The following information will be requested during the registration procedure (we suggest printing this page):
1. Personal data
Your personal data are required including the type of your presentation. If you will participate as presenting scientist (poster or oral), the abstract of your presentation must be submitted during the registration procedure.
It is not possible to first register and to later submit an abstract. Please be aware that all plenary lectures and symposium speaker's talks are invited lectures.
However, each symposium has two slots reserved for Young Investigator Presentations. Those will be selected from the submissions. Eligible are young scientists who did not yet complete their Ph.D./M.D (i.e. students)
at the time of the conference. In addition, one Breaking News symposium offers slots for young investigator talks.
2. Information about your payment method
If you wish to pay by credit card, please have your credit card information available. A credit card fee of 7 € will be charged.
In case you want to pay by transfer, please use the following account:
|Account Holder:||Neurowissenschaftliche Gesellschaft e.V.|
|BLZ:||100 708 48|
|Account Number:||463 8664 00|
It is mandatory that you indicate your full name (first name and family name) and your Registration ID on the transfer form. Otherwise, we cannot process your payment. Please transfer your fee within 14 days after registration. Registration is only valid after receipt of the full registration fee. The registration fee is non-refundable after the deadline for early registration.
Important notice: The difference between the registration fee for non-members and members both for students and senior scientists is equivalent to the annual membership fee for the German Neuroscience Society (i.e. EUR 70 for seniors and EUR 30 for students).
We recommend, therefore, to become a member instead, and take advantage of the German Neuroscience Society. If you become a member now, your membership will be effective as soon as we have received your application form, however, your payment for membership fee will taken into account for the entire year 2017.
Members of a FENS Member Society (see "National Societies" on the FENS website) are entitled to register at the same fee as members of the German Neuroscience Society.
Members of the German Neuroscience Society are automatically members of FENS
To register for the 12th Goettingen Meeting of the German Neuroscience Society you do not need a membership number. Please send your membership application by postal mail, fax or email to GNS and at the same time you can register for this meeting. We will verify your data after registration is closed.
3. Selection of symposia
You are requested to select the symposium you wish to attend for each day. For information on symposia, please visit the preliminary program.
4. Abstract submission / Type of participation
Abstracts are required for poster and oral presentations. Oral presentations are plenary lectures, talks in symposia and young investigator presentations.
The first two are invited presentations. For the latter, however, students (i.e. young scientists who did not complete their Ph.D./M.D.) can apply.
There are two options for young investigator presentations:
1) Each symposium has two slots for young investigator presentations.
2) One Breaking News Symposium offers in addition slots for young investigator presentations.
As a student you have the choice to indicate on the registration form whether you want to participate with a poster presentation or whether you prefer giving an oral presentation if selected. The program committee will select the young investigator presentations from these submissions and assign them either to a symposium or to the Breaking News symposium.
The duration of an oral presentation is 10 minutes (incl. discussion).
If not selected for an oral presentation you agree that your contributions will be automatically assigned to the poster sessions.
You should have your abstract ready in its final version before starting the process. The following components are required:
- Title of the abstract
- Authors’ affiliations
- Text body (max. 3.500 characters including spaces)
You are allowed to add one figure and one table to your abstract. The file must adhere to the following requirements:
- Only JPEG or GIF images are acceptable.
- Please create JPEG image file only in RGB color mode (not CMYK).
- The table must be converted to a JPEG or GIF image file (see below).
- If you wish, you can combine tables and/or figures to one figure / image file.
- Maximum size: 200 KB.
- Maximum width: 550 pixel, maximum height: 450 pixel (all larger figures will be scaled down)
The registered participant is automatically the first, i.e. presenting author of the contribution. Your personal data create the affiliation of the presenting author. Each regular participant is entitled to submit one poster abstract as presenting author. Speakers in symposia and plenary speakers are entitled to present one poster in addition to their oral presentation. This second abstract must also be submitted during the registration procedure. Later submission of this poster abstract is not possible, it must also be entered during the initial registration procedure.
