The 2019 Society for Affective Science conference will take place at the Westin Boston Waterfront Hotel from March 21 to March 23, 2019. The registration system for the main conference and other conference events will open in mid November.
This year’s invited program includes new and exciting interdisciplinary conversations in affective science. An opening session “Trajectories, Transitions, and Turning Points” features Phoebe Ellsworth, Valeria Gazzola, and Bob Levenson describing experiences, events, and findings that were key transitions points in their research programs and careers. The Presidential Symposium will be devoted to research on culture, ethnicity, and emotion. This year’s program will also feature a symposium on emotion and health jointly sponsored by SAS and the American Psychosomatic Society called “The Vital Role of Affective Science in Medicine” featuring Lauren Atlas, Peter Gianaros, and Richard Lane.
We will also continue to showcase other exciting formats, such as TED-style talks, salons, methods and speed networking events, flash talks, poster spotlights, and interactive poster sessions. Come see other invited speakers, including Marc Brackett, Cynthia Breazeal, Alan Fiske, Jenn Lerner, Tali Sharot, and invited flash-talk speakers who will present groundbreaking research representing a wide range of affective science! There are also four exciting preconferences that will be held March 21.
