GUIDELINES FOR THE SUBMISSION OF ABSTRACTS
Participants interested in presenting a Poster are invited to submit an abstract. Submitted posters should present state-of-the-art applicative and translational neuroscience findings, which are related to one of the abstract topics (below). Although the posters should have a strong scientific bearing, they should also have a broad technology oriented and applicative focus. Thus, the applicants are encouraged to add a non-technical summary (industry oriented) indicating possible study implications and/or applications.
