Meeting (WTAS)

The 2nd Digital Scientific Meeting for Autism Spectrum Conditions (WTAS) will take place online from March, 10th to March, 11th.

The conference topic is “Early Detection | False Detection | Non-detection”. As at past conferences, the WTAS will offer you a diverse program with numerous short talks, an extensive scientific poster exhibition and a large selection of practice-relevant workshops.

We are particularly looking forward to the keynote address by Prof Dr Tony Charman (London, United Kingdom) entitled: “Learning about autism from babies: From understanding developmental mechanisms to clinical implications”.

In addition, we will award the 6th Kanner-Asperger Medal to Prof. Dr. Fritz Poustka (Frankfurt am Main, Germany) for his life’s work.

Furthermore, the 10th Weber-Bosch-Prize will be awarded at the 14th WTAS, with which the Scientific Society Autism Spectrum (WGAS) honors young scientists in German-speaking countries.
