The 2016 Southeastern Symposium committee is seeking proposals that reflect advances in human development and family science scholarship. The theme for this year’s conference is “40 Years of the Southeastern Symposium: Fostering Ideas, Scholarship, and Collaboration”, celebrating the conference’s 40th anniversary.
The conference committee seeks proposals to promote research, theory, practices, and policies that focus on implications for children and families across the lifespan.
Criteria for proposals:
- Proposals can be based on qualitative, quantitative, or mixed method research, or can focus on literature reviews, analyses of theoretical or pedagogical approaches from which the scholarship was conducted
- Research for posters and oral presentations should be largely completed by the conference.
- Proposals for roundtable discussions may be in the development or analysis stages for the conference.
