The Society for the Study of Human Development (SSHD) invites submissions for its 8th Biennial Meeting. SSHD is an International U.S. based multidisciplinary society with a central mission of taking an integrative, interdisciplinary approach to theories, research, and applications of Developmental Science across the life-span/life-course.
This year’s conference theme is Rethinking Developmental Science across the Life-span/Life-course: Theory, Methods, and Applications.
Deadline for submissions (Posters/Symposia) is March 1, 2013.

December 14 - 18, 2013, New Orleans, LA
June 1 - July 14, 2013,
Applications are due February 8, 2013, for this 120 years old course in Woods Hole, that continues to teach the most cutting edge approaches for studying metazoan development. Each year 24 outstanding students from around the world are selected to participate in this 6-week summer course (June 1- July 14, 2013). Most students are provided with financial assistance from the course, including 3 Society for Developmental Biology scholarships. The course directors (Alejandro Sanchez Alvarado, Stowers Institute for Medical Research and Richard Behringer, Universith of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center) strongly encourage outstanding graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to apply.

June 10 - 21, 2013, Hobart and William Smith Colleges
Session I: June 10 – June 14; Session II: June 17 – June 21
The C.R.E.A.T.E. (Consider, Read, Elucidate the hypotheses, Analyze and interpret the data, and Think of the next Experiment) strategy is a new teaching approach that seeks to transform the learning environment of an undergraduate course to model the creativity, complexity, and excitement of the scientific process. The methodology achieves this goal through the directed reading of primary literature within a field.
Two (identical) workshops will be held in June of 2013 at Hobart and William Smith Colleges, located in Geneva, New York. Each workshop will run Monday through Thursday, 8AM – 5PM; Friday 8 AM – 12PM). We invite applications from science faculty at two and four year institutions; postdoctoral fellows are welcome to apply if teaching in the academic year following the workshop. All expenses, except travel, will be covered by our NSF grant. Further details can be found at http://www.teachcreate.org and the application link is https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/CREATEWorkshopApplication. Deadline for the application is February 15, 2013.
June 25 - 29, 2013, Darling Marine Center, University of Maine
This workshop is designed for college and university faculty members, especially post-docs and graduate students about to begin teaching developmental biology. It provides basic hands-on experience with some organisms commonly studied in teaching laboratories. These include sea urchins and sand dollars, planaria, Drosophila, chick embryos, Spirostomum, Hydra, Lumbriculus, and flowering plants. Techniques will range from classical microsurgical techniques to fluorescence microscopy and applications of reporter gene technology. For further information contact Dr. Leland Johnson by phone at (605) 988-9724 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or Dr. Eric Cole at (507)786-3395 or email@example.com.
