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 30
March - 2 April 2022.
On behalf of the SAS membership and outreach committee, we encourage you
and your trainees to attend. SAS is an excellent venue for learning about
what’s new in affective science and presenting research. The
interdisciplinary nature of the program is uniquely beneficial.
Below are exciting highlights of the upcoming meeting and opportunities for
you and your trainees to submit abstracts for a virtual presentation. We
invite submissions of your research and ideas.
Please let me know if you have any questions. I hope you will join us at
the 2022 SAS virtual meeting!
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.
IMPORTANT: Abstracts are changing this year!
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 another
FOUR submission types:
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.
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!
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.
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!
We encourage submissions from authors at all career stages.
Abstracts must be submitted by Monday, November 22nd, 2021 at 11:59 p.m.
Baker Island Time (BIT; UTC-12 — last time zone on earth) to be considered
for inclusion in the program.
Submission Review Process
Abstracts will be evaluated based on scholarly merit by a double-blind peer
review process with our Abstract Review Board. Notification of acceptance
or rejection of abstracts will be e-mailed to the corresponding author by
the end of January 2022. Presenters must be the corresponding author on the
submitted abstract. All presenters must register and pay to attend the
Poster and Flash Talk abstracts with trainees (i.e., postdoctoral fellow,
graduate student, post-baccalaureate, undergraduate student) as the
presenting author will be considered for an award, which will be announced
at the conference during the closing ceremony.
