E-Poster Presentation Format
Due to challenges related to the COVID pandemic, including the partially virtual nature of the meeting and social distancing requirements in place in Texas, posters at the 2021 Annual Meeting will be presented in an e-poster format. More specific details related to submission of poster materials, formatting (PPT, PDF or video, etc), and interactive poster tours/presentation are pending and will be provided with poster acceptance notifications.

Previous Publication or Presentation
Abstracts which have been published in journals, meeting proceedings, or other publication, as well as those presented at meetings prior to the ACNS meeting are eligible and welcome for submission. All e-poster abstracts presented at the Annual Meeting will be published in the Journal of Clinical Neurophysiology.

Author Attendance Requirement – In-Person OR Virtual Options
ACNS is aware of the concerns and uncertainties related to COVID-19. At this time, the Society is planning to proceed with a hybrid meeting, including options to attend either in-person or virtually. Council will continue to monitor the situation in Texas and will reassess and communicate any changes as information becomes available.

By submitting an abstract to ACNS 2021 Annual Meeting, abstract authors agree that at least one author will attend the meeting (either in-person or virtually) and will be available to participate in a virtual, interactive e-poster tour/presentation on the date and at the time assigned by the Program Committee. All presenting authors are expected to register to attend the meeting by the deadline set forth in their acceptance notification. Abstracts for which an author is not pre-registered by the dates set forth will automatically be withdrawn from the program.

Authors will be notified of e-poster upload procedures and deadlines at the time of notification of acceptance.

E-Poster Cancellation Policy
At least one author or co-author on all posters is expected to register to attend the meeting for which they are accepted by the deadlines set forth in their acceptance notification. If this author cancels their registration prior to the meeting, the e-poster may be withdrawn from the program.
