We are pleased to announce that the International Society for the Study of Behavioural Development (ISSBD) will hold its 22nd biennial meeting in Edmonton, Alberta, July 8-12, 2012.  On behalf of the members of the Local Organizing Committee and the National Advisory Committee, we cordially invite you to western Canada to join us for this exciting meeting!

ISSBD is the largest international organization of researchers studying human development across the lifespan. It has over 1100 members from 60 countries and welcomes researchers interested in human development from any scientific discipline. Established in 1969, ISSBD has held biennial meetings on five continents, including Europe, North America, South America, Asia, and Australia – and in July, 2010, ISSBD is meeting in Africa for the first time. We hope to see you and learn more about your research at the 2012 meeting in Edmonton.
