SANS Virtual 2021

The 13th Annual Meeting of the Social & Affective Neuroscience Society will be held virtually from April 28 – May 1, 2021.

The SANS 2021 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 2021 conference of the Social and Affective Neuroscience Society are open.
