Symposia Abstract Submissions

Symposia are thematically organized sessions that will be held during the main portion of the conference.

Symposia sessions will include 15-minute presentations by up to 5 individual speakers that offer unique perspectives on a specific central theme, followed by a moderated scientific exchange involving the audience. Topics broadly related to the electrophysiology and kinesiology of movement control, or the following meeting themes will be considered.

Symposia submissions are now open!

Note: Authors in accepted symposia proposals will be required to submit an online form that includes the authors, title, and abstract for each talk within the symposium following notification of acceptance.

The deadline to submit your symposia abstract is November 1, 2021.
