The sixth annual Society for Affective Science Positive Emotions Preconference will be held Thursday, March 21, 2019 at the Westin Boston Waterfront Hotel (also the venue for the main conference). We hope you'll join us!

The preconference will feature state-of-the-art research on positive emotions and is designed to bring researchers together from a variety of fields to advance the science of positive emotions using a data-centric approach. We encourage thinking, discussing, and integrating, across disciplines and feature speakers that range across research lab traditions, to promote diversity in positive emotion research.
