Live from 30 Nov 2009 - Autism2009

Welcome to Autism2009, the fifth online world conference to be held within the AWARES conference centre. The conference is run by the Editor of Awares, Adam Feinstein, and hosted by Autism Cymru, Wales' National Charity for Autism. Yet again, an unprecedented list of the world's top autism authorities has agreed to take part and you will have a unique opportunity to put your questions directly to them online. In order to meet the full operational costs of running such a unique event, we are having to charge a small minimum entry fee of £5. This is payable when you register. We very much look forward to welcoming you online.

This conference opens on Monday, November 30, 2009, and runs for a week until December 7, 2009. Paper abstracts will be accessible from early November.
