Geneva hosts the Swiss Centre for Affective Sciences which is one of 20 National Centres of Competence in Research (NCCR) established by the Swiss federal government. With the University of Geneva as its home institution, the Centre coordinates collaborative research by psychologists, neuroscientists, philosophers, historians, economists, social scientists, and legal scholars. The Centre's research program is structured around three aspects of emotions: emotions as complex multi-faceted reactions to our surroundings, emotions as disruptive states requiring control and regulation, and emotions as themselves a regulating force in society. Consequently the individual research projects are organised around three domains of research related to these aspects :

  • emotion elicitation and perception,
  • emotion regulation,
  • and social functions of emotions.

The conference is supported by the Rectorate, the "Commission Administrative" and the Faculty of Humanities of the University of Geneva, the Société Académique (Geneva), the Marie Gretler Foundation (Zurich), the Swiss Academy of Social Sciences and Humanities (ASSH/SAGW), Blackwell Publishing and the Conférence Universitaire de la Suisse Occidentale.
