The science program at the Annual Meeting that highlights major research conducted after the AAN abstract deadline has been renamed the Emerging Science program.
Submissions for the 2012 Emerging Science program, formerly known as the Late-breaking Science program, are now being accepted online.
Abstracts will be accepted until February 7, 2012.
The AAN encourages abstracts from neurologists, neuroscientists, and other researchers whose work is of major scientific importance, warranting expedited presentation and publication. Key aspects of the research must have been conducted after October 24, 2011.
This year there is a fee for abstract submission of $50 for AAN members and $150 for nonmembers.
"We're seeking to highlight at the 2012 Annual Meeting the most important scientific advances in neuroscience and neurology that emerged after the October abstract deadline," said Lisa DeAngelis, MD, FAAN, chair, Science Committee and Scientific Program Subcommittee.
