Abstract Review Process:

Abstracts submitted for the 2018 NANS Annual Meeting are blindly reviewed by an independent scientific review committee and scored on scientific merit, originality, and the relevancy to the field of neuromodulation. Although scientific data is important, the quality of the abstract is the primary determinant for acceptance by the NANS Scientific Program Committee. The Scientific Program Committee has final discretion regarding abstract presentation format.
