Tenā koutou,

A huge thank you, a grand “shout out”, to the 200 attendees from 22 countries who attended Progress in Motor Control XIII. We trust you learned a lot and enjoyed the conference as much as we did. A reminder that your registration fee included a two-year membership to the International Society of Motor Control

Thank you to our amazing twenty-seven invited speakers who took on the challenge of broadcasting live at all hours of the day and night. It was exciting to see and hear from a talented cohort of exciting early career motor control scientists. The future of motor control and the legacy of Bernstein is in good hands. We also thank our group of excellent session chairs for their deft and professional management by remote control.

Congratulations to Tamar Flash, recipient of the Bernstein Prize and Daniele Piscitelli who received the inaugural ISMC Early Career Investigator Award. We toasted your achievements virtually and wish you every success in the future.

We acknowledge President Mindy Levin and the ISMC Board for accepting our bid to host the conference and for their continued support through trying times. This would not have been possible without generous support from our sponsors: 100% Pure NZ, Neurological Foundation of New Zealand, University of Auckland Centre for Brain Research and the Department of Exercise Sciences.

We also express our sincere appreciation to the University of Auckland Events Services Team, especially Amelia Lowe and Ashley Astells, for encouraging us to proceed with a virtual conference and for providing outstanding advice and support.

Three reminders:

  • You can access all presentations from the conference until 01 October 2021 using your Virtual Conference Platform login
  • Check the ISMC website for information about the 2023 Progress in Motor Control conference
  • Take a moment to celebrate World Motor Control Day on Sept 9th

Noho ora mai,

(Stay well, look after yourself, good bye)
