The Society for Affective Science (SAS) is pleased to announce its call for submissions of abstracts to be considered for poster and thematic flash talk presentations at its 2019 Annual Conference. We welcome abstract submissions that describe new research within the domain of affective science. In line with our goal to facilitate interdisciplinary advances, we welcome submissions from affective scientists in any discipline (e.g., anthropology, business, computer science, cultural studies, economics, education, geography, history, integrative medicine, law, linguistics, literature, neuroscience, philosophy, political science, psychiatry, psychology, public health, sociology, theatre), working on a broad range of topics using a variety of measures.

The abstract submission portal will open on Friday, October 5, 2018. All abstracts will be evaluated for poster and flash talk presentations; all other oral presentations are by invitation. Abstracts must be submitted by Friday, November 9, 2018 at 11:59 p.m. Baker Island Time (BIT; UTC-12) to be considered for inclusion in the program. Please review the abstract submission formats, general instructions, and form instructions below carefully.

Abstract Guidelines & Submissions

All abstracts will be evaluated for scholarly merit by an interdisciplinary group of SAS Program Committee members using blind peer review. Reviewers will not review abstracts where there is a known conflict of interest. Abstracts with trainees (i.e., postdoctoral fellow, graduate student, post-baccalaureate, undergraduate student) as first author will be considered for an award based on further in-person evaluation at the conference. Awards will be announced at the conference during the closing ceremony.

All presenters must register and pay to attend the meeting. Presenters must be the first author on the submitted abstract. Notification of acceptance or rejection of abstracts will be e-mailed to the corresponding author by Friday, January 11, 2019. Author substitutions will be handled on a case-by-case basis. Please contact Rachael Jack, Ph.D., at in this instance.
