The 15th annual International Meeting for Autism Research (IMFAR) was recently held in Baltimore, Maryland, USA. As a young researcher and first-time attendee, the three-day conference offered a valuable opportunity to get up-to-date with the exciting new findings in autism research, and interact with autism researchers from a range of disciplines and across the globe. Keynote speakers and panel sessions showcased findings from a wide range of topic areas, including epidemiology, service delivery, behavioural and intellectual assessment, and interventions across the lifespan, while an impressive line-up of poster sessions spanned 20 topic areas.
