The edition of 2017 was pointed by the participation of researchers, professors, students and technicians in several areas, as well as institutions which daily works are with childhood and adolescence issues. The organising committee, in cooperation with eventQualia’s team, selected an heterogeneous pool of key-speakers whose work has the ability to make the participation on the conference as fulfilling as possible.The choice of the plenary sessions and, mainly, the composition of the round-tables, was also thought to encourage discussion, inviting the active participation of the audience and allowing a broad share of knowledge and know-how.
We believe that not only this first edition, but all the future editions to come, represent an important contribution for the multidisciplinary approach of the Childhood and Adolescence related themes.
