Affective processes are inherently dynamic, from both first and second person perspectives. How we perceive and respond to the expression of emotion in others, and how we experience emotion ourselves are time-dependent, dynamic processes. Yet, a substantial majority of emotion research ignores the temporal aspects of affective processes. This meeting will focus on empirical approaches to study the temporal aspects of affective processes, using multiple techniques to measure behaviour and brain activity.

The first day will showcase keynote lectures from leading researchers who have addressed these topics from a range of different perspectives. A small selection of talks will be chosen from submissions from junior researchers.

The second day will have a more methodological focus, with masterclasses on specific techniques used in the study of temporal aspects of affective processing.

As with all previous Reading Emotions meetings, this too is aimed at emotion researchers at all levels, and will prioritise interactions among junior and senior researchers. In order to maximise such interactions, the total number of attendees will be capped, and hence registering early is strongly recommended. Links and further details on registration and abstract submission are provided below the list of speakers.
