Abstract submission opens April 17 and will close at 5 p.m. EDT on May 8.
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, opening in early March 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 Neuorscience Meeting Planner, coming in mid-August.
Ninety 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. The dynamic poster experiment for 2014 will include 10 presentations per half day, for a total of 90 presentations.
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, 2014, at 5 p.m.
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 SfN press conference, whichever comes first.
