstances. If you wish to be considered for one of our fee waivers, please fill out this form by Monday 1st May 2023 (extended deadline).
