Commitment to transparency in conference pricing. SAS is fully committed to transparency in conference pricing. SAS is committed to keeping our conferences as affordable as possible, especially for trainees, while providing quality opportunities for attendees to showcase their work, interact with others, and build their network. To deliver on our promise to the SAS community, our high-quality virtual conference platform and program carries costs both similar and different to those of in-person conferences: (1) the employment of a year-round administrative team that enables SAS to plan and conduct an annual conference, which upholds the value of paid labor, and reduces the need to rely on volunteerism of faculty and trainees, (2) expenses directly related to the conference, including purchasing specialized software and additional staffing for virtual content. To continue our mission of supporting the growing fields of affective science now and in the future, SAS is striving to maintain both conference accessibility (including by offering funding opportunities for economic hardship) and the fiscal health of the society.
