The International Society for Autism Research (INSAR) is a scientific and professional organization devoted to advancing knowledge about autism spectrum disorders. INSAR was formed in 2001 and is governed by an elected, volunteer Board of Directors who oversee all functions of the Society. Various committees assist the Board in carrying out the mission of the Society.
INSAR offers annual membership in three categories of membership. Membership benefits and application process details can be found at Membership. The Society holds an annual scientific meeting - the International Meeting for Autism Research (IMFAR). Information about past and future IMFAR meetings can be found at the IMFAR Annual Meeting. In additional to the annual meetings, INSAR has contracted with John Wiley and Sons, Inc, to publish the Society's research journal, Autism Research. An online subscription to our journal is just one benefit of INSAR membership.
INSAR is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization.
