Center for Applied Developmental Science
11th International Institute on Developmental Science
In 1998 a group of developmentalists from Sweden, Finland, and the United States started a series of annual workshops for doctoral training and joint research on developmental science. This International Institute on Developmental Science (IIDS) was first organized by the Department of Psychology at Stockholm University, led by David Magnusson and Lars R. Bergman, and the Center for Developmental Science at Chapel Hill, NC, led by Robert Cairns. Over time, new departments and universities joined the group which today comprises researchers from the universities of Stockholm (Sweden), Örebro (Sweden), Uppsala (Sweden), Jyväskylä (Finland), North Carolina (USA), Jena (Germany), and the Pennsylvania State University (USA). The primary aim of the institutes is to provide participants with first-hand information and advice concerning their own scholarly work. The institutes have been very successful and attracted top students and young post docs as participants as well as leading researchers in many different fields as faculty.
This year and for the first time the IIDS will be hosted by the Center for Applied Developmental Science at the Friedrich Schiller University of Jena, led by Rainer K. Silbereisen. It will take place at the Dornburg Castles from October, 3 to October, 5. Funding for this event is provided by the Center for Applied Developmental Science, the Friedrich Schiller University of Jena, and the Jacobs Foundation.
During the three-day meeting, major issues at the core of a developmental science perspective will be discussed. The focus of this year’s Institute is on psychosocial transitions during adolescence and adulthood. Specific research interests refer to normative and non-normative transitions with a dual emphasis on adaptive as well as maladaptive developmental outcomes. The program will comprise lectures by invited faculty, plenum discussions as well as PhD students’ and post docs’ poster presentations, and individual consultations with experts. The program will also entail a visit to the city of Weimar and it’s cultural attractions.
