7th Conference on Emerging Adulthood

Thanks to all of you for a wonderful 7th Conference on Emerging Adulthood in Miami! We had 448 attendees - a new record - and many of you have told us that the posters, panel discussions, TED/PechaKucha talks, and discussion sessions were outstanding. We are extremely pleased with the conference and believe it was the best one that we have held so far.

We are now assembling photos, videos, and other materials from the conference events and will post them on the SSEA website as soon as we can. We will also be sending a post-conference survey to all attendees in the next couple of days.

This conference could not have happened without all of you. We very much appreciate your attendance and participation, and we look forward to seeing you again at our next conference in 2017!
