Call for Papers
PTC/MW 2009 Student Presentations
Outstanding Student Contribution to the Science and Practice of I-O Psychology
Deadline for Submissions: Friday, May 8, 2009
In the spirit of staying up to date with the research literature and promoting scientist-practitioner thinking, Personnel Testing Council of Metropolitan Washington, D.C. (PTC/MW) annually invites graduate students to submit research for a luncheon presentation. This year’s winner(s) will receive an award of $250, a free one year student membership to PTC/MW, and present at our July luncheon (in addition to any travel costs for the presentation).
Students may submit a completed study or preliminary results of a study in progress. The topic areas that PTC/MW members are generally interested in include but are not limited to the following:
• Employee recruitment and selection
• Employment testing legal issues
• Performance appraisal and performance management
• Uses of statistical techniques to solve business problems
• Job analysis
• Testing feedback programs
• Test preparation programs
• Organizational Culture
• Teamwork/Group Dynamics
• Organizational development topics (e.g., impact of work-life programs, diversity-oriented research, etc.)
Presentation ideas should be submitted in the form of a 1,000 word (maximum) research summary that includes evidence that data have been collected and will be analyzed by the time of presentation. The presentation format at the luncheon will be similar to that used for the IO/OB and SIOP conferences. Submissions will be judged based on the merit of research as well as fit with PTC/MW topic areas of interest. Submissions are due COB Friday, May 8, 2009.
Please e-mail the research summary with your name, contact information, and graduate program to PTC/MW Vice President Eric Dunleavy at firstname.lastname@example.org and include “PTC/MW Student Presentation” in the subject line. Decisions and an announcement of the winner(s) will be made by the end of May.
