- Presidential Symposium on "Leveraging Digital Technologies in Neurology"
- Derek Denny-Brown Young Neurological Scholar Symposium featuring presentations from the 2020 Derek Denny-Brown awardees, the Wolfe Neuropathy Research Prize and the Grass Foundation - ANA Award in Neuroscience recipients
- Special Interest Group (SIG) sessions including Global Neurology, Traumatic Brain Injury, and Neurogenetics and SIG-specific networking opportunities
- Interactive workshops spotlighting advances across the full spectrum of neurologic subspecialties
- Emerging Scholar Lectures, a new addition this year focused on providing a platform for junior and early career investigator presentations
