Submit a poster abstract

The conference will include general poster sessions in which posters from all areas of learning and memory research are welcome.  All meeting attendees are welcome to present a poster, however we especially encourage posters presented by graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. Four poster abstracts will be selected prior to the conference for presentation as talks in the general speaker sessions. In addition, there will be an on-site poster competition for best posters.  All posters selected for talks/best posters will earn awards.

Poster presenters must be registered for the meeting and the deadline for poster abstract submission is March 31, 2017.

Poster abstracts can be emailed to Susan Cushman ( Please include “poster abstract 2017″ and the last name of the presenting author in the subject line of your email.  Abstracts should be approximately 200 words long.  Abstracts will be edited to a common format for the conference abstract booklet and must therefore be generated in an editable format.
