INSAR May 2021 hybrid meeting in Boston and online

The upcoming meeting, INSAR 2021, will be the 20th anniversary of the first annual meeting of INSAR. To mark the significance of the 20th Anniversary of INSAR and to support the dissemination and global progress of autism research, especially in light of the pandemic, the INSAR Board of Directors along with the Annual Meeting Chairs, have decided that INSAR 2021 will be a hybrid conference with both in-person and web-based streaming of keynotes and panels from Boston.

The INSAR Annual Meeting brings together autism researchers and stakeholders each year to exchange and disseminate new scientific progress among autism scientists and their trainees from around the world. We anticipate the hybrid format will allow for an unprecedented level of global participation at the conference.

In addition to planning for the in-person conference in Boston, Massachusetts, USA, there will also be a virtual option for the conference content. A portion of the conference will be live streamed, and all keynote, panel and oral sessions will be recorded and available on demand following the event. In-person and virtual registrations will be offered for this event. As with past Annual Meetings, registration will be required for all presenters.

There will be expanded options for ePosters, options to pre-record oral presentations, and attend live virtual content if unable to travel to Boston in May 2021. Exhibitors will have both in-person and virtual exhibit opportunities.

INSAR is committed to providing the annual meeting content for 2021 to continue the global sharing of research. We are excited to see how our global submissions and attendance will expand with the addition of virtual options.

Abstract Submissions will be opening on October 15, 2020 and close on November 16, 2020. There will be an option to indicate that you will be planning to present remotely, by submitting a pre-recorded presentation.

Please note: Recordings of presentations will be required in advance. There will not be any collection of presentations onsite. Presenters may be asked to join virtually during the session for live Q&A.

INSAR Members will be getting more information next week about volunteering to be a Reviewer.
