Registration for the 55th Annual Meeting will open in June.
Poster abstract submissions will open in June with a deadline of August 11, 2016.
Annual Meeting Guest Policy:
ACNP Members, Fellows and Emeritus may only invite a guest to the meeting if the member is also attending the meeting. When we receive information regarding an invited guest, the Executive Office staff will ask the member to attest that he/she will attend the meeting before we will process the guest invitation.
An invited guest will be allowed to present a poster if he/she chooses to do so. The guest invitation will constitute sponsorship by the inviting member. No other rules for poster sponsorship will be required.
The quickest and most efficient way to invite a guest to the Annual Meeting is to send an email to the ACNP Executive Office with the name and email address of your guest along with confirmation of your attendance to the meeting. The Annual Meeting registration materials will then be forwarded to your guest.
The General Invitation Bank is fixed with 100 invitations that members may request for someone who is within 10 years of their last training or someone with a first time R award or K award. Members may use invitations from the bank by sponsoring a young colleague who wishes to attend the meeting only if the member is attending the meeting.
*There will be an initial limit of one extra invitation per member. Members may request additional invitations, however the invitees name will be placed on a waitlist and the invitation will only be extended if there are remaining invitations in the bank closer to the meeting date. Associate Members may use an invitation from the bank. Invitees from the bank will be allowed to present one poster at the meeting.
The Diversity Invitation Bank allows members to offer an additional invitation to a scientist from an underrepresented minority group including Pacific Islander, African-American, Native American, or Hispanic. Members who request the invitation should vouch for the minority status of the scientist they are inviting and attest that he/she will attend the meeting. Invitees from this bank may present a poster. Associate Members may use an invitation from the bank.
