The first step is registration. Only after registration will you have access to your personal myDNM area, from which you will have access to a variety of additional information.
Members of the Organising Committee, session chairs and all their speakers are already 'pre-registered'; please don't register again! If you have any questions, contact us —we're here to help!
That's the hard part (unless your expenses are covered, of course!), but remember that payment is fundamental for the organisation of this excellent meeting.
The official language of the meeting, both for oral and poster presentations, is English.
The guidelines for the preparation of abstracts are the same for everyone. The guidelines shown below are also available through the abstract submission form. Abstracts are submitted exclusively through this website, through your personal myDNM area.
The title must start in uppercase and continue in lowercase, except for conventional terms (ATP, DNA, NFκB, etc). Example:
This title is written correctly
This Title is Not Properly Written
ALSO THIS TITLE IS WRONG
If more than one author (but only in that case), underline your name (the presenting author, in whatever position you appear in the author list) and use commas to separate the author names; do not use 'and' before the last author. Write your name and surname in full; for any other authors use initial(s) for the first name(s) followed by the surname. If more than one affiliation (but only in that case), use sequential superscript numbers to identify each institution. Example:
M. Rossi1, J. Doe2, F.C. Bloggs1,2
1Dept Biomembranes, Golgi & Veratti Univ., Pavia, Italy
2Dept Bioblast Analyses, Altmann Univ., Leipzig, Germany
Keep the abstract text to within 2000 characters, spaces included (this is roughly equivalent to 250 words).
All speakers should submit an abstract for their presentation. All other participants are strongly encouraged to submit an abstract for a poster presentation.
As a result of a combined effort by the Dutch Neuroscience Meeting organisers, the Dutch Neurofederation, and various neuroscience-focussed Graduate Schools within the Netherlands, Master students who present a poster at one of the two poster sessions can attend the meeting FOR FREE on that day.
All Master students are encouraged to participate.
N.B. Master students awarded a waived registration who do not show up to present their poster will be charged 30 EUR after the meeting.

The format of your presentation (duration and discussion times) should have been communicated to you by your session chair. Presentations should be in English. Please remember that most people in your audience are not native English speakers - speak clearly (whether or not English is your native tongue) and not too fast.
Beamer equipment is available in all lecture rooms. Your session chair is in charge of the computer logistics. Room assistance is available during each session for additional help. Please contact your session chair or co-chair well in advance of the start of your session to arrange for a swift change of files between presentations. The organisers' suggestion to the moderators is for all presentation files to be collected on a single laptop.
For any questions, contact your direct session organiser (chair). If you need any clarifications, please contact us .

In addition to the Instructions for Proposal Submission (that included the guidelines for your original session proposal; this document is also available in your personal myDNM area), the Organising Committee provides the following suggestions in the hope that these will contribute to the successful development of your session and the meeting in general.
Your task at the meeting is to chair the session and oversee the computer logistics. A beamer (with an HDMI connection) is available during the session but you need to bring a laptop to complete the projection equipment; make sure that you have appropriate adaptor(s). Room assistance will be available. The organisers strongly advise you to collect all the presentation files on a single laptop prior to your session. This will guarantee a smooth exchange between the presentations. Please note that this is a strictly "in-person" meeting and remote presentations cannot be supported.
Please ensure strict adherence to the schedule stated in the programme. This is crucial in order to enable participants interested in different subjects to move between different parallel sessions. Please understand that this is of the utmost importance and convey the concept to all your speakers.
Doubts about something? Don't panic: if you need any help, we'll be happy to assist you.
