Promotional package for the SfN Annual Meeting
at an SfN membership rate

An exclusive opportunity for you to submit an abstract and register for Neuroscience 2024, Society for Neuroscience (SfN)’s annual meeting taking place at Chicago between 5-9 October, at the SfN member rate.
ISM Slots
The International Society Member (ISM) abstract slots, provided by and administered by the International Brain Research Organization (IBRO), offer international opportunities for submitting abstracts for Neuroscience 2024 and registering at the SfN member rate, benefiting individuals with limited resources to join the meeting and encouraging increased participation among under-resourced countries.
Call for applications
A definite number of interested participants – Master’s and PhD students, and postdoctoral fellows – will receive a unique code from IBRO on a first-come, first-served basis that they will subsequently use when submitting their abstracts. Following the abstract submission, individuals with ISM slot codes are recorded into SfN’s registration system and may then receive the benefit of registering at the meeting starting from 16 July 2024 at an SfN member rate. The call for the ISM slot applications for Neuroscience 2024 opens on 7 April and closes on 7 May 2024. IBRO will assign ISM slots on a rolling basis every week during this application period, which will allow ISM slot recipients to submit their abstracts from 23 April to 7 May 2024.
Master’s and PhD students and postdoctoral fellows from under-resourced countries are prioritized, followed by students and postdocs in Category I, II, and III countries of the regions as defined by the World Bank, while all eligible students and postdocs are encouraged to apply. Individuals who are SfN members are not eligible to receive and utilize an ISM code as part of their abstract submission and registration to the meeting. If you are or know a Master’s or a PhD student or a postdoctoral researcher based in Africa, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, or the Caribbean, this is a unique opportunity to submit an abstract and register for Neuroscience 2024 taking place in Chicago, USA, between 5-9 October at a membership rate!
