With interpersonal disagreement and societal polarization rising, understanding people’s opinions and the factors that affect them has never been more critical. In the Attitudes and Social Influence preconference, a range of experts will describe their cutting-edge research on this topic. Including both speakers and panelists, this preconference will cover the cognitive structure, motivational processes, and the latest interventions designed to understand and change people’s evaluations and behavior. This year’s preconference will include talks that challenge conventional wisdom in this area, a data blitz on up-and-coming research, and the opportunity to learn and discuss some of the most fundamental and vital research for today’s society. As one of the longest-standing preconferences, space is limited, so sign up soon.
