Acceptance notifications will be emailed to first/presenting authors only in late June. Thank you for your interest in participating in Neuroscience 2014.


Abstract Sessioning

Accepted abstracts are organized into scientific poster sessions, Theme H poster sessions, and nanosymposia.

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

At Neuroscience 2014, 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.


Don't Be a No Show!

Please note that 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 in a poster session or nanosymposium. If the first/presenting author cannot attend, presentation by a co-author is acceptable. If no one can present, email program@sfn.org immediately to either mark your abstract as "Unable to Attend" or "Withdrawn". 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.
