Date:  16-18 September 2016

Venue:  Edinburgh

We are delighted to invite you to the 11th Autism-Europe International Congress, organised by The National Autistic Society.

Autism-Europe’s international congresses are dedicated to sharing advances in practical and scientific knowledge about autism to as wide an audience as possible, including researchers, professionals, parents and self-advocates.

Register now!

The theme of the 2016 Congress is Happy, healthy and empowered.  The Congress will focus on the most recent developments across the field of autism, including causes, genetics, diagnosis, early intervention, treatments, education, support, employment, rights and policies, and many more. It will also cover the evolution of knowledge, rights and services for autistic people, as well as providing insight into future developments in knowledge and technologies for autistic people that may soon become a part of everyday life.

The Call for Papers to submit abstracts for presentation at the Congress has now closed. The deadline for submissions was 31 January 2016. For more information about the submission process and guidelines, see the Call for Papers page.

We look forward to seeing you at the Congress on 16-18 September 2016 in the beautiful and historic city of Edinburgh, where we will share the creative and innovative work being done across Europe and worldwide and work together to ensure that people with autism get to live the life they choose.

With kindest regards,

Carol Povey

Director of the Centre for Autism at The National Autistic Society
