About ECV2020

The Early Childhood Voices Conference (ECV2020) provides a platform to share research about innovative methods, theories and partnerships with children, families and practitioners that supports social justice during early childhood or within the early childhood sector.

ECV2020 is organised by the Charles Sturt University Early Childhood Research Group, and is an opportunity to present research in a virtual online space. 2020 has been a challenging year, and COVID-19 has altered the way in which we do many things, including research. Many conferences have been cancelled or postponed. ECV2020 provides researchers with the opportunity to present work that they been unable to present in other forums, research that they have been working on during the year, and/or work that responds to challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We invite researchers and post-graduate students to submit abstracts to share their work on innovations to improve the lives of children, families and practitioners during early childhood (generally birth-8 years) or within the early childhood sector. Please interpret this guidance broadly. Papers employing qualitative and/or quantitative methods, reviews (e.g., scoping and systematic reviews) and scholarly theoretical papers are welcomed. All abstracts will be peer reviewed by the ECV2020 Scientific Committee and authors of accepted abstracts will be invited to submit online presentations.

ECV2020 will be held entirely online and asynchronously. There is no registration fee and no fees to present or view the presentations. The conference will be held from 16th to 20th November 2020. Presentations will be pre-recorded, and will remain online. 

We look forward to receiving your abstracts by Monday 14th September 2020.
