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. SEPTEMBER 20 - SEPTEMBER 23, 2023 | WASHINGTON D.C.

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

About the 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.
