In response to great demand for smaller, more focused topical meetings during the biennial meeting off-years, SRCD began presenting special topic meetings in 2012. Special topic meetings are much smaller (around 300 attendees each) and more focused than the biennial meeting. They typically run from Thursday morning through Saturday noon and are timed so as to not conflict with major societies (e.g., Society for Research on Adolescence, International Society for Infant Studies) that hold even-year meetings. They are structured to maximize opportunities for interactions among attendees and early career scholars.
