Dear colleagues,

It is our great pleasure to invite you to participate in the 3rd Biennial Meeting of the EARLI Special Interest Group 16 "Metacognition", which will be held from 8th to 10th of May, 2008 in the city of Ioannina, Greece. The first meeting was held in 2004 in Amsterdam and the second in 2006 in Cambridge. Both meetings were highly successful in bringing together SIG members as well as researchers from all over the world. We aspire to continue this tradition.

The aim of this meeting is to provide a forum for the presentation and exchange of research findings and expertise, relating to the processes, the ecological validity and the applications of metacognition. The relations of metacognition with learning and thinking from early childhood to old age in various settings will be highlighted. The meeting will include symposia, individual papers, and posters. Dr Beate Sodian, Ludwig-Maximilians-University of Munich, Germany, and Dr Marcel V. J. Veenman, University of Leiden and University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands, have been invited as keynote speakers to the meeting.

The scope of the previous meetings has typically been very broad, and we hope to draw together once again a wide range of researchers and experts in the field of Metacognition. We would, therefore, welcome submissions covering all areas of Metacognition research, including:

The facets of metacognition
Metacognitive experiences
Metacognitive knowledge
Metacognitive skills
The measurement of metacognition
Development of metacognition
The cognitive underpinnings of metacognition
Theory of mind
Epistemological thinking
Self-regulation and metacognition
Executive processes and metacognition
Metacognition and learning
Social processes in metacognition

The Organizing Committee will work tirelessly towards an excellent conference programme. We hope that Ioannina's atmosphere and lakeside location will make it a welcoming venue for all participants and that the meeting will be an enjoyable and enriching experience in scientific, personal and social respects.

The Presidents of the
Organizing Committee
