On June 20 and 21 2016, the "Archives Jean Piaget" at the University of Geneva will organize a scientific event entitled "Jean Piaget Conferences". The aim of these biannual conferences is to bring together the best specialists of a domain around a topic that is particularly relevant to Jean Piaget's theory and developmental psychology.The theme selected for the next "Jean Piaget Conference" is infant development. This particular theme was motivated by the recent acquisition of the “carnets” (notebooks) written by Jean and his wife Valentine and relating the early development of their three children, the very same “carnets” that eventually laid the ground for the trilogy of books on sensori-motor development and on birth of intelligence in children ("The origins of intelligence", "The child's construction of reality" and "Play, dreams and imitation in childhood"). These invaluable documents have remained in Piaget's estate in Pinchat until recently, when they were bequeathed by the family to the Archives along with all Piaget's manuscripts. In parallel with the conference, an exhibition of the “carnets” will be held to celebrate this important acquisition. More importantly, we plan to bring together most of the leader experts in early development in a two-day conference where each participant is asked to give a one-hour lecture.

The "Jean Piaget Conferences" are open to all scholars, researchers and students who are interested in developmental psychology and in cognitive psychology.
