Meeting Description:

The School of Psychology & Clinical Language Sciences, at the University of Reading, is delighted to host the joint Annual Conference of the British Psychological Society’s Developmental and Cognitive Sections in September 2013. Come and join us for lively debate and informative discussion at the frontiers of cognition and lifespan development. Our innovative programme encourages new presentation formats, and includes pre- and post-conference workshops from experts in relevant areas. We are delighted to announce that we have four excellent keynote speakers who are international experts in their fields.

We invite you to join us on the attractive University of Reading campus, recently voted as one of the top three ‘best green spaces in the UK’ (November 2012). Accommodation is in a new building with en-suite bedrooms and shared kitchen areas, a short stroll from the Conference arena in the Palmer Building.

CogDev 2013 has already attracted many of the leaders in cognitive and developmental psychology from the UK and Europe. The theme of the conference is the relationship between cognition and development: but there will be plenty of room for any field related to cognitive or developmental psychology.

The conference is based at the delightful University of Reading campus, which offers top-grade facilities for the academic programme, together with newly-built and comfortable en-suite accommodation. Everything is a short leafy stroll from the conference venue. The venue itself is clustered under one roof and promises to facilitate an excellent and stimulating conference.
