The origins of number, 3RD Jean Piaget Conferences

On June 28 and 29 2018, the Archives Jean Piaget at the University of Geneva will organize a scientific event entitled Jean Piaget Conferences. The aim of these biannual conferences is to bring together the best specialists of a domain around a topic that is particularly relevant to Jean Piaget’s theory and developmental psychology.

The theme selected for the next Jean Piaget Conference is The origins of number. We bring together some of the leading experts in this domain in a two-day conference where each invited speakers is asked will give a one-hour lecture. Doctoral students, young postdoctoral fellows and senior researchers will also have the opportunity to present their work, either through oral presentations or posters.

The evening before the opening of the Conference, there will be an introductory event addressed to a more general audience, which includes a plenary lecture on the general theme of the conference, delivered by Brian Butterworth.

It is our pleasure to issue the call for submissions to the 3rdJean Piaget Conferences, The origins of number. We encourage submissions that approach this theme from a variety of perspectives.

We welcome oral presentations submissions and poster submissions.

Although the theme of the conference is about numerical cognition, the conference is open for researchers and students doing research on all aspects of developmental psychology, cognitive psychology, and neuroscience.
