Wednesday

SIOP has landed! Newcomers are invited to an information session and reception at 5:30 p.m. and y’all should come to the Welcome Reception at 6:00! SIOPers know how to start a conference.

Thursday

Opening Plenary: Congratulate award winners, roast one president (Doug Reynolds), and hear a new one’s vision (Tammy Allen)!
Theme Track: A full day of programming focused around the topic of bringing I-O innovations to life.
At our evening reception on Thursday, join us for the top-poster exhibition.

Saturday

4:30: Closing Plenary with Keynote Address by Father TJ Martinez. You may not know him but he will charm your boots off and inspire you to influence others.
6:15: Closing reception: Featuring the tastes, sights, and sounds of the four corners of Texas. This is the perfect way to cap off the SIOP experience.

Throughout the Program

  • Master Tutorials
  • Communities of Interest
  • Interactive Posters
  • Master Collaboration
  • Over 900 concurrent peer-reviewed sessions!

Enjoy all of this in the heart of Texas. Did you know that according to a recent New York Times article Houston is the 7th best place to visit in the world?  In fact, Houston is making its bid to be the cultural and culinary capital of the state.  Near the hotel you will find a beautiful park, headquarters of Fortune 500 companies, museums, and professional baseball and basketball stadiums.  Put on some boots, grab an ice tea or a Shiner beer, and reflect on how I-O psychology is even greater in Texas.
