CACN Society Prizes

 

The President’s Prize

The CACN President’s Prize is awarded for the best expanded abstract in pediatric neuroscience by a resident or fellow. 

  • Contestants must be a member in good standing with any one of the five Societies of the CNSF (a Junior member or an Active member within two years of receiving their certificate).
  • Contestants need not be the sole authors, but should have been primarily responsible for the work being presented.
  • Contestants must submit a structured abstract, expanded up to, but not exceeding 3 pages, which is to include any figures, tables, and necessary references. Submissions longer than 3 pages of single spaced typing will not be considered. The format followed should consist of Background, Materials and Methods, Results, and Conclusions. The authors should bear in mind, in the background section, that not all judges will be experts in the subject of the research paper.
  • Contestants must submit a letter from their program chair indicating that the work was done by the resident and was principally the work of that resident.
  • Contestants must submit a small biography which indicates where the candidate is in their residency or in a diploma program, and listing other work that he/she has done.
  • Contestants must also submit their abstract to the CNSF Annual Congress, on the official online abstract submission site.
  • This prize will consist of:
    • Presentation of your work during the Grand Plenary session at the Congress
    • A Prize Certificate
    • $1,000 cash
    • Full registration to the Congress
