Advance your professional development by planning now to attend the 2017 SRCD Biennial Meeting in Austin! Aside from the invited and submitted program, there are numerous formal and informal opportunities for networking and learning about the latest developments in the field. The biennial meetings provide an opportunity for child development professionals and other researchers to connect and exchange information and ideas.

The Governing Council and Program Committee of the Society for Research in Child Development (SRCD), along with the 2017 Program Co-Chairs, Nicholas Allen (University of Oregon) and Ariel Kalil (University of Chicago), invite you to the 2017 Biennial Meeting to be held April 6 - 8, 2017 at the Austin Convention Center and the Hilton Austin Hotel. Preconference events will be held on Wednesday, April 5, 2017.

SRCD’s commitment to interdisciplinary research, diversity, and an international perspective is strongly supported through its Biennial Meetings. Empirical, theoretical, historical, methodological, policy, application and translational submissions from investigators around the globe in all disciplines related to the field of child development are welcomed. The Society also encourages submissions from students, both graduate and undergraduate.
