Dear Colleagues,


It is with great honor we invite you to Viña del Mar, Chile to the 8th ISPCAN Latin American International Conference on Child Abuse and Neglect. Many years have gone by since we hosted an event of this size.

The NGO PAICABI (Corporación de Promoción y Apoyo a la Infancia) is organizing this conference, together with SENAME (National Service for the Protection of Children), Para la Confianza Foundation and UNICEF.

The conference is focused on "Building a world without violence for children and teenagers”. Abstracts are being accepted on the subtopics of:

  • Legislative progress regarding child abuse
  • Child abuse intervention protocols
  • Forensic techniques in child abuse
  • Prosecution of crimes and the value of evidence in sexual violence against children
  • New technologies and their impact in violence against children and teenagers
  • Youngsters that abuse other children
  • Children and teenagers sexual exploitation
  • Prevention of violence against children in schools
  • Family and community intervention in violence against children
  • The impact of domestic violence in children
  • Early childhood abuse

Conference participants will have the opportunity to acquire up-to-date knowledge in issues related to research, detention, prevention and intervention. They will also have the chance to share national and international experiences and to participate in discussions and workshops related to the protection of children and teenagers from different forms of violence.


We invite you to submit abstracts for presentation in Spanish, English or Portuguese. The presentation program will run streams in each of these languages. After a blind peer review, the abstracts will be selected by the Scientific Committee, chaired by Dr. María Ignacia Arruabarrena (Spain) and Soledad Larraín, Master's Degree (Chile).


To encourage participation from all Latin American countries, there will be simultaneous interpretation (translation) from and to Spanish, English, and Portuguese, in the keynote and plenary sessions of the conference.


We also want to point out that Viña del Mar is a city that offers interesting travel and cultural attractions, with vast beaches, shopping, parks and entertainment venues. This "Garden City” is an important tourist destination in Chile. Strolling by the sea and getting to know the city’s natural beauty will make this an unforgettable visit.


Additionally, from Viña del Mar it is possible to go to Valparaíso, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with a fascinating history and architecture admired worldwide. This port city has inspired thousands of artists and poets. Among them we can find the Nobel Prize for Literature Pablo Neruda, whose house is currently a museum visited by tourist from all over the world.


So, we hope to meet you and welcome you to this beautiful Chilean city, where we will share an attractive interdisciplinary scientific program, together with the charm of a beautiful location.


Sincerely yours,


Iván Zamora
Executive Director
