Abstract Submissions

You must be an SNL member to submit an abstract.

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

The standard elements of an abstract are Introduction, Methods, Results, and a 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*.

* NEW for 2020 We recognize that research has been interrupted due to COVID-19 in many, if not all labs around the world. For SNL 2020, we welcome submissions of both full/completed studies, as well as projects in earlier stages. For presenters who would like to solicit input regarding work in progress and/or planned work, we are offering a special poster designation, the “Sandbox Series.” These posters will describe the motivation and design of the study, present pilot data, and discuss how potential outcomes would be interpreted. Abstracts should highlight the preliminary nature of the findings.

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.
