View Full Version : SFN Computational Motor Control Symposium, Nov 7

Symposium at the Annual Society for Neuroscience Meeting

Friday, November 7, 2003, 2:00 PM - 10:20 PM
Room 288-290, Morial Convention Center, New Orleans

Computational modeling is having a significant impact on the field of
motor control. Given the interest in the 2002 symposium we decided to
organize a second symposium with the same topic and format. The goal is
to look beyond empirical observations, and focus on the deeper
principles of motor function underlying those observations. The program
will include 3 invited and 10 contributed talks.

Contributed talks:

We invite extended abstract submissions - up to one page of text
(minimum 11 point font, 1" margins) and an optional second page with
figures and references; in PDF (preferred), MS Word, Postscript, or
plain text format. Each abstract will be reviewed and ranked by 3
referees, and the top 10 abstracts will be selected for presentation.
Any work that has a substantial theoretical component and is relevant to
motor control will be considered. While formal ideas expressed as
computational models are preferred, intuitive ideas that await
formalization are also welcome. We encourage presentations by the
researchers who were most directly involved in the work being submitted.

Deadline for abstract submission: September 20, 2003

The online submission page will be available soon, see
Registration will be onsite at the day of the meeting. We expect the
registration costs to be quite modest.

The abstracts from the previous (2002) symposium are available at:

Emo Todorov, UCSD
Reza Shadmehr, JHU
