Dear Colleagues,

I hope this message finds you well in these uncertain times!

I am writing to you regarding the Society for Affective Science (SAS) and
its annual meeting, which will be held in an all-virtual format between
April 15-30, 2021.

On behalf of the SAS membership and outreach committee, I encourage you and
your trainees (postdocs, students, etc.) to attend. My collaborators and I
have found SAS to be an excellent venue for presenting research and the
interdisciplinary nature of the program to be uniquely beneficial.

Below, I outline exciting highlights from the upcoming meeting and
opportunities for you and your trainees to submit abstracts for a
pre-recorded virtual presentation.

Please let me know if you have any questions. I hope you will join us at
the 2021 SAS virtual meeting!

All the best,

Jolie Wormwood
