- Submit your Poster abstract in the format below
Formatting - Poster abstracts will only be accepted in English to facilitate ease of review and publication.
Sections - Include each section heading, but do not repeat the actual question in the body of your Poster abstract.
Limit your title to 30 words or less
A 100-word synopsis of each Poster abstract must be submitted.
It should include a brief summary of the problem, methods, results, and conclusions. The synopsis must include text only, without equations or images and be without references or citations to items described in the full Poster abstract.
"Who will benefit from this information?"
"Why was this study/research/clinical improvement performed?"
"How was the problem studied or how did you become aware of the gap in clinical performance?"
"Principal data / statistical analysis / result of making the change"
"What is your interpretation of the data / outcome?"
"What is the relevance to future research, training or clinical practice?"
At least one reference is strongly suggested, but the total number is not limited.
- Limit your title to 30 words or less
- Limit the body of your Poster abstract to 500 words or less (it should fit on one page)
- The content may not promote the proprietary interests of any commercial entity. Evident bias in favor of a particular product or company is grounds for rejection.
- Commercial logos may not be included in a Poster, or presented on slides for an accepted presentation.
- Content must be restricted to pure science, industry issues and operation of devices, Product /company names should be included only to identify specific hardware/software/ peripherals necessary to understand a study, but not to promote proprietary interests (see Point 1)
- All recommendations involving clinical medicine must be based on evidence that is accepted within the profession of medicine as adequate justification for their indications and contraindications in the care of patients.
- All scientific research referred to, reported or used in support or justification of a patient care recommendation must conform to generally accepted standards of experimental design, data collection and analysis.
Submitting Your Poster
- The Poster abstract should include the first author's and all co-authors names and affiliations - institutions.
- In case you do not yet have a user name, you will be requested to subscribe first.
- We highly recommend that you become a member and register as soon as possible in order to take advantage of the discounts for registration and hotel accommodations.

- Keywords: authors are required to provide 3-6 keywords (start from general keyword for example "Neurosurgery" to more specifics such as "brain tumor" or "nanotechnology").
- Poster size is maximum 3 (height) x 5 (length) feet.
- Posters may be disciplined for the duration of the meeting.
- Poster presenters must at least spend an hour next to their posters to explain the science to the audience.
- Multiple Poster abstracts could be submitted by an author but each poster should be presented by a different presenter (co-authors) unless it is allowed by the congress secretariat: Bryan.Aroz@Worldbrainmapping.org.
- The Poster abstract is selected for presentation in a poster format. Poster abstracts are grouped by topic and are displayed throughout the meeting.
- Oral presentation: Highest ranking Posters/submissions will be selected for oral presentations.
Poster abstract Format
- Poster abstracts titles should be brief and reflect the content of the research. The title (max. 30 words) is important since it focuses attention (it is the "showcase" for the presentation).

- The preferred font is Verdana.
Poster abstract Selection Process
Poster abstracts submitted for presentation will be reviewed by an international panel of experts in the field of the subject.
The Poster abstract will be peer reviewed to ensure fairness and eliminate possible bias and chosen based on ranking by science committee.
Research obviously not yet performed, and results not yet obtained will be banned.
Poster abstracts selected for oral and/or poster presentation should be presented at the meeting. If a selected presenting author cannot attend, he should assign a replacement and inform the SBMT meeting manager of the replacement as soon as possible.
