The Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee (IACC) will be having a Scientific Workshop on September 30th and October 1st to update the 2009 IACC Strategic Plan for ASD Research. This meeting will be held in Bethesda, MD, and more information can be found at http://iacc.hhs.gov/.
The IACC was established as a result of the Combating Autism Act of 2006, and its strategic plan includes identifying research gaps, advancing research and knowledge of ASD, and setting priorities of short-term and long-term objectives.
The workshop panels will have pre-workshop conference calls for the public to hear (but listeners will not be able to comment); see this website for details:
Among the experts speaking will be Geraldine Dawson, Deborah Fein and Catherine Lord.
The workshop will also be videocast (here’s the link: http://videocast.nih.gov/ ).
Tune in to see what’s next in the strategic plan!
