Create a meaningful and special first ever 3-day conference program for our members
  • 1301 submissions reviewed (record number)
  • Close to 5000 reviews processed (record number)
  • Cut-off scores determined. Decisions made on submissions. Acceptance rates very similar to last year (greater rejection rate for symp/forum, lower rejection rate for posters). Details are forthcoming.
  • Poster and interactive poster batches created
  • Accepted submissions scheduled to minimize content conflicts and avoid first author conflicts
  • Decision letters distributed
  • Answering member questions. All went quite smoothly. 
  • Presenter guidelines revised
  • EC discretionary track created and scheduled
  • Award winners scheduled
  • Scheduling process highly thematic. Should be an easier program to navigate for attendees.
  • Theme tracks designed and scheduled
    • Thursday Theme: Individual-Organizational Health. Industrial and Organizational Psychology has a long history of being concerned with individual well-being in terms of performance and attitudes toward the job and organization. However, we have only recently begun to broaden our perspectives on well-being to examine individual and organizational health.  To highlight the importance and challenges of individual and organizational health, the Thursday Theme will focus on research and practice aimed at optimizing well-being for organizations and employees. The Thursday Theme committee has tentatively developed six unique sessions to address various cutting-edge topics such as the impact of mergers/acquisitions on individual-organizational health
    • Saturday Theme: The State of I-O Education: A Candid Look in the Mirror. The inaugural Saturday Theme Track will be devoted to a vigorous examination of the current health and future prospects of I/O graduate education. A variety of opinion leaders and stakeholders representing both academia and practice will be assembled to deliberate the value of our current educational model and propose innovative and sometimes controversial ideas for shaping its future. An assortment of stimulating formats and accomplished presenters will be used to surface needed dialogue and focus on what it will take to meet emerging stakeholder needs, bring curricular innovation to life and recalibrate the nuts and bolts of high quality education.
