Social neuroendocrinology is a burgeoning area of research aimed at discovering hormone relationships to social behavior. Studies in this area lie at the intersection of social and personality psychology, neuroscience, cognition, evolutionary psychology, and traditional behavioral endocrinology. The Social Neuroendocrinology preconference has been a popular event at SPSP for several years.

This year’s preconference will feature invited talks from a diverse set of top researchers as well as a short-form Data Blitz session for early-career scholars.  Our initial set of speakers includes Modupe Akinola, Keith Welker, Olga Kornienko, Gideon Nave, Heather Caldwell, Mark Van Vugt, and Lisa Welling.

Data Blitz Submissions:

We are now accepting submissions for data-blitz presentations!  

What is a Data-Blitz?

A series of 5-7 minute talks designed to share a current research project and a small bit of the findings.  Think 'elevator pitch' plus 1-2 figures/tables, some synthesis, and big picture take-aways. We strongly encourage upper-level graduate students, postdocs, and early career researchers to apply.

How do I apply?

Send an email to kcasto(at)uoregon.edu with the subject line "DATA BLITZ".  In the body of the email, include the title, authors, and a 250-300 word abstract of the proposed talk.  If you do not receive a confirmation email within 3 days, please re-send.

Will giving a data blitz talk help my career?

Why, yes of course! It's one of the only opportunities to give a talk at a conference for early career researchers; introduce yourself and your work to your fellow SocNeuroEndo colleagues, practice public speaking, and work on conveying your research findings in a succinct manner.  Plus, it's great for the CV. 

Deadline for submissions is January 5th, 2018
