Abstract Submission, Posters, and Awards

The Minnesota Neuromodulation Symposium invites abstracts from researchers (academia or industry), educators and clinicians for any topic relating to neuromodulation, including invasive and noninvasive techniques, modeling, neurophysiology, behavior, new technologies, clinical applications, and education/training approaches. We especially encourage undergraduate and graduate students to submit abstracts on their ongoing research. The abstracts will be peer reviewed by an assigned committee and the accepted abstracts will be invited for poster or oral presentations. All accepted abstracts will be published in the abstract book provided to the attendees of the Symposium and made available on the conference website.

All participants who have been accepted to present at the Symposium and are listed as the presenting author will be eligible for presenting their research as a brief invited Highlight Talk. We will select several exciting and innovative Highlight Talks that span a broad range of neuromodulation topics. The Highlight Talks will take place before the poster viewing session, allowing the speakers to provide a brief overview of their research to attract viewers to their posters.

At the Symposium, there will also be a poster competition to select top posters presented by non-faculty researchers. The poster award winners will be acknowledged at the Closing Ceremony and presented with a monetary prize.

Guidelines for Abstract Submission 

Abstract submission is closed as of January 24, 2017.

Notification of acceptance of the abstracts will be sent to the presenting author by February 15, 2017.

Guidelines for Poster Presentations

The poster dimensions must be no larger than 44 inches wide by 48 inches tall. Push pins will be provided to secure the poster onto the poster panel. Posters can be put up on the designated poster panel between 7:00AM and 8:30AM on April 14. The official poster viewing session will occur in the morning of April 14 where at least one co-author should present the poster. To participate in the Poster Award Competition, the presenter of the poster must be the first author (non-faculty) and available for the judges during the official poster viewing session.

Poster Award Competition and Guidelines

All non-faculty participants who have been accepted to present a poster at the Symposium and are listed as the first author will be eligible to participate in the Poster Award Competition. A group of judges will evaluate posters during the official poster viewing sessions on April 14. The judges will evaluate the originality, significance, and reliability of the presented work as well as the clarity of the poster presentation. We will select one 1st place, two 2nd place, and three 3rd place winners. Each award will consist of a certificate and a cash award ($500, $300, $200, respectively) presented to the winners at the Closing Ceremony on April 14.
