Abstract Submission

The Society for Neuroeconomics invites submission of research abstracts for its 2018 annual meeting. Abstracts are encouraged from any area of neuroeconomics and decision neuroscience research. All submissions will be evaluated by a Program Committee.

About the Meeting

The Society for Neuroeconomics promotes interdisciplinary research and discussion through its annual meeting.  The meeting is attended by scholars in all levels and areas of neuroeconomics research including the fields of economics, psychology, neuroscience, finance and medicine.  The meeting’s format, consisting of general sessions, meals, and a reception, provides ample opportunities for networking and offline discussions.

How to Submit

All abstracts will be blind-reviewed by the Program Committee.

Submissions will be made through the Conference Manager Software and all submitters are required to be members of the Society for Neuroeconomics.

All submissions will be considered for a 20-minute slide presentation, unless the submitter opts out. If your submission is not selected for a slide presentation, the Program Committee will automatically consider it for a poster presentation. A small selection of posters will also be selected for Poster Highlights, two-minute oral spotlight presentations held during the general sessions.

Submission Deadlines

Oral Abstracts – CLOSED
Late Breaking Posters – Accepted until August 24 or until capacity is reached

Submission deadlines are 23:59 Central Daylight Time on the indicated submission date.

IMPORTANT: Confirmations of accepted oral abstracts will be issued in early July. If you have not received a confirmation email from us by July 15th, please Contact Us

Abstract Submission Guidelines

When submitting an abstract for the 2018 Society for Neuroeconomics Meeting, please refer to the Abstract Submission Guidelines below.

Abstract Submission Guidelines
  • Ensure your membership is in good standing
  • Select a Presentation type (Oral or poster). Please note all unsuccessful orals will be considered for a poster presentation
  • Select the methodology used in your research
  • Select a theme that most closely aligns with your submission
  • Enter your contact name, affiliation/institution name and email address (please note authors may specify only one affiliation)
  • Enter all corresponding authors in the order they should appear in the program
  • Identify the gender of the presenting author
  • Prepare an abstract title (max 225 character limit)
  • Prepare the abstract (max 2700 character limit)
  • By submitting an abstract, you agree to present at the Annual Conference, should your abstract be selected for the program
  • Abstracts should describe novel theoretical, computational and empirical results; abstracts that fail to do so will not be considered.
  • Abstracts should not report findings that will be published elsewhere prior to the meeting, although presentation of the work at a recent meeting (e.g., within a year) of another society is acceptable.
  • The abstract should state the study’s objective, briefly describe the methods used, summarize the results obtained, and state the conclusions. Ideally, these sections will be indicated explicitly. It is not satisfactory to say, “The results will be discussed.” Abstracts should emphasize the significance of results and general principles rather than describe common methods and procedures.
  • Use standard abbreviations for units of measure. Other abbreviations should be fully spelled out on first mention, followed by the abbreviation in parentheses.
  • Abstracts should be submitted in plain text and they will be formatted for the program.

  • Emotion & Affect
  • Individual & Lifespan Differences
