SAS 2023 Preconfernces

This year, SAS is hosting 3 preconferences (Positive Emotions, Intergroup Emotions, and Emotion Regulation on March 30th, 2023. Both the Positive Emotions and Intergroup Emotions preconference are inviting Flash Talk and Poster submissions. The Emotion Regulation preconference will only include invited presentations.

Positive Emotions Preconference

Chairs:
Jia Wei Zhang, Ph.D., University of Memphis
Adrienne Wood, Ph.D., University of Virginia
Hooria Jazaieri, Ph.D., Santa Clara University

This in-person preconference will feature the latest interdisciplinary research on positive affect. The day will include 6 invited and 7 flash talks that explore a wide range of research related to positive emotions in educational, clinical, social, organizational, consumer, and cross-cultural contexts. Additionally, the preconference will include an interactive poster session and conclude with a final session on the future of positive emotion research.

Submission Information:
Attendees can submit abstracts to present a flash talk or a poster, with the chance to win a Best Poster or Best Flash Talk award. There will be opportunities to socialize and meet fellow positive affective scientists, including during the planned networking breaks and in-person poster session.

Intergroup Emotions Preconference:
Emotions in a Political World

Chair:
Sa-kiera Hudson, Ph.D., University of California Berkeley

In this preconference, we will focus on the role of emotions in political processes, including political polarization, voting, collective action, political violence, and upholding democracy. With the political turmoil that has risen in the last decade across the world, understanding the impact that emotions have on political processes is paramount.

Submission Information:

Attendees can submit abstracts to present a flash talk or a poster. One early career researcher (e.g., advanced graduate student, postdoc, or assistant professor) with a theme-consistent submission will win the inaugural SAS Intergroup Preconference Spotlight Award, receive complementary preconference registration, and be invited to present a full-length talk.

Emotion Regulation Preconference

Chairs:
Brett Ford, University of Toronto
James Gross, Stanford University
Gal Sheppes, Tel Aviv University

The Emotion Regulation Pre-Conference will feature emotion regulation research from various disciplines and topics, consider emotion regulation from different perspectives, and share exciting new findings and methods. It will feature a range of formats from short talks to panel discussions to breakout groups. Our goal is to have fun, build connections among those interested in emotion regulation (faculty, post-docs, students), and share ideas about new directions in emotion regulation research.

Submission Information:

All presentations will be invited.
