New Session Format for SIOP 2004: 
Community of Interests Sessions

Donald Truxillo
Rob Ployhart

We want to give everyone a heads-up about an exciting new session format at the 2004 SIOP conference in Chicago, the Community of Interests Session. 

The purpose of these 50-minute sessions is to provide an informal opportunity for members with an interest in particular research or practice topics to connect with other likeminded people. Such connections could lead to research collaborations, professional connections, or just lively discussion.

There will be 16 Community of Interests sessions at the 2004 conference. Sessions will be held in the Exhibit Hall, and they will be unstructuredthe point is to provide a venue for people to meet and get to know one another. The sessions will therefore be interactive and provide an opportunity to talk with others about a particular topic. If you are a practitioner looking for information about current research or practice, an academic seeking collaboration for research, or a graduate student wanting to get some feedback on a thesis topic, this is the place to do it! While seating and writing materials will be provided, there will be no facilitator.

The list of topics for this years sessions are: 

  • Sexual Harassment 
  • Emerging Leadership Theories
  • Multilevel Methods
  • Situational Judgment Methods
  • Emotions
  • Diversity
  • Counterproductive Work Behaviors
  • Adaptability
  • Team Performance
  • Organizational Justice
  • Occupational Health Psychology
  • High-Tech Recruitment and Selection
  • Individual Assessment
  • Organizational Change/Change Management
  • Cross-Cultural Issues in I-O
  • Retirement 

Look for session times in the conference program. If these sessions are successful, the plan is to add new topics in 2005.
