SAS 2022 Call for Abstracts

The Society for Affective Science (SAS) is delighted to announce its call
for abstracts to be considered for the 2022 Annual Conference, held in an
all-virtual format between March 30th – April 2nd, 2022. This year’s
extended format aims to facilitate international participation and account
for schedule adjustments due to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic. Already
confirmed speakers include Lisa Feldman Barrett, Wendy Berry Mendes, Batja
Mesquita, Desmond Ong, and Amitai Shenhav.

Advancing Interdisciplinary Science

In line with our goal to facilitate interdisciplinarity, we welcome
submissions from across the domain of affective science including
anthropology, business, computer science, cultural studies, economics,
education, geography, history, integrative medicine, law, linguistics,
literature, neuroscience, philosophy, political science, psychiatry,
psychology, public health, sociology, theater, and more.

Abstract Submissions

IMPORTANT: Abstracts are changing this year!


   All single presenter submissions (posters and flash talks, described
   below) will require a 1600-character abstract for evaluation and a brief
   400-character summary for the conference program.

   Symposia submissions (described below) will require individual
   1600-character abstracts of each talk for evaluation and brief
   400-character summaries for the conference program, as well as a single
   symposium overview abstract of 1600-characters for evaluation and a brief
   400-character summary of the session.

   Note: All character counts include spaces and indicate the maximum
   length. Detailed abstract submission instructions will be posted to the

   Authors of highly-ranked submissions may be invited to submit an
   optional extended abstract, to be considered for publication in a
   supplement of our journal Affective Science. IMPORTANT: This does NOT
   preclude the work from being submitted/published as a full paper in any
   scientific outlet.


     FOUR submission types:

   1. Poster: New Idea - Showcasing a new research idea, complete with
   planned experimental designs and analysis approach(es). Data are not
   required, but pilot data for proof of concept are welcome. Work already
   pre-registered in another platform is admissible. New theoretical
   contributions are also welcome in this category.

   1. Poster: New Results - Showcasing the latest new findings in affective
   science based on quantitative and/or qualitative data collected and
   analyzed. We welcome and encourage preliminary work!

   1. Thematic Flash Talk - Showcasing the latest findings based on
   quantitative and/or qualitative data already collected and analyzed or new
   theoretical contributions in affective science.

   1. Symposium - Set of talks providing an in-depth perspective on
   individual research areas/topics within affective science. Sessions can be
   comprised of 3 talks with a discussant or 4 talks without a discussant. All
   symposia must be chaired. Symposia will be part of SAS for the first
   time in 2022!

   - No fee to submit an abstract. The fee structure for conference
   registration will be announced on the website
   by mid-October 2021.

We encourage submissions from authors at all career stages.
