Conference Program Format

The conference will formally begin with an Opening Plenary session featuring Fred Oswald, the current SIOP President, and will conclude with an invited speaker address at the Closing Plenary session.

There are eight session types for submissions: (a) Debate, (b) Symposium, (c) Roundtable/Conversation Hour, (d) Master Tutorial, (e) Panel Discussion, (f) Poster, (g) Alternative Session Type with Presenters (No Authorship Order), and (h) Alternative Session Type with Multiple Papers. Across all session types, we particularly encourage submissions of sessions that are designed to maximize novelty, spontaneity, interactivity, and audience engagement. We also encourage submission of 50 minute sessions. In particular, we encourage greater use of the alternative session formats and debates. Alternative sessions allow for a high degree of creativity/innovation and audience engagement, and tend to be among the highest rated session formats each year.

The SIOP program will include several “tracks” that serve as mini-conferences within the broader conference. We will continue to offer an HR generalist track that will outline sessions that may be of interest to conference attendees who hold HR generalist and related positions. In addition, a track focused on presenting reproducible research will highlight presenters who contribute and discuss Reproducible Research (RR) in their sessions. Employed by many other professional societies, reproducibility enables our I-O community to learn about new research and analysis techniques. To find out how to indicate that your session includes reproducible research, see the Proposal Format Requirements section.

NEW! For SIOP 2018, we are encouraging submissions that highlight multidisciplinary approaches to science for a smarter workforce. These sessions may feature collaborations, research initiatives, and unique projects that bring together expertise from multiple disciplines beyond I-O (e.g., data science, computer science, engineering, economics, education, medicine).
