The IMFAR Scientific Program Committee invites abstract submissions for review in all disciplines relevant to autism research for presentation at the 2013 IMFAR meeting in Donostia / San Sebastián, Spain being held May 2-4 2013. Further submission details are listed on the abstract submitter home page (under Steps and Instructions subheading). You must login to myINSAR first to access the abstract submitter.
Relevant topics include but are not limited to: etiology, risk factors, epidemiology, neuroimaging, treatment, cognition, behavior, language, communication, diagnosis, phenotype, genetics, cell and animal models, education, neurology, psychiatry, psychology, neuropathology, immunology, environment, medical conditions. IMFAR is a scientific meeting and only presentations based on empirical data will be accepted. Individual abstracts should report on the results of a single study. The program committee will select late breaking abstracts for oral presentation.
The rapid growth of the International Society for Autism Research (INSAR) has led to policies that ensure effective communication with the scientific and autism communities through media organizations. Information submitted to IMFAR as an abstract for oral or poster presentation is embargoed until after the presentation. The program committee will select abstracts for inclusion in a press book and INSAR will arrange for information release and press conferences during the meeting. Press policies may be viewed on the INSAR website.
The research presented at the meeting must be substantively identical to that described in the abstract, although the addition of data collected subsequently is allowed. Authors are required to declare all conflicts of interest when making oral or poster presentations.
