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. Attendance at the biennial meetings averages 6,500.

The overarching theme for the 2017 Biennial Meeting is: Developmental Science and Society. Supporting this theme are four areas of emphasis, although submissions on any topic relevant to child development were welcomed.
