WELCOME ADDRESS

We are pleased to announce the organization of the 14th Biennial Conference of the European Association for Research on Adolescence, which will take place on September 3-6, in Cesme, near Izmir, Turkey. The conference will cover main topics of state of the art adolescent research and will offer perspectives from various areas of psychology, such as developmental, social and clinical and counselling psychology and brain research, as well as from other disciplines such as education, sociology and adolescent psychiatry.

Researchers and practitioners from different disciplines across Europe and all over the world, who study adolescence, will have ample opportunity to exchange ideas, discuss research findings and raise new questions for research. The conference program will include keynote lectures, invited symposia, a round table discussion, preconference workshops, symposia, oral presentations and poster sessions..

This invitation is extended to scholars, researchers, professionals, psychologists, counselors, teachers, students and generally individuals who are interested in the study of adolescence.

Çeşme is famous with its pleasant climate, wonderful beaches and windsurfing capacity. Conference dates are perfect dates for a summer holiday. We encourage you for considering Çeşme for a holiday opportunity as well.
