SIOP Program 2015: Philadelphia Kristen M. Shockley Baruch College, City University of New York Eden King George Mason University Although many of us are still “recovering” (those luaus and beaches are exhausting!) from the 2014 SIOP Annual conference in Hawaii, planning is already well underway for the 2015 conference in the city of brotherly love, Philadelphia. As the birthplace of the nation (and the home of the cheesesteak), Philadelphia promises to be an outstanding conference destination. The conference will shift back to April (April 23–25), and we will resume the traditional daily schedule. As always, the program committee’s goal is to in- corporate a diversity of topics, present- ers, and session types that aim to ad- vance the science and practice of I-O psychology. We will continue to offer Friday seminars, communities of inter- est, invited sessions, keynote speakers, an all-day theme track, along with the peer-reviewed submissions, including the recently introduced alternative ses- sions. This year’s theme track, following the vision of President José Cortina and led by chair Scott Tonidandel, is about improving methods in I-O psychology, with a focus on issues surrounding the current use, instruction, and evaluation 202 of methods in the field and suggestions for overcoming these concerns.
