Welcome to Advances in Motor Learning & Motor Control 2023

Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C., Room 140
Friday November 10th, from 12pm- 7:00pm.

This symposium provides an annual forum for presenting the best new work in motor control and motor learning, including studies of human motor behavior, imaging, motor neurophysiology, and computational modeling.

Our program typically consists of 10 talks selected from peer-reviewed submitted abstracts, and 3 invited plenary talks. Submitted abstracts were peer reviewed by our program committee and the top 11 reviewed abstracts will be presented at the meeting.

We look forward to seeing you in Washington, D.C.!

Maurice Smith, Gelsy Torres-Oviedo, Sam McDougle & Kurt Thoroughman (co-chairs)

Detailed submission instructions:

There are no submission fees. The acceptance rate for talks has historically been around 30%. The abstract submission deadline for MLMC 2024 will be late September.

Abstract submission consists of a 2-page PDF (1 page of text & a 2nd page primarily of figures and their captions). The main text should be ≥ 11pt with a line spacing of ≥ 1, and figure captions should be ≥ 9pt. Successful abstracts from previous years are available here. See the link at the bottom of this page to submit an abstract.

Submissions are competitively peer reviewed by our program committee of over 40 leading experts in motor control and motor learning, and reviewer comments will be provided. The top submissions will be accepted for 22-minute oral presentations (6 minutes of which is reserved for questions). If you are a faculty member willing to review about 5 abstracts, and would like to join the program committee for 2024, please send a message to
