The SPSP Emotion Preconference is for psychologists interested in affective science and has been held every year since 2006. Last year's Emotion Preconference registered 140+ attendees.
This year's program focuses on showcasing cutting edge research on a diverse range of topics. A significant portion of our programming will be devoted to submitted short talks (see below for information on submission). The program will also feature a poster session and a lineup of invited speakers:
The keynote address will be delivered by Barbara Fredrickson (UNC Chapel Hill).
Talk and poster abstracts are due by November 20th, 2019. Decisions will be emailed out by December 6th. There is no fee for submitting an abstract. You are welcome to submit an abstract prior to registering for the preconference, but all poster and talk presenters will need to register for the preconference. (We are unable to hold slots for presenters, so please plan to register shortly after decisions are delivered.)
We are excited to have room in the schedule for multiple talks (6-15 minutes in length) selected from among the top-rated abstracts submitted! While most abstracts will be selected for poster presentations, if you are interested in being considered for a talk, you can indicate this on the abstract submission page. We encourage trainees and faculty alike to submit abstracts and look forward to adding additional speakers and poster presenters to the schedule.
