About the Conference

The 137th AAIDD Annual Meeting, Race to Catch the Future, will provide researchers, clinicians, practitioners, educators, policymakers, local, state and federal agencies, and advocates with cutting edge research, effective practices, and valuable information on important policy initiatives. The conference will have thought-provoking plenary sessions concerning emerging issues in the field of intellectual and developmental disabilities and ways in which professionals can prepare themselves and their organizations to thrive in a field that is in transition. Additionally, the conference will feature panel presentations, poster presentations, taskforce and special interest group meetings, and multiple networking opportunities. Select pre- and post-conference workshops will address relevant topics of interest in greater detail.

Race to Catch the Future

AAIDD has been the leading interdisciplinary professional organization in intellectual and developmental disabilities for more than a century. Our leaders and members have been at the cutting edge of ground breaking research, practices, and policies in the field of intellectual and developmental disabilities. This annual meeting will continue that long-established tradition. Our plenary sessions will focus on emerging issues and challenges facing professionals from multiple disciplines whose work is centered on improving the lives of persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The conference will create a forum for sharing expertise in the areas of research, practice, and policy relevant to promoting improved outcomes and quality of life for persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

We invite you to submit your quality proposal to share your ideas and findings with your colleagues at the 2013 AAIDD Annual Meeting in Pittsburgh, PA, June 3-6, 2013.

Students and Early Career Professionals

The AAIDD Annual Meeting provides a unique opportunity to become involved in the field, develop leadership skills, and network. We encourage students and early career professionals to come present and take the opportunity of this meeting to promote their work. A limited number of student and early career professional scholarships will be available on a competitive basis—to be considered for a scholarship, a student/early career professional must be the first author on a paper or poster proposal and indicate that they would like to be considered for a scholarship on the proposal submission form.
