The Program Committee reviews and grades 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 Program Committee determines the qualified abstracts to be presented during the Data Blitz and Poster sessions. All submitted abstracts will be judged by a committee to ensure a high quality of scientific research.  

 

Abstracts will be accepted as a poster presentation unless there are issues related to: 

  • Ethics 
  • Lack of relationship to brain/cranial or spine/spinal cord trauma 
  • Lack of actual data in the abstract 
  • Lack of data details (p-values, sample size, % changes, etc.)  

 

Please click here for Poster Dimensions.

 

The Program Committee will select abstracts from all submissions to be presented as posters during the Poster Sessions. Please note that authors whose abstracts are selected for poster presentation will also be eligible to participate in the Data Blitz session if the presenting author is a trainee (undergraduate student, graduate, nursing or medical student, postdoctoral fellow, or resident). 

The Program Committee will select abstracts from all submissions to be presented orally during the Data Blitz sessions. Each presenter will be limited to 1-3 slides and a maximum of 3 minutes of presentation time. Data Blitz presenters will ALSO present a poster.  

All accepted abstracts will be published electronically (online) in the Journal of Neurotrauma to coordinate with day one of the conference, and will be included the issue that publishes following the conference. 

All Abstracts will be published online in the Journal of Neurotrauma.
