SAS was founded in 2012 as a professional environment for scientists interested in affective phenomena in all their many forms. The society’s third conference will feature a presidential symposium, invited addresses, TED-style talks, flash talks, salons, method lunches, and poster sessions. In addition, SAS is introducing several new formats, including member-initiated thematic flash talks, a speed networking lunch, discussions about important issues in the field, and no-host thematic dinners.
Preconference workshops to be held March 17 include “Positive Emotions,” organized by psychological scientist Sara Algoe (University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill), and “Brain Camp,” taught by APS Past Board Member Lisa Feldman Barrett (Northeastern University).
