The theme of the 2022 conference is “Children’s rights and opportunities in an unequal world: research, policy and intervention”. We will address topics related to research, policy and program initiatives and interventions with children and adolescents. Submissions that are culturally or ethically relevant to a global context are particularly welcome.
ISCI 2022 will receive original research from an international perspective. Academics working in the research of children’s indicators in any country and from any theoretical background are invited to participate in the event. Thus, the target audience includes professionals, academic or practical, from the Health, Human and Social Sciences area, institutions and associations that are engaged in themes related to children and adolescents’ indicators, including professionals from psychology, social service, public policies, administration, law, among others.
We are inviting abstracts that examine the following themes and subthemes:
Authors must identify two (2) themes and up to three (3) subthemes relevant to the abstract submission (see themes and subthemes listed above). All the abstracts must be submitted in Word file format through the online subscription system within the deadline (31st October, 2021). The abstracts must not include references and must contain between 350–500 words in the following format:
As part of the online subscription, a 50-75 words biography must be provided for each co-author. The biographies must be written in the 3rd person.
Authors will be asked to identify their preferred presentation format when submitting the abstract online. However, the Conference Scientific Committee may propose an alternative presentation format for proposed oral presentations/ poster abstracts.
All abstracts will be subject to a blind peer review by 2 members of the Conference Scientific Committee. To accommodate as many presenters as possible, the organizers have limited the authors’ presentation to two (2) abstract submissions as first author and presenter. This limit applies to oral presentations, panel contributions and posters. However, the limit does not apply in the case of co-authorship. Presenters may also volunteer to chair panels and moderate oral presentations. By submitting an abstract the author(s) are agreeing to the print and electronic publication of the abstract.
Gramado is a city marked by German, Italian and Portuguese colonisations, whose cultural features are presented in the hospitality, beauty, quality of life and development that transformed the town built around 1875 into the welcoming city of nowadays. It is located 120 km from the capital of the State of Rio Grande do Sul, Porto Alegre.
With temperate climate, typical architecture and cultural expressions, Gramado has tourism and scientific and cultural events as the basis of its economy. Markedly from the 50s, the local industry created cycles of wealth in the areas of footwear, furniture, knitwear and clothing, in addition to the delicious homemade chocolate that, accompanied by gastronomy and hotel services, delight visitors and make their people proud.
