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 talks on the role of pleasure, rewards, and positive emotions in motivation and behavior regulation, as well as brief talks about motivation from different social psychological perspectives. Early career researchers will have the opportunity to submit a data blitz talk as well as posters. We will close with a panel of motivation scholars who will share and discuss their perspective on the question: “Is pleasure the problem—or part of the solution?"
