Undergraduate Poster Session at SFN

Each year the Faculty for Undergraduate Neuroscience sponsors an Undergraduate Poster Session and Social at the Society for Neuroscience Meeting.  This is usually held on the Sunday evening of the Meeting.


The call for submissions for the 2019 meeting is closed.  The call for the 2020 meeting will go out in late August or early September.   The poster session is usually scheduled for the Sunday evening of the SFN meeting.  Details will be posted closer to the 2020 meeting.

About the Session:
The FUN Undergraduate Poster Session and Social focuses on presentations by undergraduate researchers, followed by an awards ceremony.  Any undergraduate attending the meeting may present if sponsored by a FUN member. 

Each FUN member (regular or pre-faculty status) in good standing (that means dues are paid) can sponsor one submission for the FUN Social and Poster Session.  In addition, Institutional members can sponsor one submission, but it is up to the home institution to determine which project.  We usually have about 175 board faces, with 20 reserved for Travel Award winners, leaving about 155 to be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.  Your student does need to be registered for the SfN meeting to participate in the FUN Poster session, but does not need to be presenting their poster during the main conference.

Faculty should not sponsor a submission unless they can confirm that the student can attend the session.  Please be sure that you have paid your dues before having your student submit, it saves us lots of emails!

The call for posters usually goes out in late August or early September and remains open for about 30 days or until all boards fill (which usually happens). 

Poster Boards are 4' x 6' in size, please be sure your poster will fit completely on your board.
