The 14th Annual Meeting of the Social & Affective Neuroscience Society will be held virtually from May 4-6, 2022
Due to continued uncertainty, the 14th Annual Meeting of the Social & Affective Neuroscience Society will be held virtually from May 4-6, 2022
The SANS 2022 Annual Meeting will be a vibrant interdisciplinary conference showcasing diverse topics and viewpoints on social and affective neuroscience. Our symposia will cover exciting and timely topics such as computational approaches to social perception, reasoning about the self and others, open science practices, the development of the social brain, and translational perspectives on affective neuroscience.
Abstract submissions are encouraged from students, postdocs, and faculty working on any aspect of human or non-human research that examines the interplay of social or emotional processes and the nervous system. Abstracts (250 words or less) must contain the specific goals of the study, methods used, summary of the results, and conclusions. Most abstract submissions will be assigned to a poster session and several talks will be invited from the abstract submissions. The selection process is determined by the SANS Program Committee.
The abstract submission portal for the 2022 conference of the Social and Affective Neuroscience Society will open later in the fall 2021.
For the 2022 SANS Virtual Conference, registration fees have been reduced to allow access by all. We will also be allowing a Lab Rate for registration.

CompSAN is very excited to announce the inaugural SANS 2022 Naturalistic fMRI Data Analysis Challenge at the 2022 SANS Annual Conference. Naturalistic functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) provides a unique opportunity to study the neural basis of social, cognitive, and affective processing. Data from naturalistic conditions are rich and dynamic, and present both an opportunity and a challenge to analysis methods.
This data challenge provides the chance to demonstrate the application of new algorithms and models to naturalistic fMRI data, in order to shed new light on social and affective neural processing at the intra- and/or inter-subject level. We welcome submissions from all levels of imaging experience, from individual trainees new to naturalistic data to groups well established in this approach.
More details, including how to enter, how to download the data for the challenge, and some tutorials to get you started, can be found here.
