About the Meeting

The Flux Society’s purpose is to advance the understanding of human brain development by serving as a forum for professional and student scientists, physicians, and educators to: exchange information and educate the next generation of developmental cognitive neuroscience researchers; make widely available scientific research findings on brain development; encourage translational research to clinical populations; promote public information by discussing implications on the fields of education, health, juvenile law, parenting, and mental health, and encourage further progress in the field of developmental cognitive neuroscience.

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 Flux Society. All submissions will be considered for a 20-minute Science of Learning Symposium as well as a 20-minute Flash Talk, unless the submitter opts out. Flash Talk presenters will also present their posters at the Flux Congress.

Submission Deadlines

Abstract submissions open – February 28, 2018 Abstract submissions close – April 30, 2018 Submission deadlines are 23:59 Central Daylight Time on the indicated submission date. IMPORTANT: Confirmations of accepted oral abstracts will be issued in early June. If you have not received a confirmation email from us by June 10th, please Contact Us

Submission Guidelines
  • Ensure your membership is in good standing
  • 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
  • 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 Congress, should your abstract be selected for the program
  • 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. Submission Themes:

  • Executive functioning
  • Brain function
  • Brain connectivity
  • Socioemotional processing
  • Learning
  • Rewards/Motivation
  • Education
  • Memory
  • Environment (stress, SES)
  • Brain structure
  • Networks
  • Mechanisms (hormones, neurotransmitters, physiology)
  • Methods
  • Clinical populations
  • Attention
  • Language
  • Other

*Please note the deadline for submission of April 30, 2018 at 23:59 Central Daylight Time.
