The submissions to these sessions are limited to students who:

- Have earned a bachelor’s degree in a 3-year program and are currently in their first year of study in a program leading to a master’s degree. (Students studying in European universities may fall into this category).Those who already have an abstract accepted for VSS 2023 are not eligible.
Space is limited. The window for submissions will open on March 1 and submissions will be accepted through March 31. Presenters will be informed of acceptance by April 11
You must be a current student member (for 2023) to submit an abstract.
VSS welcomes and encourages submissions from a diverse group of eligible students across the globe. To help accomplish this goal we are asking that you share this information with any programs within your institutions that sponsor or promote research for undergraduate students. For details and to submit an abstract, go to Undergraduate Just-In-time Poster Submission Guidelines.
Abstracts are limited to 300 words. This does not include title, authors, and affiliations. Additional space is provided for funding acknowledgments and for declaration of commercial interests and conflicts.
Your abstract should consist of an introduction, methods and results sections, and a conclusion. It is not required that the sections be explicitly labeled as such. It is, however, important that each abstract contains sufficiently detailed descriptions of the methods and the results. Please do not submit an abstract of work that you are planning to do or work without sufficient results to reach a clear conclusion. Such abstracts will not be accepted.
Per the VSS Disclosure of Conflict of Interest Policy, authors must reveal any commercial interests or other potential conflicts of interest that they have related to the work described. Any conflicts of interest must be declared on your poster or talk slides.
Please complete your submission carefully. All abstracts must be in final form. Abstracts are not proofread or corrected in any way prior to publication. Typos and other errors cannot be corrected after the deadline. You may edit your abstract as much as you like until the submission deadline.
Given the just-in-time deadline, some aspects will differ from regular VSS submissions. Submissions will be reviewed by members of the VSS Board of Directors and designates. Accepted abstracts will appear in the VSS 2023 program, but unlike submissions accepted following the December review, “Just-In-Time” abstracts will not appear in the Journal of Vision.
