Symposium: Small Is Beautiful {Again}

Date: 14th, 15th and 16th of April 2021


Location: Virtual Symposium


Hosted by:


Single-Case Experimental Design (SCED) research has exponentially increased in recent years. Clinicians and researchers alike are benefiting from SCED’s flexibility and potential for innovative and robust findings. The result of such staggering interest has culminated in the current symposium, which strives to bring together experts and novices in this growing field of research. We aim to continue expanding awareness, knowledge, and expertise of this increasingly prominent research methodology.

This second international fully online N=1 symposium "Small is Beautiful {Again}" is a joint venture between KU Leuven (Belgium) and Karolinska Institutet (Sweden), and takes place 14, 15, and 16 April 2021.
