XXIII ICIS 2022: Developmental Cascades

Join us in Ottawa, Canada

July 7 – 10, 2022

Congress Overview

The 2022 Congress will be held in Ottawa, Canada. Ottawa is the picturesque capital city of Canada and sits at the confluence of 3 major rivers. We will meet at the Westin Ottawa, which is located in the heart of the city and a short walk to museums, historical and cultural landmarks, national attractions, and restaurants offering a range of cuisines.

The invited program will center on the theme of Developmental Cascades. In recent years, researchers have advanced an understanding of intersections among behaviors, abilities and processes at multiple levels of analysis (biological, neural, behavioral, environmental, cultural), across different domains (motor, language, social, emotional, etc.), and across time (from prenatal development through early childhood). Such Developmental Cascades continue to elucidate previously unsuspected causal links and co-dependencies among seemingly disparate processes. By highlighting current research on Developmental Cascades, we aim to spark new ideas, invigorate researchers in their own work, and advance fresh perspectives on the science and reach of infancy.
