Registration Policies, Cancellations  & Refunds

First Author Registration Requirements

Registration is required for first authors of accepted posters, slides, and  symposia. If you are the first author of an accepted abstract, your  registration cannot be refunded. If the first author is unable to attend the  meeting and would like to appoint a substitute speaker/presenter, contact us at for final approval. The substitute  author must also register to attend the meeting.

Registration Payment Policy

Full payment of the registration fee must be made at the time of registration. Payment can be made by credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express), check (made payable to "CNS Virtual Meeting" and must be in US funds and drawn on a US bank). Check payments delay processing and must be received no later than April 24, 2020; include a printout of your CNS Virtual Registration payment form along with your payment and  mail to: CNS Meeting, c/o TM Events, Inc., 1688 Calabasa Drive, Lincoln, CA, 95648. Cash payments may also be made onsite at the Registration  Desk; cash payments should not be sent through the mail.

Registration Cancellation and Refund

All CNS 2020 Annual Meeting registration fees have been applied to the CNS Virtual Conference, and will include access to all meeting events, including keynote and award talks, symposia, data blitz talks, posters, exhibitors, and live chats during the May 2-5, 2020 conference, and limited later “on-demand” viewing. We do not take lightly the suffering, trauma and disruption faced by those impacted by the pandemic, and will do our utmost to support those who cannot attend the virtual meeting. However, it will be some weeks before we will be able to estimate the costs and penalties associated with the transition of the meeting from an in-person to a virtual event. Unfortunately, although the Cognitive Neuroscience Society carries meeting liability insurance that covers most disasters (natural and man-made), “organic pathogens” like the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus are not covered. We ask for your continued patience as we work through the financial implications of the COVID-19 epidemic on the Society.

I need to cancel my CNS 2020 Virtual Meeting registration.  Can I get a refund?

No refunds will be given for any CNS 2020 Virtual Meeting Registration fees paid.
