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 – CLOSED

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, 2023.

Submission Guidelines

To submit a proposal, please read and adhere to the submission guidelines below:

General Information

  • Prepare to enter the contact name, affiliation/institution name, and email address for each of the symposia presenters. Please note: the symposium organizer must be an ISEK member in good standing
  • Prepare a symposium title (max 255 character limit including spaces – approximately 40 words)
  • x1 Keyword to describe the main theme/topic of your submission
  • General abstract summary (see below for more details)
  • Indicate who will be the moderator of this exchange

General abstract Summary

    • Background, aims, and relevance
    • Justification for why the proposed topic is novel
    • Brief outline of the proposed format for a moderated, interactive scientific exchange with the audience

Editing your submission:
Please note that once you officially submit your abstract you can no longer make any edits. It is therefore advised that you save your abstract in a draft format until you are confident that all amendments / changes have been carried out.

(If accepted, each symposium presenter will be required to submit an individual abstract for their presentation by the general submission deadline of December 18, 2023)
