Upcoming *virtual* Symposium will be held April 14-15, 2021

Please join us for the 26th Annual Wisconsin Symposium on Emotion, held virtually on Wednesday and Thursday, April 14 – 15, 2021

Stay tuned for updates on registration, virtual conferencing platform, and additional details.

As always, we will have an outstanding lineup of leading scientists presenting their research, along with in-depth discussions led by our students. The symposium includes five virtual presentations, breakout discussions, a virtual poster session, and opportunities to connect with a variety of participants from programs across the country. Each year we hear from attendees that this meeting, where experienced scientists make a special effort to reach out to trainees, helps forge enduring collegial relationships. We hope you can join us as we deliver lively discussions on the origins of psychiatric illnesses and provide creative insights into new potential treatments.
