The National Academy of Sciences, along with the Institute of Digital Media and Child Development, are launching a global convening of researchers, pediatricians, child psychologists, and neuroscientists who are investigating the impact of technology and media use on childrens' brains and behavior.

White papers will be published in an upcoming issue of Pediatrics, and select primary papers and reviews will be published in upcoming issues of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
