This year’s conference will be June 25-27, 2018 at the Crystal Gateway Marriot in Arlington, Virginia.

The goals of ACF’s National Research Conference on Early Childhood 2018 (NRCEC 2018) are to:

  • identify and disseminate research relevant to young children (birth to 8 years) and their families, and
  • encourage collaboration among researchers, practitioners, and policymakers to build upon the evidence base for policy and practice.

The 2018 Conference will present the latest research surrounding child care, Head Start, Early Head Start, home visiting, child welfare, special education, pre-kindergarten, early elementary, and other early childhood programs. Further, the conference welcomes submissions from all relevant fields including education, child development, political science, psychology, sociology, public and allied health, pediatrics, psychiatry, nursing, social work, dentistry, anthropology, law, and economics. Populations of interest include low-income families, as well as populations that may require specialized services, including but not limited to dual language learners, children affected by trauma or homelessness, children from immigrant/migrant families, children in foster care, and children with disabilities.
