2016 Conference Program Scott Tonidandel Program Chair, 2016 We received over 1,400 submissions for the 2016 SIOP conference in Anaheim! Around 850 sessions were accepted, and the conference is sure to be one of great appeal and intellectual stimulation. In addition to the peer-reviewed master tuto- rials, debates, symposia, posters, roundta- bles, alternative session types, and panels that were submitted, the conference com- mittee has been working hard to assemble a quality collection of Friday Seminars, Communities of Interest, a Master Collab- oration, a full-day Theme Track, and other Invited Sessions. Below we summarize several notable program elements. You’ll be hearing many more details about the program as the conference approaches. Theme Track: Enhancing Impact: A Multilevel Approach (Chair: Zack Horn) The Thursday Theme Track presents a series of sessions on the first day of the confer- ence related to a unifying topic chosen to resonate with the interests of our full SIOP audience, spanning practitioners, academics, and students from across the globe. This year’s Theme Track is titled “Enhancing Impact: A Multilevel Approach” and is designed to showcase and inspire new member-driven initiatives that bring to life President Steve Kozlowski’s vision of “bottom-up, emergent, and self-organizing communities of SIOP members who are prepared to act.” We have carefully select- The Industrial-Organizational Psychologist ed our session formats and invited speakers to ensure that those who join us for the Theme Track leave well-informed, enter- tained, and inspired to make a difference. The Theme Track sessions are presented in the same room throughout the day, room ACC 204 C. You can stay all day or choose to attend individual sessions that are of most interest to you.
