About the Congress

Researchers, clinicians, educators, government agency representatives, and others with expertise in psychology, psychiatry, neuroscience, pediatrics, communications, social work, public health, education, and more will come together to explore how digital media use impacts the social, psychological, cognitive, behavioral, and physical development of children.

In conjunction with the scientific program, the Congress will feature networking opportunities, hands-on demonstrations, and a Tools and Methodologies Exposition.


Tools and Methodologies Exposition

The aim of the 2023 Tools and Methodologies Exposition is to showcase new and emerging technologies that permit objective measurement of children’s and family’s media use (e.g., measures of time, content, or context of media use) and/or relevant outcomes (e.g., physical, psychophysiological, psychosocial, psychological, or neurological responses). The event will include exhibits, demonstrations, breakout groups, and panel discussions.

Featured Topics Include

  • Technology and Relationships 
  • Media and Anxiety, Depression, and Suicidality
  • Digital Addictions
  • Physical Health and Screens
  • Technology, Learning, and Education
  • Emerging Technologies and Artificial Intelligence
  • Early Digital Media Use
  • The Role of Parents and Parenting
  • Marketing and Advertising to Children
  • Relationships Between Online and Offline Behaviors and Beliefs 
  • Pornography, Sexting, and Cyberflashing

And other emerging issues in the study of child development and digital media!

In conjunction with the Congress we will also host a Tools and Methodologies Exposition, featuring exhibits, demonstrations, and panel discussions about the newest ways to measure digital media use and its outcomes.
