Poster sessions at SfN's annual meeting allow for the casual exchange of key scientific breakthroughs and emerging innovations within the neuroscience field. Presenters must submit an abstract during the abstract submission period in order to be considered for participation in a poster session at the annual meeting.
Poster presenters will be assigned to:
- A 6 foot (1.8 meter) by 4 foot (1.2 meter) poster board to be used for presentation
- A one-hour presentation time during their 4-hour session.
Posters are placed on display for the entirety of the assigned 4-hour poster session. Within each session, poster presenters are given a specific, one-hour presentation time when they are expected to be present at their poster. Presenters may stay longer, but are required to be present during their assigned presentation time.
Theme J Posters Session
Theme J (History, Education, and Society) abstracts are presented in a Theme J poster session that takes place Saturday–Sunday during the annual meeting. Theme J posters are displayed beginning at 1 p.m. on Saturday and remain posted until 5 p.m. on Sunday. One-hour presentation times occur either Saturday afternoon or Sunday morning.
