	Happiness and Well-Being
Location: Room TBD  |  8:00 AM - 4:30 PM

The 7th Annual Happiness and Well-Being Preconference will continue its successful tradition of showcasing cutting-edge work in the science of well-being across a variety of perspectives. This event will offer a mix of speakers and discussions focusing on the scientific study of happiness and well-being as well as structured and unstructured networking opportunities. There will be experts in well-being science invited to share their latest work and discuss future directions for the field. Ample time will be allocated for audience questions and discussions around the invited speakers’ work and claims. Both graduate and undergraduate students will have the opportunity to feature their work in data blitzes and poster sessions. Coffee breaks will offer space to network with fellow well-being researchers and practitioners. During lunchtime, attendees will have the opportunity to further connect with speakers at mentorship tables, where they can engage in conversations regarding various well-being content areas, methodological approaches, and professional development issues. Invited talks, data blitzes, and poster sessions will contain novel theoretical contributions, new research methodologies, and cutting-edge applications. A wide variety of topics focusing on the latest advances in the dynamic field of happiness and well-being will be on display. Please join us for another year of happiness and well-being at SPSP 2020.

Please submit your presentation proposals below for the SPSP 2020 Happiness and Well-being Preconference.

We are only accepting Posters and Data Blitzes; we are NOT accepting Single Presenter Talks or Teaching Blitzes. You may only submit ONE first author proposal. If you would like your data blitz proposal to be considered for a poster in the event that it is not accepted for a data blitz, then you should select BOTH poster and data blitz on the submission portal.

Submissions will be accepted until November 15, 2019, after which the review process will begin. Be sure to provide enough details about your study in the Abstract section (e.g., sample size, study design, measurement method, data analysis, empirical findings) such that the proposal can be effectively reviewed.

If you have any questions about submissions, please email the preconference organizers David Disabato (ddisab01@gmail.com) and Samantha Heintzelman ( samantha.heintzelman@rutgers.edu ).
