Abstract submission is now closed. Abstract submitters may log in at any time to print a receipt for the abstract submission fee or to view a read-only copy of a submitted abstract.
SfN received over 16,000 abstract submissions in 2012.
Accepted abstracts are organized into scientific poster sessions, Theme H poster sessions, and nanosymposia. Those interested in presenting in a nanosymposium should visit the Abstract Topic Matching Forum on NeurOnLine to collaborate with other colleagues to form a nanosymposium proposal. You may then recommend your group for a nanosymposium during abstract submission.
Learn more about dynamic posters and indicate your interest in your abstract submission form to be considered for this presentation format. A limited number of abstracts will be selected for dynamic poster presentation.
Register for Neuroscience 2013 to Present Your Abstract
First authors are expected to register for Neuroscience 2013 and present their abstracts in a poster session or nanosymposium. Registration opens in July. If the first author cannot attend, presentation by a co-author is acceptable. If none of the authors on the abstract can present, email firstname.lastname@example.org immediately to either mark your abstract as "unable to attend" (abstract and author block will remain listed in the online Neuroscience Meeting Planner") or "withdrawn" (abstract and author block will be removed from the online Neuroscience Meeting Planner).
Theme H Poster Format
Each SfN member may submit or sponsor only one scientific abstract and one Theme H abstract (History, Teaching, Public Awareness, and Societal Impacts in Neuroscience). For those submitting a Theme H abstract, note that Theme H Posters will encompass three sessions on the poster floor: Saturday p.m., Sunday a.m., and Sunday p.m. Posters should remain on display for these three sessions for casual viewing and be removed at the end of the afternoon session on Sunday.
Advance promotion of general topics, speakers, or presentation times is permitted and encouraged.
Research data, results, lay summaries, and supplemental materials from abstracts or scientific presentations is embargoed until the conclusion of the presentation or press conference, whichever comes first.
