CNS 2020 | General Submissions Requirements
The following requirements apply to all submissions.
For the CNS 2020 Annual Meeting you may make either a Poster Submission or a Symposium submission. Both submissions are now being accepted for the 2020 meeting. If you want to be considered for a data blitz session then you MUST check the appropriate box during the poster submission process and submit your poster by the November 18, 2019 deadline.
Symposia Submissions Deadline November 4, 2019
Poster Submissions Deadline November 18, 2019
Datablitz Consideration Deadline November 18, 2019
The submission process comprises the following steps.
- Create a New CNS Meeting Account – To create a new CNS Meeting Account (for purposes of registering or submitting an abstract), you must first verify that your CNS membership is paid through March 27, 2020. After clicking the ‘Create an Account’ button, you will be taken to the membership page to verify your membership. If you are not a CNS member paid through March 27, 2020, you will be given an opportunity to join or renew.
- Create an Account Profile – After verifying your membership you will be returned to the page to create your account profile. By default, your account profile will contain the information from your CNS membership account. You can change this information before creating your CNS Meeting Account.
- Make Your Submission – On your CNS Meeting Account home page, click either the Symposium Submission button or the Poster Submission button.
You must be a CNS member to submit and your membership must be current at the time of submission. Your CNS membership will be checked at the time you create your CNS Meeting Account. You can create a CNS Meeting Account as a Non-Member, but you will be limited to meeting registration only; non-members cannot make abstract submissions. To join or renew your CNS membership, please see the Join or Renew Membership page. It is less expensive to join CNS and register as member than to register as a non-member.
One Submission Rule
An individual may be FIRST AUTHOR on only ONE poster abstract submission. Individuals may, however, be co-authors on more than one submission. When making a submission, please check with the appropriate authors to ensure that this rule is being followed.
You can log into your CNS Meeting Account at any time to revise your submission. Absolutely no revisions will be allowed for Symposia revisions after the deadline of November 4, 2019. Absolutely no revisions will be allowed for Poster revisions after the deadline of November 18, 2019.
The fee to submit an abstract is $75 (U.S. funds). This submission fee is not refundable.
During the submission process, you will be directed to our secured online payment system. You can pay your submission fee by credit card online.
If the payment site is temporarily down or not functioning properly, please try again later. Your submission cannot be made until your registration and submission fees are paid. If you have problems paying, please .
You can verify the content of your abstract submission by viewing the ‘Verify Submission’ page in your CNS Meeting Account. This page also provides a button for emailing yourself a copy of your submission.
