Scientific programme

ALL ABSTRACTS AND THE FINAL PROGRAMME ARE AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD ON THE HOME PAGE UNDER “DOWNLOADS”. FOR ECOLOGICAL REASONS, WE WILL NOT PRINT A BOOK OF ABSTRACTS, SO ALL INFORMATION IS ONLINE.

The theme of the XVth Biennial Conference of the European Association for Research on Adolescence will be:

¿Qué será, será? Adolescent Research into the Future: Visions and Challenges

We invite contributions from a broad array of topics within research on adolescence. Such topics should be of interest to psychologists, but also to those working in disciplines such as Sociology, Psychiatry, Biology, Education, Anthropology, Law, Social Work, Sports and Medicine, and we particularly encourage inter-disciplinary studies.
