Bringing together so many of the world’s foremost thought leaders from various fields on the effects of screen media on the health and development of youth is unique and incredibly impactful. The resulting breadth and depth of scientific discourse was enormously informative and inspiring. The ability to converse and network among experts of such varied knowledge and perspectives was truly remarkable.

…I learned so much about topics that I do not study. Practice is most likely to be effective when it is built on a firm foundation of science. Most often progress is made when people can collaborate and combine their different skills and talents to solve a common problem. This conference made significant progress toward that goal.

I wanted to express my appreciation again for the very engaging and informative conference. I enjoyed the discussions and the opportunity to hear updates from the field as well as balancing viewpoints. Look forward to learning more in the future.

This Congress was absolutely invigorating! The breadth and depth of science, recommendations, and policy implications were rich. I learned more about digital media in a few days than I could in a year of reading. Anyone caring for, studying, or invested in child development in the digital age needs to attend. I can’t wait for the next meeting!

I enjoyed very much the diversity and broadness of the meeting and the participants. It was quite an unexpected experience to see, hear, and discuss with so many different people and approaches. I am leaving quite enriched with the experience. Needless to say, the organization and facilities were great! Congratulations to Pam and the team.

The Congress was among the best professional meetings I have attended. The cross-disciplinary discussion, carefully curated set of presentations, breadth of relevant topics covered, new methods and tools introduced, multi-modal presentation structure, and participant group all made for a terrifically valuable and engaging few days. The Congress was also impeccably planned! I appreciated the inclusion of researchers at different stages of their careers, and the deliberate addition of non-researcher voices. It was a privilege to be included.
