Our Next Conference

About the Conference

On May 30, 2016 , now celebrated as the National Day of the Gifted, the First International Conference on Giftedness will be held. For the first time in the history at Latin America, the issue of students with higher intelligence diagnosis, attention and education will be treated. This model of conference which is held in European or Asian nations has been previously organized in Latin America.

The event will integrate a wide current experience in intellectual giftedness with research of international and national speakers (from Harvard University, Connecticut University, National Center for Research on Gifted Education, University of Chemnitz in Germany, Autonomous University of Puebla, Technological Institute of Monterrey, Mexican Space Agency, Mexican Federation of Intellectual Giftedness, Talent Attention Center, among others). This conference will also host the first exhibition on Mexican soil of the results of the select Intensive Intellectual Enhancement Program now developed as one of the worldwide most successful models for intellectual giftedness. It should be noted the presence of a scientific poster exhibition by children with superior intelligence during this Congress and a special presentation of the student group assigned to the Mexican Center for Gifted.

With an audience larger than 850 people, this annual conference will inaugurate a new phase of development in the community of gifted in Mexico and Latin America to present the practical scientific advances in theory and superior intelligence that national and international institutions have made in recent years in favor of the most valuable human capital of a nation : their children with intellectual giftedness.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes , as part of a tradition established in 1830 by General Carl von Clausewitz , the community of gifted in Mexico awards annually without interruption a number of medals for children and youth who have completed a year, which is a prime number, in status active within any of the institutions supported by the gifted community in Mexico. These medals are only delivered in a solemn ceremony during the National Day of the Gifted every May 30. Individuals who miss such delivery may only receive his medal until May 30 next year (if they remain with active status).

Lic . Dafne Almazán at her 14 years will deliver a keynote address where she will address various topics of relevance in intellectual giftedness , including her case as a girl who at young age has a degree in Psychology and is currently studying the degree of Master of Education.

Also a select group of CMAS ( Mexican Center for Gifted ) will perform a series of presentations on the Intensive Intellectual Enhancement Program results.

More information will be given later.

The divisions of Mexican Alliance Group for Giftedness will perform the corresponding publication of a call to its members for participation in the contest of scientific posters in order to select the best exhibitors who will present their project at the conference in the poster session.

Due to the high demand for places for this congress, the numbered tickets were distributed to the organizing institutions (including CEDAT).
The process to obtain tickets is currently organized by them.

This conference is an official event of the Community of Gifted in Mexico , therefore it is disposed that its official musical emblem should be sung at the beginning of any ceremony performed by this group. This congress will be the first occasion where the anthem of the gifted will be heard in an international academic event.

Any media interested in more information about the conference, access to the event or interviews is asked to contact CEDAT's Public Relations Department which is in charge of coordinating these activities.
