ROTMAN CONFERENCE POSTER SUBMISSION

We welcome abstract submissions that focus on research relating to emotion and mood and anxiety disorders, including, but not limited to, behavioral, neuroimaging, survey, pharmacological, and clinical studies. Multidisciplinary studies are encouraged. The Program Committee for the Rotman-KLARU Emotion Conference expects to have high quality posters presented at the meeting. Abstract acceptance will be based on scientific content. The abstract should contain material that has not been published elsewhere previously. Abstracts that are unethical, incomplete, or contain insufficient data will be rejected. Though you are not required to register for the meeting prior to submitting an abstract, the presenter of the abstract must register for the meeting.

We look forward to welcoming you to the 2011 Rotman-KLARU Emotion Conference and seeing you in Toronto!
