Submission Info

This general information applies to poster submissions as well as parallel session proposals.



Submission Type

Except for speakers in parallel sessions, all other presentations at the Dopamine 2020 meeting will be in poster form. Although most speakers in parallel sessions will be chosen by session chairs as part of their parallel session proposal, some abstracts submitted as poster presentations could be selected to be included in a parallel session. In such case, the participant will be contacted before the end of 2019.



Submission Process

The submission process comprises the following steps:
