Abstract Submission Instructions


The ASN Program Committee reviews each abstract submission for quality, ethical guidelines and scientific merit. A blind grading process is used to ensure anonymity and equality.

From the online submissions, the Abstract Committee will determine the qualified abstracts to be presented as posters during the Poster Sessions and the Oral Presentation sessions.  If you want to be considered for an Oral Presentation, you will have the opportunity to indicate that on your abstract submission form.


All accepted abstracts will be published electronically in a special supplemental issue of ASN NEURO.
