Congress of Neurological Surgeons
Original Science Program:   A Question of Balance

Welcome to the Congress of Neurological Surgeons Online Abstract Center!

Digital Poster Center is now closed!

The Congress of Neurological Surgeons (CNS) is committed to facilitating exchange of the best clinical and basic neurosurgical science in our Original Science Program.

The CNS Original Science Program comprises three distinct formats: Oral Presentations, the Neurosurgical Forum, and Digital Posters. Irrespective of presentation format, all original science abstracts are also made continuously available digitally throughout the meeting and then archived afterwards as online digital posters.

The Oral Presentations session of the CNS Original Science Program presents the highest ranked abstracts from each neurosurgical subspecialty in eight-minute platform presentations followed by two-minutes of expert and audience discussion. The Oral Presentations sessions are organized by neurosurgical subspecialty and will be conducted simultaneously in physically contiguous lecture halls on Tuesday morning of the meeting. This arrangement allows attendees to shuttle between venues to view various presentations of interest. 24 Oral Presentations will also be presented during the Choice Abstracts Session on Sunday afternoon. The creation of a Digital Poster is also required for Oral Presentations abstracts.

Neurosurgical Forum is an informal session during which the authors make dynamic oral presentations to small groups in an interdisciplinary session. During the 75 minute session, authors will present their research to the senior leadership and interested meeting attendees. Neurosurgical Forum presentations are supported by illustrated posters (created from your online abstract submission and posted by the CNS). There is no time limit for your presentation as attendees will circulate throughout the Forum during the entire 75 minutes. The creation of a Digital Poster is also required for Neurosurgical Forum abstracts

All abstracts accepted for inclusion in the Original Science Program will be displayed continuously throughout the meeting as a Digital Poster, available for review on multiple plasma screens in the convention center and also after the meeting at the CNS website. Meeting participants have the opportunity to review and print copies of any poster at their convenience throughout the meeting. Your original abstract will be converted to a Digital Poster and you will be able to further enhance it.

The CNS must ensure balance, independence, objectivity, and scientific rigor in all of its educational activities. It is an ACCME requirement that audiences at educational programs for which continuing medical education hours are awarded be informed of a presenter’s academic and professional affiliations, and the existence of any significant financial interest or other relationship an author or co-author has with the manufacturer(s) of any commercial product(s) or services. Any such relationship must be disclosed.

Please do not hesitate to contact the CNS at with any questions or comments.
