Abstract submission opens April 16 and will close at 5 p.m. ET on May 7.
Accepted abstracts are organized into topically-based scientific poster sessions and nanosymposia and Theme H poster sessions. Abstract submitters should consult the Theme and Topics list before submitting their abstract to determine which topic best fits the abstract being submitted. It is important that you properly categorize your abstract so that it will be reviewed by the appropriate Program Committee member(s). Your theme and topic selection helps the Program Committee to group abstracts; they do not represent the titles of annual meeting sessions. The session in which your abstract is placed will likely have a different name.
First authors of submitted abstracts will receive confirmation of their abstract's acceptance 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 authors only. Other co-authors should ask their abstract's first author for information regarding their abstract, or refer to the Neuroscience Meeting Planner, available in mid-August.
Meeting Registration Opens in July
The abstract handling fee ($115) does not include registration to the annual meeting. First/presenting authors are expected to register for Neuroscience 2015 and present their abstracts. If the first/presenting author cannot attend, presentation by a co-author is acceptable. Only the author(s) attending the meeting need to register.
A limited number of abstracts will be selected for dynamic poster presentation. Abstract submitters will have the opportunity to indicate their interest in this presentation format during abstract submission.
Theme H Poster Format
Each SfN member may submit 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, October 18, 2015, at 5 p.m.
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.
