A new society has been formed -- The Society for Affective Science. Its mission is to foster basic and applied research in the variety of fields that study affect, broadly defined.

Our inaugural conference will be April 24-26, 2014 in Washington DC. This will be a student-friendly, open, and theoretically / methodologically diverse conference that will provide a forum for cross-cutting work in emotion, stress, and many of the other topics that fall under the broad umbrella of affective science.
For more information, and to get early-bird registration rates, see the society website:
