SIOP Annual Conference 2022


Conference Attendance Justification Resources

For 36 years, the SIOP Annual Conference has brought together thousands of I-O psychology practitioners, educators, researchers, and students from around the world to network, share knowledge, and form lifelong professional connections and friendships.

We are excited to share that in the spirit of innovation, and for the first time, this year’s annual conference will feature both in-person and virtual offerings:

April 27 - 30, 2022
Washington State Convention Center
Seattle, WA

April 11 through May 1, 2022

The Program Committee is confident that 2022 SIOP Annual Conference attendees will appreciate this year’s robust educational offerings, featuring 200+ In Person Live Sessions (30 of which are planned for simulcasting to virtual attendees), 100+ Virtual Live Sessions, and 500+ Poster Sessions, many of which will be presented both on a Virtual Poster Day (April 20) and in the Exhibit Hall in Seattle.

But we recognize that the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic may impact some people’s ability to attend the conference in either format. If you need administrative approval in order to attend, please review these tips and template letter:
