  • Abstract must be submitted in .pdf or .doc  format (.pdf preferred)

  • The name of the uploaded file should begin with the presenting autors last name

  • Program themes are based on those prescribed by the Society for Neuroscience (major themes A - J; we do not use the listed sub-themes).

  • Please include the title and author listing on the abstract document you will upload! This is to ensure that your abstract can be readily identified in the program. 

Poster Submission Guidelines:

  • Posters will be uploaded to "Gather Town" for the meeting, so all posters need to be submitted in advance. 

  • Posters should be submitted in .png,  .jpg, or .webp format. Do not upload a Powerpoint file!

Poster Awards:

  • Five poster awards will be given in the categories shown below; each award is $200

  • Those that completed programs in 2020-2021 may enter poster competitions of their former status if desired. For example, if work being presented was completed in 2020-2021 as an undergraduate, but you have already graduated, you may still enter the undergraduate competition.
