Abstract Submission Guidelines:

  • The abstracts must be submitted electronically via the CTMSS website online submission form.
  • If submitting more than one abstract, please submit them separately.
  • Membership or registration for the annual meeting is not required at the time of submitting the abstract. For each abstract, however, there needs to be a unique presenter (i.e., one registered author who will present at the annual meeting).
  • Multiple submissions are allowed; however, presenters and collaborative groups should combine multiple submissions when possible.
  • Multiple submissions that pertain to highly related aspects of the same study are discouraged and may lead to rejection.
  • Abstracts can be submitted for any of the following categories:
    • Trainee Research: Any submission by a trainee of any level or background according to CTMSS membership definition of a Trainee.
    • Prospective Research: Any data outcomes derived from prospective studies in humans (examples include: randomization to different treatment arms or different augmentations).
    • Retrospective Research: Any submission highlighting outcomes derived from capture of naturalistic data in a clinical setting.
    • Translational Research: Any submission not directly relating to clinical outcomes, but which may provide foundational evidence for future clinical innovation. (examples include: neuroimaging or electroencephalography studies in humans, or studies conducted in model systems).

For First Call Submissions Only Top 4 Abstracts Awards:
Abstracts should contain original material relevant to the field of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation. Each category (Trainee, Prospective, Retrospective, Translational) will receive a 2024 CTMSS Top Abstract Award.

Abstracts will be judged by a panel of CTMSS members and finalists will be chosen based on the criteria below, along with compliance with submission guidelines and instructions, scientific merit, originality, quality of research methodology, and clinical impact.

Top abstract winners will be acknowledged as a “2024 CTMSS Top Abstract Winner” at the 2024 CTMSS Annual Meeting in London, United Kingdom, where they will be invited to present a brief (10-15 minute) oral presentation and attend the poster presentation.
