2022 Meeting of the Society for the Science of Motivation: Call for Submissions

The Society for the Science of Motivation (SSM) is inviting proposals for symposia, individual talks, and posters to be presented at the 14th Annual Meeting. The meeting will be held in-person on Thursday May 26th, 2022, in advance of the Annual Convention of the Association for Psychological Science (APS) in Chicago, IL. Both the SSM and APS meetings will be held in the Hyatt Regency Chicago.

We are pleased to feature a keynote address by Dolores Albarracín (University of Pennsylvania), a presidential address by Ruud Custers (Utrecht University), and a President’s Symposium featuring on-site presentations from Alex Todorov (University of Chicago), Emily Balcetis (New York University), and Gordon Moskowitz (Lehigh University).

The Society for the Science of Motivation is an international, interdisciplinary society for researchers interested in motivation (broadly defined). Its mission is to encourage inquiry into all aspects of motivation from a variety of disciplines and perspectives, and to facilitate the dissemination of findings to a broad scientific audience. The annual meeting provides a forum for the exchange of scientific information, fosters discussion of new ideas and findings on motivation, and encourages collaboration in research.

Submissions may be in the form of symposia, individual talks, or poster presentations. Please use this link to submit your work:

  • Submission deadline for symposia and individual talks: February 1, 2022
  • Submission deadline for posters: February 15th, 2022

Registration will open in late January. Please spread the word. We look forward to seeing you in Chicago!
