Accepted abstracts are organized into topically-based scientific poster sessions, Theme J poster sessions and nanosymposia. Abstracts are grouped together based on the theme and topic that abstract submitters select from the Themes and Topics list during abstract submission. Theme and topic selections help the Program Committee to group abstracts; they do not represent the titles of annual meeting sessions.
A limited number of abstracts will be selected for dynamic poster presentation. To offset the costs of this presentation format, dynamic poster presenters will be charged a $150 presentation fee, similar to the costs of printing a paper poster.
Don't Be A No-Show!
Annual meeting registration is now open. Remember, the abstract handling fee ($125) does not include registration for the annual meeting. First/presenting authors are expected to register for Neuroscience 2016 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. Visit the Registration page to learn about registration fees and deadlines.
Theme J Poster Format
For those who submit a Theme J (History and Education) abstract, note that Theme J 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 13, at 5 p.m.
Information and data included in abstracts submitted for the SfN annual meeting are embargoed until the conclusion of the SfN presentation or press conference. Abstract presentations may not be presented at another meeting or published in an archival scientific publication before the scheduled SfN presentation date unless it is at a published satellite event or SfN-hosted press conference for Neuroscience 2016. All authors must abide by SfN's embargo policy.
Coverage of an abstract, 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.
