8th Asia-Pacific Symposium on Emotions in Worklife

The Asia Pacific Symposium on Emotions in Worklife (APSEW) is now an annual event organised as part of the ANZAM Emotion and Cognition Special Interest Group (EAC SIG) development.

This year, the 8th symposium is being hosted and sponsored by the Melbourne Business School, Melbourne, Australia. The symposium is a day-long, meeting of scholars interested in the study of emotions in work.

The format of the symposium will include a keynote address by Professor Karen Jehn, an internationally renowned scholar, and will feature paper presentations as well as roundtable sessions to discuss poster presentations. Morning/afternoon tea and lunch will be provided to all participants, and the conference will conclude with a dinner at the Corkman Irish Pub near Melbourne Business School. We anticipate a full program from 9 am to 5 pm, or later if you wish to stay on for dinner.

There is no registration fee for attending the symposium. (If you attend the dinner, this will be at your expense and will need to be paid for separately.)
