Abstract Sessioning

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. Find others to collaborate with then submit your abstract as a group.

First/presenting authors of submitted abstracts will receive confirmation of their abstract's status in late-June. Specific presentation times and AV request forms will be sent in late-July. Communications regarding abstracts will be sent to first/presenting authors only. Presenters will be able to look up their presentation information in the online Neuroscience Meeting Planner, coming in mid-August.


Dynamic Posters

Learn more about dynamic posters and indicate your interest in this format in the "Special Requests" section of your abstract submission. Ninety abstracts will be selected for dynamic poster presentation. The dynamic poster experiment for 2014 will include 10 presentations per half day, for a total of 90 presentations.


Meeting Registration Opens in July - Authors Must Register to Attend

The abstract handling fee ($105) does not include registration to the annual meeting.  First/presenting authors are expected to register for Neuroscience 2014 and present their abstracts.  If the first/presenting author cannot attend, presentation by a co-author is acceptable.  Only the authors attending the meeting need to register. 


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 who submit a Theme H abstract, note that Theme H Posters will encompass three half-days on the poster floor: Saturday p.m., Sunday a.m., and Sunday p.m. Posters should remain on display for these three half-days for casual viewing and be removed by Sunday, November 16, at 5 p.m.


Embargo Policy

Information and data included in abstracts presented at the SfN annual meeting are embargoed until the conclusion of the presentation or SfN press conference. Coverage of an abstract, poster, lay summary, data, or supplemental material, is strictly prohibited until the embargo is lifted.

Promotion of general topics, speakers, or presentation times is permitted and encouraged within the stated guidelines. Refer to SfN's Communications Policies for more information.
