While COVID-19 continues spreading across the world at this time, as vaccine distribution is ramping up, the International Society for Developmental Psychobiology is keeping the health and safety of our members as our top priority. The ISDP 2021 Hybrid Meeting: 54th Annual Meeting of the International Society for Developmental Psychobiology (ISDP) will be held November 10-12, 2021, at the Swissôtel Chicago, for all those who are ready and able to TRAVEL and will include integrated virtual presentations, online discussions and on-demand access to engage participants across the world. Building on the success of ISDP 2020 Virtual Meeting, we hope that this first ever Hybrid Meeting will allow the ISDP community to stay connected, share research, and further collaborations to advance the field of Developmental Psychobiology.

Testimonials from ISDP 2020 Virtual Meeting...
The live broadcast of pre-corded presentations and live discussions after were excellent.
Virtual poster session space was fantastic!
I've attended 4 virtual conferences this year and ISDP was the best!
Gathertown was a really great way to network and meet people!!
Really great execution of a virtual conference!
I liked the meeting room sessions, it felt like I was "walking into" a talk and not so zoom like.
