APS: Call for Papers

The Association for Physiological Sciences (APS) will open their submission portal for posters and presentations on October 1st, 2013 Symposia submissions are accepted through midnight December 1, 2013, Pacific Standard Time. Poster submissions are accepted through midnight January 31, 2014, Pacific Standard Time.

Posters offer the opportunity to present data and have substantive discussions with interested colleagues. The audience circulates among the posters, stopping to discuss papers of particular interest to them. Authors present their papers using a visual medium with key excerpts from the papers displayed on a 4′ high x 8′ wide free-standing bulletin board. Poster presentations should incorporate illustrative materials such as tables, graphs, photographs, and large-print text, and materials should be clearly readable from a distance of three feet (primary text font should be 20 points or larger, and headings font at least 30 points). Posters are assigned a session number and bulletin board number and are organized by keyword when possible. No audio visual equipment can be used.

Like all other presentations, poster presentations should represent completed work. Please do NOT submit a proposal if the data are still pending. Posters that discuss new scientific findings are especially encouraged.

When possible, the poster title should indicate the important result (e.g., lesions of frontal cortex disrupt divided attention) rather than the experimental question (e.g., frontal cortex and divided attention). A maximum of 15 presenters or authors may be included with the submission. Presenters are required to bring copies of their papers to the meeting (50 copies or more recommended).

Posters will be scheduled into one of several poster sessions from Thursday evening through Sunday afternoon.
