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.

The Call for Symposia proposals is now open.

Note: Symposium leaders for accepted proposals will be required to submit an online form that includes the author, title, and abstract for each talk within the symposium.

The deadline to submit your symposia abstract is December 1, 2019.
