This year’s meeting venue will be the Uniclub Bonn http://www.uniclub-bonn.de/. The focus of the 6th WTAS will be “Autism: Diagnosis or trait?”. There will be a pro and contra debate on the subject with PD Dr. Tanja Michel (Rostock) and Prof. Dr. Kai Vogeley (Köln) taking stands for the different positions.
There will be also talks and workshops on neuropsychology, imaging, diagnostic assessments and intervention, amongst other subjects. We cordially invite you to participate with your scientific work. The deadline for the submission of abstracts is November 1st, 2012.
At the 6th WTAS, we are looking forward to the WGAS` second awarding of the Kanner-Asperger-Medal, with which outstanding achievements of national and international researchers working in the autism field are recognized.
