The Society for Research in Child Development (SRCD) is an international, multidisciplinary, nonprofit professional association whose goal is to promote the understanding of child development through research and dissemination. Members conduct theoretical studies, basic and applied research, and policy analyses to understand and enhance child development. Through its biennial meetings - which draw attendees from 53 countries throughout the world - and publishing efforts, SRCD strives to meet the goal of understanding child development through research while serving as a network and forum for its members and attendees. Members and attendees include professionals and graduate students in psychology, human development, family studies, education, public policy, sociology, social work, psychiatry, pediatrics, and public health.

New for 2017 - University Information Table
For the first time at the Biennial Meeting, SRCD is offering university departments, programs, and consortiums the opportunity to display information to scholars interested in furthering their career in developmental science. Standard six foot tables will be located in the University Information Center portion of the Exhibit Hall. Purchasers of the table can choose to have a representative available during Exhibit Hall hours to field questions.
As research in human development expands, the need for coordination and integration among the disciplines grows. The Society is constantly working to facilitate such coordination and integration and to assist in the dissemination of research findings. The Society welcomes the increasing interest in child development research and seeks members who share this interest.
