European Conference on Developmental Psychology (ECDP)

With great pleasure we invite researchers and practitioners with an interest towards developmental psychology to the next ECDP conference in Turku, Finland. The conference is organized by the INVEST Research Flagship at the University of Turku in collaboration with the European Association for Developmental Psychology.

The Scientific Committee is preparing an exciting program and distinguished speakers are invited to share their valuable knowledge and experience. The highlights of the social program include dinner in the historic Turku Castle, sauna event in the archipelago, and a steamship cruise. We encourage you to submit your abstract (deadline: January 31, 2023) in the formats of symposia, roundtable discussions, individual talks (grouped into thematic sessions), or poster presentations. The aim is to offer a chance to all participants to exchange research interests, ideas, and experience in developmental psychology, as well as the latest developments in the field.

Turku is a perfect location for the ECDP conference in 2023. We promise the participants an unforgettable event with good organization, scientific excellence and beautiful and safe surroundings!

World Anti-Bullying Forum (WABF)
October 25 – 27, 2023 in Raleigh, North Carolina

The World Anti-Bullying Forum is an international and multidisciplinary forum whose purpose is to broaden our understanding of bullying, harassment, discrimination, ostracism, and other forms of violence among and against children and youth. The forum is a setting for multidisciplinary dialogues, panels, and meetings aimed at improving our understanding of bullying in all settings where children spend time and the efforts to stop and prevent it. The World Anti-Bullying Forum invites perspectives from different disciplines and areas such as (but not limited to) developmental and social psychology, sociology, social anthropology, education, gender studies, media studies, social work, health sciences, public health, childhood studies, political science, philosophy, and criminology. The World Anti-Bullying Forum also provides a platform for researchers and practitioners to present and discuss bullying in relation to societal and educational issues such as equality and equity, social emotional learning, rights and responsibilities, school climate, inclusion, exclusion, identity-based discrimination, etc.

If research-based knowledge is shared among those who work with and for children, and those who influence children’s living conditions, we have a better chance of effective bullying prevention. Therefore, the World Anti-Bullying Forum is a place for dialogue among researchers, practitioners, stakeholders, and policy-makers.
