Accepted abstracts have been organized into scientific poster sessions, Theme H poster sessions, and nanosymposia. All abstract submitters should have received confirmation of their abstract's acceptance and session assignment 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 Neuorscience Meeting Planner, coming in mid-August.
A limited number of abstracts were selected for dynamic poster presentation from submitters who indicated interest in this presentation format during abstract submission. The dynamic poster experiment for 2013 will include ten presentations per half day, for a total of 90 presentations. Dynamic poster presentation times will be included in the online Neuroscience Meeting Planner (coming in mid-August) and the printed Program books.
Don't Be a No-Show
First authors are expected to register for Neuroscience 2013 and present their abstracts in a poster session or nanosymposium. Registration opens on Wednesday, July 17 for SfN members and on Tuesday, July 23 for nonmembers. If the first author cannot attend, presentation by a co-author is acceptable.
Abstract Withdrawal Options - Submit abstract withdrawal request »
If none of the authors on the abstract can present, the sponsor author of the abstract must submit a request to mark the 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as "unable to attend" (abstract and author block will remain listed in the online Neuroscience Meeting Planner) or "withdrawn" (abstract and author block will be removed from the online Neuroscience Meeting Planner).
Note: At this date, it cannot be guaranteed that a withdrawn abstract will be removed from the printed Program.
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 submitted 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, Nov. 10 at 5 p.m. The day of a Theme H presenter's one-hour presentation time is designated by SA (Saturday) or SU (Sunday) at the end of the presentation number.
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.
