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.

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 – excluding references) by March 20th 29th, 2020 through EasyChair

PLEASE NOTE: A single .pdf page containing title, author(s) and affiliation(s), and abstract MUST be uploaded to EasyChair. Graphs and/or figures can be included, but MUST fit on the same page. Please use the following TEMPLATE to create your .pdf document for submission.
