‘...promotes research on human development all over the world...’
ISSBD - 2014 Biennial Meeting

ISSBD 2022

Dear Colleagues and Students,

It is with pleasure and excitement that we announce the dates for the 26th Biennial Meeting of the International Society for the Study of Behavioural Development (ISSBD), which will take place in person on the Island of Rhodes in Greece, June 19-23, 2022.

The 2020 ISSBD conference, which was planned to take place at the same site, had to be cancelled due to the pandemic.

We hope that you all navigated safely this challenge and that you are healthy and well.

We will accept applications, without peer review, from colleagues and students who were planning to attend ISSBD 2020, provided that the work has not already been presented internationally or published in an international journal.

We will also open a new call for abstracts addressed to colleagues and students who hadn't planned to attend ISSBD 2020. These applications will go through the normal peer review process.

You can find more information about the conference on our new website at

The Conference will promote and facilitate the presentation of research on, among other topics:

  1. human development throughout the life-span,
  2. basic and applied research,
  3. developmental risks and resilience,
  4. biological determinants of development,
  5. methodological issues,
  6. topics of global concern that affect developing individuals’ lives, such as climate change, globalization, migration, catastrophic events, including war and terrorism, new and old technologies.

We hope you will join us for an exciting conference and for celebrating together our freedom from the pandemic at this beautiful and historic site with the endless beaches, wonderful weather, its medieval old town and its picturesque villages.

With best wishes,
Frosso Motti-Stefanidi
Chair of the Conference
