Build your network! Sign up to meet with experienced, senior affective scientists in one-to-one 30-minute meetings or simply with others attending SAS conference.
The 2021 SAS virtual Speed Networking Event offers registrants of the 2021 conference the opportunity to have informal 30-minute one on one virtual meetings with leaders in the field of affective science. During these meetings, mentees have the opportunity to introduce themselves to their mentor and ask research and career related questions.
If you would like to participate as either a mentor or mentee, you must sign up during conference registration by April 1st2021 and provide up to 10 keywords that describe your interests. The SAS Speed Networking Committee will then match mentors and mentees on the basis of these keywords using the neuromatch algorithm. Participants will be informed with match information, including contact details by April 7th 2021. Mentees and mentors can then self-arrange a private 30-minute meeting before, during, or after the conference via any video conferencing platform (e.g., Gather.Town, Zoom, Skype, etc). Meeting spaces will be provided in Gather.Town during the conference.
We will also provide opportunities for interested parties to network with other SAS members beyond the mentor-mentee meetings.
