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!
