Who should attend?

Attendance at the conference is recommended to all persons interested in Growing Up in Australia: The Longitudinal study of Australian Children (LSAC), Footprints in Time: The Longitudinal Study of Indigenous Children (LSIC) and in longitudinal survey research more generally.

The use of LSAC and LSIC data in research and policy formation, and the research potential of both studies, will be the main focus over the two days.

Keynote speakers will include some of Australia's leading researchers in areas relating to child development and family wellbeing.  The papers to be presented will cover a broad array of family, social and Indigenous issues such as family functioning; work-life balance; home to school transitions; parenting and childcare; child and parental health; and education.
