In July of 2012, the 14th World Congress of the International Association for the Scientific Study of Disabilities (IASSID) will be held in Halifax, Nova Scotia.  The 2012 Halifax World Congress will mark only the second time that this conference has been held in Canada, and will be an important opportunity for Canadians both to share with and learn from delegates from other countries.

The 2012 IASSID World Congress, whose theme is “A World of Potential,” will bring approximately 1,000 delegates from around the world to Halifax.  The conference will consist of more than 240 concurrent sessions in which presenters will share their recent findings, and will include 14 plenary sessions about major advances in the biological, behavioural, and social sciences related to intellectual disabilities.
