INSAR 2020 Annual Meeting

INSAR Cancellation Information

The INSAR Board is committed to providing some online content planned for the INSAR 2020 Annual Meeting to aid in advancement of quality autism research.

We recognize the need for students, early career researchers and others to not only share their work but to also cite a presentation or publication.  With these goals in mind, we are proceeding with plans to publish an Abstract Book online (PDF file), providing all presenters (poster, oral and panel) with an opportunity to submit an ePoster and hosting an online searchable portal for all submitted content.

In addition, INSAR will be hosting one or more Keynote webinar talks on June 3, 2020. More details to come soon – please check the INSAR website!

ARCAP Conference 2020 call for abstracts

The inaugural Aspect Research Centre for Autism Practice (ARCAP) Conference addresses the gap between science and practice by highlighting the latest innovative research in autism practice – research that is co-produced with autistic people and focused on identifying the best possible ways to support people on the autism spectrum and their families and carers to realise their goals and aspirations.

The program of invited speakers spans the areas of education, interventions, inclusive practices and independent living. We are now seeking speakers in these areas to share 10-minute lightning talks that are:

  • Original research that has or has the potential to have, significant impact on autism practice
  • Examples of innovative programs for autistic people that have an evidence base.

Please read the submission guidelines to learn more.
