This conference brings together academics, educators, non-governmental organisations and charities, legislators and politicians, lawyers and individuals involved in the criminal justice system, birth and adoptive families alongside individuals who themselves have FASD; shared learning will help promote the understanding of this disorder in the UK, Europe and internationally. The conference will cover a wide range of topics including prevention, social determinants, diagnosis, epigenetics, psychological profiles, behavioural management, education, prevalence, family support, criminal justice system difficulties, social care needs, practical management, pharmacology and other cutting-edge research that may be submitted or invited. This is not an exhaustive list and will grow depending on submitted abstracts.

The Royal Holloway University near London has a long history as a seat of learning in the UK. As the UK's most international university, the University combines world-class research with a global perspective, yet at the same time, the campus has an intimate human scale. This provides an excellent context in which to host this outstanding international research and education conference in 2016.

We cordially invite you to join us at this exceptional conference.
