About the Conference

We are happy to announce that the International Society for Research on Emotion (ISRE) conference will take place in-person on 17 to 20 July 2024 in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

ISRE2024 will take place on the main campus of Queen’s University Belfast: in the Whitla Hall, the Great Hall, and the Peter Froggatt Centre (see location for more details).

The ISRE conference is an exciting opportunity to meet international colleagues, present your work, and stay up-to-date with the latest developments in emotion research. ISRE members study emotions from a wide range of disciplines including affective computing, anthropology, art and design, education, history, linguistics, neuroscience, philosophy, psychology and sociology.
