The Cognitive Development Center at CEU is pleased to announce the 11th annual BCCCD meeting in Budapest, Hungary (BCCCD21, January 7-9, 2021).

Despite the unpredictable development of the Covid-19 pandemic, we are committed to BCCCD21 taking place in January, either as usual, in Budapest, or online (or both). We recently reached out to our community to assess your preferences with regards to this conference. We are grateful for the enthusiastic responses we received and that almost everyone urged us not the cancel the conference. We took your feedback seriously and decided to make a final call on whether the conference will be entirely or partly virtual in early September. At the same time, we shifted the deadline for all submissions to a later date, October 8. This will leave you time to decide whether you want to submit to the conference given its final format.

We welcome symposium, paper, and poster submissions reporting studies from all fields of cognitive development. Previous BCCCD meetings featured a wide range of topics, such as communication, pragmatics, social cognition, conceptual development, language acquisition, numeracy, object cognition, perceptual learning, inductive learning, memory, executive function, metacognition, the cognitive bases of culture, and comparative cognition.

We encourage theoretical and methodological contributions and welcome proposals for pre-conference workshops.

While CEU has been facing the challenge of relocating most of its operations to another city, we would like to reassure all prospective participants that should BCCCD21 be held as an in-person conference, it will take place in the Budapest campus of CEU..
