International Society for the Study of Behavioural Development

23nd Biennial Meeting

July 8 - 12, 2014

Preconference workshops, Saturday, July 7

Shaw Conference Centre, ECNU, Shanghai, China

ISSBD is the largest international organization of researchers studying human development across the lifespan. It has over 1100 members from 60 countries and welcomes researchers interested in human development from any scientific discipline. Established in 1969, ISSBD has held biennial meetings in Europe, North America, South America, Asia, Australia and Africa. The 2012 meeting will be the first time that ISSBD convenes in Western Canada.

ISSBD 2014 provides a rare opportunity to bring together leading and emerging researchers of human development and to foster scholarly exchange on a diversity of developmental topics from infancy to late life. We invite proposals from students and scholars conducting developmental research in any part of the world. Research on any and all segments of the lifespan is welcome.

Registration Requirement

Authors are encouraged to register early for the conference (early-bird registration ends February 28, 2014). At least one author for each accepted paper or poster must register for the conference by the standard registration deadline of June 1, 2014. Posters/papers for which no authors are registered will not appear in the program, which goes to press June 1.

Proposal Guidelines

All proposals must be in English and submitted electronically through the submissions portal accessible from our website.

The following elements should be included in an abstract: research question and significance, theoretical background, methods, results and interpretation of findings.

Format

Three types of presentation may be proposed:

• Symposium

• Individual Poster

• Poster Workshop

 

Symposium

A Symposium consists of three or four presentations (including an optional presentation by a discussant). Symposia with contributions from at least two different countries will be preferred. The chair of a symposium is expected to recruit a group of participant authors, and to submit an abstract outlining the topic, summarizing key issues, and integrating the findings of the participants’ papers. Submissions must include:

• name, affiliation, country, phone and email address for chair

• name, affiliation, country, and email address for co-chair and discussant (if any)

• name, affiliation, country, and email address for each author on an individual presentation (limit of 10 authors)

• Early Career Scholar status of any participant in the symposium; an Early Career Scholar is someone who has received a graduate research degree (e.g., a PhD) within the past seven years (2005 or later) or who is in a graduate program leading to such a degree

• title (maximum 150 characters including spaces) and integrative abstract (maximum 250 words) for symposium

• title (maximum 150 characters including spaces) and abstract for each presentation (maximum 400 words; tables and figures cannot be attached)

• first and second choice for review panel

• period of life covered by papers in the symposium

• confirmation that the chair (or co-chair, if applicable), discussant (if applicable) and at least one author on each presentation will register by June 1, 2014 for the conference and attend if the symposium is accepted; papers for which no authors are registered will not appear in the program, which goes to press June 1

 

Individual Poster

Posters will be the preferred format for free-standing research presentations. Posters are recommended when the contribution is strongly data-based and therefore particularly suited for graphic or visual presentation. Individual posters will be presented with other thematically relevant posters.

 

• name, affiliation, country and email address for each author on the poster (limit of 10 authors)

• Early Career Scholar status of any participant in the symposium; an Early Career Scholar is someone who has received a graduate research degree (e.g., a PhD) within the past seven years (2005 or later) or who is in a graduate program leading to such a degree

• title (maximum 150 characters including spaces) and abstract (maximum 400 words; tables and figures cannot be attached)

• first and second choice for review panel

• period of life covered by the poster

• confirmation that at least one author on the poster will register by June 1, 2012 for the conference and attend if the poster is accepted; posters for which no authors are registered will not appear in the program, which goes to press June 1

 

Poster Workshop

A Poster Workshop consists of 4 - 6 posters organized around a central topic. A Poster Workshop should be organized by one chair or two co-chairs and may include a discussant. Poster workshops with contributions from at least two different countries will be preferred. Submissions must include:

• name, affiliation, country, phone and email address for chair

• name, affiliation, country and email address for co-chair (if any) and discussant

• name, affiliation, country and email address for each author on an individual poster (limit of 10 authors)

• Early Career Scholar status of any participant in the symposium; an Early Career Scholar is someone who has received a graduate research degree (e.g., a PhD) within the past seven years (2005 or later) or who is in a graduate program leading to such a degree

• title (maximum 150 characters including spaces) and integrative abstract (maximum 250 words) for workshop

• title (maximum 150 characters including spaces) and abstract for each poster (maximum 400 words; tables and figures cannot be attached)

• first and second choice for review panel

• period of life covered by the posters

• confirmation that the chair (or co-chair, if applicable), discussant, and at least one author on each poster will register by June 1, 2012 for the conference and attend if the workshop is accepted; posters for which no authors are registered will not appear in the program, which goes to press June 1

 

Part of the scheduled time for a poster workshop is used to view posters and speak with presenters individually. The rest of the time follows the usual symposium format with a discussion of the findings.

Multiple Submissions

Individuals are permitted to serve as first author for a maximum of two presentations (symposium paper, individual poster, or poster in a poster workshop). Serving as chair, co-chair, and discussant does not count toward this limit.

Early Career Scholars and Travel Grant Applications

Early Career Scholars, participants who have received a graduate research degree (e.g., PhD) within the past seven years (2005 or later) or who are in a graduate program leading to such a degree, may be eligible to apply for travel grants to join the preconference workshops and attend the conference. Further information will be posted on our website (www.issbd2012.com) as it becomes available.
