We invite abstract submissions to be presented as poster presentations at the 2019 Society for Social Neuroscience Annual Meeting in Chicago, IL, Friday, October 17-Saturday, October 18.

Investigators at any career stage are encouraged to present posters.

After submitting your abstract, you will receive a confirmation email containing the details of your submission. This email confirms that your abstract was received and will be reviewed by the S4SN review committee. Incomplete abstracts or submissions will be rejected after review.

The abstract submission deadline is Monday, June 4, 2018 (11:59PM latest time zone on earth). Acceptance notifications will be emailed by July 4.

Abstracts are handled by volunteers within the society. Please follow the guidelines below to make their jobs easier!

The Presenting Author (1st author) is required to register to attend the S4SN 2019 Annual Meeting.

The Presenting Author is responsible for adherence to these guidelines and for the merit of the presentation.


It is acceptable to submit an abstract that has also been submitted to SfN.

All abstracts must have an element of “Social” as well as “Neuroscience.” If the data are limited to social measures, for example, the findings should nevertheless be placed in the context of neuroscience.

Your abstract must contain the specific goals of the study, the methods used, a summary of the results, and a conclusion. It is not satisfactory to say, “The results will be discussed.”

The abstract title should clearly define the work discussed.


Abbreviations (of compounds, for example) must be spelled out in full at the first use. Do not use abbreviations in the title.

The abstract must be in one paragraph and cannot contain more than 2000 characters (~250 words). This limit does not include the title, author or affiliation information.

Do not add formatting to your abstract. Italic, bold, tabs and extra spaces are not permitted and will not appear in the final program.

Please do not enter the abstract title, author names, or affiliations in all uppercase or all lowercase letters. Sentence capitalization or title capitalization should be used for entering your abstract title.
