IMPORTANT CHANGES TO ABSTRACT SUBMISSION PROCESS

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY!

Please read all instructions carefully. All abstracts must be submitted in the appropriate format. Any deviation from the required format may not be printed/accepted. All accepted abstracts will be printed as submitted. Please check your work carefully, as once it has been submitted no changes can be made. If you have any questions regarding the submission instructions, please contact the INS office (614) 263-4200 or by e-mail at osu_ins@postbox.acs.ohio-state.edu.

Submission Changes: · The title of your submission cannot exceed 80 characters (including spaces, dashes, periods, etc.). Your abstract will be truncated in the event that you exceed the 80 character maximum requirement.

· The number of copies needed to review your submission has increased from 5 copies to 6 copies.

· A diskette with your submission text is no longer required.

· The length of the research abstract has been increased to 250 words. This abstract must contain sufficient information for the program committee to make a determination about scientific quality.

· The two page research summary has been eliminated, except for those wishing to be considered for the Butters, Cermak or Rennick Award.

A Note from the Program Chair, Stefano F. Cappa:
The program for the Brasilia meeting will include:
- State of the art lectures, presented by invited experts, which will highlight areas of broad clinical and theoretical interest, with a special emphasis on topics enjoying fast progress, or relevant changes in the research perspective. A special effort will be made to select topics which have not been covered by previous plenary lectures, or which have already been given large emphasis in other meetings.

- Symposia: the presence of excellent symposia is a key feature for a successful meeting. The possibility to select from a large number of good proposals is a necessary step to achieve this goal: I would thus like to encourage submissions on a variety of topics, involving all areas of clinical and experimental neuropsychology. The only necessary requirement is to include 4-5 speakers whose presentations form a coherent whole: this may be because they present complementary data, but they may also propose different points of view, or even competing perspectives (controversies).

- Platform and poster presentations will be organized as usual, according to broad thematic area. Preference for the selection as platform presentation will take into account, among other factors, the general interest of the topic and the need not to replicate information presented in the Symposia.

Deadline for Receipt: November 3, 2000. Note: This means that the INS office must receive submissions by this date.

Platform or Symposia may be submitted. The decision of the Program Chariperson is final. Abstracts sent to other national societies or those published previously will not be considered. There are no limitations on number of submissions but authors are asked to exercise discretion, since submitting multiple abstracts may create scheduling problems. All abstracts are subject to peer review. All abstracts will be published in the Journal of the International Neuropsychological Society (JINS) in a universal manner, regardless of the presentation format chosen.

Presentation Formats:

1) Platform sessions: More poster session submissions than oral platform session submissions are to be accepted.

a) Paper sessions: All accepted papers scheduled for platform sessions will be 12-15 minutes for presentation and 3 minutes for discussion. The session chairpersons will rigorously adhere to these time limits, so that persons can move between rooms to hear other presentations.

b) Poster sessions: The poster format has proven to be an effective and popular method for communication of scientific information. The poster session will be designed to provide a more intimate forum for informal discussion than is permitted by the regular platform presentation. Note carefully that poster sessions are not intended for other than graphic presentations, and authors will be responsible for arranging and underwriting the cost of special needs with the INS office. Poster exhibitors are encouraged to bring copies of their abstract, paper, or a handout for viewers.

2. Symposia: Symposia are topical platform sessions arranged by the organizer and which deal with specific issues in neuropsychology. Each participant appears by the organizer's invitation and presents material related to the topic at hand. These sessions are distinct from paper sessions in that a number of speakers deal with the same issues, thus creating an integrated presentation for the audience. The program committee especially invites symposia presentations this year in the content areas previously described.

Audio Visual Parameters: INS will provide the following audio visual equipment for all accepted paper and symposia sessions: Slide projection, Overhead projection, and LCD projection to be used in conjunction with PowerPoint presentations. Other requests can be submitted to the INS office in writing, but are subject to approval by the Executive Secretary.
