CDS is now accepting applications for Pre-Conference Workshops.
Deadline for applications is March 29, 2019
Pre-conference Workshops are different from symposia and oral scientific presentations, in that they provide a teaching opportunity, allowing participants to acquire or extend their skills, learn about new techniques or technologies, or gain in-depth knowledge in a particular topic related to cognitive development research.
Two options are available for Pre-Conference Workshops:
Half Day Workshops
3 hours in length, and will be scheduled either in the morning (9:00AM – 12:00PM), or afternoon (1:00PM – 4:00PM) prior to the official opening of the Congress on Thursday, October 17th, 2019 at 6:00PM.
Full Day Workshops
A maximum of eight hours in length, including a break for lunch and must be completed by 5:30PM.
Please note: Pre-conference Workshop organizers must be a current member of CDS, and will be required to be registered for the 2019 Biennial CDS Conference.
**Workshop organizers are responsible for all costs associated with the pre-conference workshops, but can look into charging participants to recoup some of the cost.** More information on costs and budgetary planning can be found here.
