- View presentation information: First authors of submitted abstracts have been emailed with information regarding their presentation date, time, and poster board location. Co-authors should ask their abstract's first author for information regarding their abstract, or refer to the Neuroscience Meeting Planner.
- Register for the Annual Meeting: Remember, payment of the $135 abstract handling fee does not include registration for the annual meeting. Abstract presenters must register in order to present at the annual meeting.
- Review presenter resources: In preparation for your presentation, review the presenter resources available
- Request a visa letter of invitation: If you will be traveling to Neuroscience 2018 from outside the U.S., review visa information and start gathering required travel documents.

During submission, abstract submitters will have the opportunity to express their interest in presenting a dynamic poster. Dynamic posters are poster presentations given on an electronic screen, allowing the presenter to incorporate multimedia elements into their poster.
To offset the costs of this presentation format, accepted dynamic poster presenters have been charged a $160 presentation fee, similar to the costs of printing a paper poster. This fee was assessed for accepted presenters in mid-July.
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.
Scientific Rigor in Annual Meeting Presentations
Accepted abstract presenters will be expected to transparently report a study’s experimental design and analytical methods in their poster or nanosymposium presentation at the annual meeting. Efforts to ensure scientific rigor include blinding, statistics, sample sizes, and replication. Error bars should be defined. Biological variables such as species, sex, age, strain, or cell line should be noted in the presentation, if applicable. Visit Neuronline to view multiple resources on scientific rigor.
Don't Be A No-Show!
Annual meeting registration is now open! The abstract handling fee ($135) does not include registration for the annual meeting. First/presenting authors are expected to register for Neuroscience 2018 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 Neuroscience 2018 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 afternoon., Sunday morning, and Sunday afternoon. Posters should remain on display for these three half-days for casual viewing and be removed by Sunday, November 4, at 5 p.m. PST.
Information and data in abstracts submitted for the SfN annual meeting are embargoed until the start 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 2018. 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.
