Undergraduate Poster Session at SFN
CALL FOR ABSTRACTS NOW CLOSEDAbstract submissions are now closed for the 2023 FUN Undergraduate Poster Session. The Poster Session will be held in conjunction with the Society for Neuroscience (SfN) Annual Meeting on Saturday, November 11, 2023 from 6:30pm - 8:30pm on the main floor of the Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC. This event showcases undergraduate student research to the entire SfN community, and connects undergraduate students with other trainees and graduate school advisors who attend the meeting. Any undergraduate student attending Neuroscience 2023 and sponsored by a FUN member may present a poster. The FUN poster does NOT have to be accepted by SfN or presented as part of the regular SfN meeting.
Each student abstract must be sponsored by a FUN member in good standing, and each FUN member can sponsor one student submission. A member institution or program can sponsor one additional submission from their program.
This year, we have 130 poster slots that will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Students must register for the SfN Annual Meeting to participate in the FUN Poster Session, but are not required to present their poster at the SfN conference. Students who have applied for a FUN Travel Award who also would like to present at the FUN poster session must submit their abstracts here.
Faculty should sponsor a submission only if they can confirm that the student will attend the session in person.
The call for abstracts will remain open until 130 submissions are received, or Sunday August 20, 2023, whichever occurs first.
Instructions for Abstract Submission
Students should work together with their advisor to finalize their abstract, then visit this link (https://forms.gle/6PpLAskyGawhTJSH7) to submit the abstract for the FUN Poster Session. Full contact information must be provided for both the presenting student and the sponsor. All required information must be submitted using this form; abstracts with links to external websites or another location will not be accepted. Submissions that do not conform to the instructions will not be accepted. No changes or edits can be made after the initial submission. Accepted submissions will be confirmed with a return email to both the first author and the FUN Member sponsor.
NOTE: All authors and sponsors are welcome and encouraged to attend the FUN Poster Session. All attendees must register for the SfN Annual Meeting. A link to SfN registration is provided at the end of the abstract submission form.
Poster boards are 4' x 6' landscape format. Please be sure that your poster will fit within this space. Only one poster may be displayed on any single board. For more information, see the Society for Neuroscience's guide to presenting a poster.
