Speed Networking Event
Saturday, March 23, 2019
The Speed Networking Event will provide attendees the opportunity to interact with several leaders in the field of affective science, briefly and in an informal setting. Each networking event attendee will get to meet one-on-one with several of these mentors. This meeting will give mentees an opportunity to introduce themselves and ask the mentor questions related to their research, career advice, or any other burning questions they have. Each of these meetings will last around five minutes, after which mentees will rotate to meet with another host. Faculty and industry hosts will be announced at a later time. Registration, including a fee, is required to attend this event. Attendance is limited. You can register for this event using the main conference registration system. Contact Amitai Shenhav, Ph.D., at email@example.com, with inquiries related to the Speed Networking Lunch event.

In affective science, our questions (”the what”) and methods (”the how”) are deeply intertwined. The Methods Event offers an opportunity to focus on the “how” in a structured small-group setting. Discussion leaders will draw on their expertise to introduce and summarize selected methodologies, and then will facilitate dialogue within the small group. Topics range from tools used in the laboratory to those used in the field. They will include well-established methods and experimental innovations. The Methods Event is meant to help you to expand, refine, or rethink your methodological toolkit, whatever your career stage. A full list of topics and hosts for the Methods Event will be announced at a later date. Registration, including a fee, is required to attend this event. Attendance is limited to ten people per table, including the host. You can register for this event using the main conference registration system.
