Join Us in Dallas for SIOPs 21st Conference!
Julie Olson-Buchanan and Donald Truxillo
By the time you read this article, the review process for the 2006 annual conference will be underway. We wanted to share a few of the highlights that are already in the works.
We are really excited to tell you about a new venue for posters that we will be trying out in Dallas: SIOP is going to showcase the top 20 rated posters at the Friday evening all-conference reception. This venue will not only give SIOP the opportunity to recognize some of its best submissions, it will also provide more opportunity for conference attendees to discuss their work in a more relaxed atmosphere. So while you sip your drinks, youll be able to view the conferences top-rated posters and interact with the presenters.
Sunday Theme: Crossing Disciplinary Borders
To continue SIOPs effortsto increase the visibility and relevance of I-O psychology to society and to the broader business, academic, and government communities, this years special Sunday Sessions will be themed Crossing Disciplinary Borders and will highlight sessions that demonstrate the
interdisciplinary endeavors of I-O psychologists. These special sessions will kick off with two invited sessions highlighting speakers from areas outside of I-O, each with unique insights on topics that bridge disciplinary boundaries. This will be followed by a set of sessions reflecting collaborations on I-O topics from an interdisciplinary perspective. By crossing disciplinary boundaries, we all will gain new insights on the practice, research, and teaching of I-O psychology.
Another Great Set of Sunday Seminars!
The Sunday Seminars (formerly known as Expanded Tutorials) are back for their 7th year. Sunday Seminars, which are scheduled for Sunday morning, are invited sessions on cutting-edge topics that require advance registration and an additional fee. Please see
Tammy Allens article in this issue for a description of the great topics and speakers for this year.
Some Additional Notes about the Dallas Conference
The 2006 Conference will be held in one of the largest hotels in Texas, the Dallas Adams Mark Hotel. The Adams Mark offers some very affordable room rates, and it is within walking distance of many attractions. Dining and nightlife are also easily accessible via a short cab ride or the Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) train, which stops in front of the hotel!
As a final note, this year we will continue to have LCD projectors in every room! In order to use this equipment, you will be required to bring your own laptop.We also highly recommend that you load the presentations onto one computer before the sessions begin. In addition, in case technology throws you a curve ball, be sure to bring overheads as a backup. Overhead projectors will be available in every room.
See you in Dallas!
