The theme of the Eighth Conference of the Japanese Society of Child Science was "Supporting Child Raising and Learning." Focusing on children in the disaster-stricken areas of the Great East Japan Earthquake and methods of long-term assistance for those supporting children in the areas of child care, public health, and social welfare, the discussion reflected the interdisciplinary nature of the organization.

On Day 1, after the symposium on "Children's Growth from the Viewpoint of Pediatric Medicine," Hideo Tamai, former Commissioner, Agency for Cultural Affairs, gave a lecture on "Thinking about Society Today and Children's Developmental Problems. On Day 2, two symposia were held.
