Abstract Submissions

Abstracts are submitted through your SNL account. You must be a member to submit an abstract. Members may submit more than one abstract. The first author must be a current 2024 member.

Abstract Format

Abstracts are limited to 500 words (not including the title, authors, and affiliations). The submission system does not allow figures in abstracts or the uploading of supplemental materials. Multiple submissions per first author are allowed. The abstract submission form allows you to specify whether you would prefer a slide or poster presentation.

The standard elements of an abstract are Introduction, Methods, Results, and Conclusion or Summary. It is not required that the sections be explicitly labeled as such. It is, however, important that each abstract contains sufficiently detailed descriptions of the methods and the results.

Submissions other than empirical and review studies will be considered (e.g. development of educational resources, historical studies, etc.) so long as they are focused on the neurobiology of language. Such submissions may deviate from the typical abstract format as appropriate.

Sandbox Series

SNL is pleased to once again offer the Sandbox Series, an optional designation for poster abstracts, which will allow presenters to solicit input regarding planned work or work in progress. These posters will describe the motivation and design of the study and discuss how potential outcomes would be interpreted. Pilot data, partially collected data, or partially analyzed data may be included. Abstracts should highlight the preliminary nature of the findings. Abstracts in the Sandbox Series may not necessarily include all the standard elements as listed under “Abstract Format”.

Submitting Your Abstract

Please complete your submission carefully. All abstracts must be in final form. Authors may edit abstracts online until the submission deadline. After the submission deadline, no typos or other errors may be corrected.

The submission fee is $40.00. Submission fees are non-refundable.
