Highlights of the 2023 Biennial Meeting include:

  • The broad map of developmental science, practice, and policy with the aim of representing top areas of interest for the entire Society,
  • A diverse program (in terms of topics, populations studied, national/international representation, interdisciplinarity, and speakers’ backgrounds),
  • Coordination with caucuses, committees, consortia and SRCD staff to solicit recommendations for the invited program,
  • Collaboration with local institutions and individuals in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area to engage in bidirectional dialogue about child development,
  • SRCD Town Hall meeting,
  • An increased emphasis on scholar-activism,
  • Flash-talk formats, and
  • Solicited content submissions to attract proposals on topics of high priority.
