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.

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

PLEASE NOTE: We will open the submission portal in the next few days

Please submit your abstracts to the EasyChair submissions portal (max 300 words – excluding references) by Friday 21st of April 2023. Click here for guidance on the EasyChair submission process.

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

Financial Support: Discounted rates 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 the following form by Friday 21st of April 2023.
