Poster Abstract Submissions

Why Submit an Abstract?

You are invited to submit an abstract for consideration for Poster Session presentation during the 32nd International Congress of Clinical Neurophysiology in Geneva, Switzerland on 4-8 September 2022.

By presenting at the ICCN 2022, you will:

  • Share your research at the leading international forum for clinical neurophysiologists
  • Engage in open dialogue with some of the 1,500+ attendees for future collaborative opportunities
  • Gain recognition among your peers by having your research published in an online supplement of Clinical Neurophysiology, the premier print publication of the clinical neurophysiology field

Submit an Abstract

Please review the instructions within the Oxford Abstracts online form before submitting your abstract. The abstract submission deadline is December 10, 2022 at 11:59 pm (ET).

Poster Session Times and Author Attendance

Poster Sessions will occur from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm Tuesday through Thursday, corresponding with posted exhibitor hours. Each author will be assigned one day for exhibiting their poster. Authors are required to display their posters all day on the day of their Poster Session during posted exhibitor hours. Authors are expected to stand by and present their posters during their assigned 90-minute Poster Session, which will take place between the morning and afternoon scientific symposia. *By submitting an abstract to ICCN 2022, abstract authors agree that at least one author will attend the meeting and will be available to present on the date and at the time assigned by the Program Planning Committee.

Abstract Acceptances

You will receive your acceptance notice and session timing/instructions via email by January 31, 2022; please keep your email information up-to-date within the Oxford Abstract System to ensure receipt of acceptance. Once poster presentations have been scheduled, the complexity of the program planning process prevents any changes in the type of session, time, or location of any presentation. There are no exceptions.

Abstract acceptance obligates the author to pay the meeting registration fee and attend the assigned Poster Session.

Abstract Withdrawals

Written notification of withdrawal of an abstract must be received by IFCN Headquarters by June 30, 2022 if the abstract cannot be included in the Congress materials. Any withdrawal requests made after June 30, 2022 will be honored by IFCN Headquarters; however, based on the date of the request, the abstract may be included in the materials, and a “Withdrawn by Author” sign will appear on the poster board.

What the Abstract Should and Should Not Include

The Scientific Program Committee reviews each abstract that is submitted. The scientific quality of the abstracts presented contributes substantially toward making the ICCN the leading international forum for new clinical neurophysiology research. Therefore, there is a standard for abstract acceptance. The following guidelines apply to each abstract:

Submitted abstracts are limited to 400 words. The following fields are required for each submission and will count toward the total word limit: Introduction; Methods; Results; Conclusion.
