European Conference on Developmental Psychology (ECDP) 2023

European Conference on Developmental Psychology (ECDP) 2023 will take place on 28 August – 1 September, 2023 in Turku, Finland.

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 walking tours around the city, dinner in the historic Turku Castle, and sauna event in the archipelago. 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!
