3-Day Conference Program Format:
- The 2013 conference will have two unique defining elements in addition to our standard peer-reviewed program.
- The conference will feature a Thursday Theme Track running alongside the non-theme sessions on that day. The Theme Track is a full day of programming synchronized around a common topic. With high-energy session formats and speakers spanning a diverse range of perspectives, it will be engaging and informative for all who attend. Our Theme for 2013 will be Bringing I-O Innovations to Life: Making Our Work Stick.
- Friday will contain a host of exciting events including Friday Seminars. Topics include: humanitarian work psychology, preventing bullying in organizations, qualitative research in IO psychology, and multi-level issues.
- The conference will begin and end with plenary sessions and will also include a major invited address.
- There will be an all-conference reception Saturday night to celebrate the conclusion of the conference. We hope you will stay the whole day on Saturday to take advantage of the full three days of learning and networking opportunities, including this closing reception.
- There are six session types for submissions:
- Roundtable/Conversation Hour,
- Master Tutorial,
- Panel Discussion, and
Research, practice, theory, and teaching-oriented content are encouraged under each session type. Each submission should be of high quality and contribute to or advance the field of I-O psychology.
- We particularly encourage debate submissions. Debates are an effective and engaging way to flesh out a topic and subject it to forthright evaluation. Please consider this format for submission.
- When submitting to the conference, submitters will indicate whether the content of their submission is mostly relevant for practitioners, academics, or a mixed audience. This designation will be used to determine the composition of the assigned reviewers.
- An individual cannot be a presenter in more than three program sessions. For clarification, a description of how SIOP defines a “presenter” appears in the section “Rules for Submission” below. Session chairs are included in this rule. Please do NOT submit more than three proposals in which you are a presenter or session chair.
- Because there are always more great submissions than space permits on the SIOP program, you can elect to have your submission automatically considered for presentation at the 2013 APA conference if it is not accepted for presentation at the 2013 SIOP conference. Selecting this option does NOT guarantee that your submission will be accepted at APA, nor does it affect the likelihood of your submission being accepted to the SIOP conference. Please note that by indicating your desire to be considered for the APA program, you are indicating your intention to present your work there, should it be accepted. If you do not want to attend the APA conference if your work is accepted there instead of SIOP, then please do not select this option. If your submission is accepted by APA, they will notify you directly and you will then have the option to be on the program, but you should only select this option if you would indeed be willing to attend and present at the APA conference, if this situation arises.
- SIOP provides an LCD projector, screen, and microphones (2 table microphones, 1 podium microphone, and 1 wired lavaliere microphone). A select number of sessions will be audio recorded for the 2013 Conference DVD. Overhead projectors are not provided. Please note that in order to use the LCD projector you will be required to bring your own laptop.
