After submitting your abstract, you will receive an email containing the details of your submission and confirming your submission. All abstracts will be reviewed by the S4SN Program Committee.

Abstract Content

Please follow these guidelines when submitting your abstract. The Presenting Author (1st 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 subject matter of the abstract has only one element, e.g. social, the findings must 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 presenting author is required to register to attend the S4SN 2019 Annual Meeting

Additional instructions on formatting are provided on the abstract submission site.

You must be a current S4SN 2019-2020 Member in order to submit. To join or renew your S4SN Membership visit:
