This preconference will feature cutting-edge research in motivation science and its applications. The aim is to showcase the important work being done on motivation, goal pursuit, and self-regulation—and to provide networking, mentoring, and presentation opportunities to early-career scholars. The line-up includes invited speakers as well as symposium speakers, who will give talks about motivation from different social psychological perspectives, on theoretical as well applied topics. Early career researchers will have the opportunity to submit symposium talks as well as posters. A panel of motivation scholars will discuss unresolved questions in motivation science, including unexplored topics and underlying ‘big questions’ in the field.
