International Association of Empirical Aesthetics


08.31.22 - 9.02.22

The congress has ended. Thank you for a great meeting!


The 2022 Biennial Congress of the International Association of Empirical Aesthetics is planned for Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States on August 31 - September 2.


The Penn Center for Neuroaesthetics and the Barnes Foundation welcome you to this in-person event.


The theme of IAEA Philly 2022 is "Connecting Community."

We aim to connect

  1. Our small research community again after a prolonged dispersal

  2. Disciplines that are traditionally kept siloed

  3. To our communities outside the academy


We welcome you to our city. Philadelphia is one of the oldest and the sixth most populous city in the US. Rich in tradition and diversity, Philly is known for its public and institutional art. From murals and mosaics to the collections of the Barnes Foundation and the Philadelphia Museum of Art, you will find many aesthetic experiences to engage your mind.
