The Association for Psychological Science’s (APS) Annual Convention is an exciting meeting that attracts internationally renowned researchers from every area of psychology, including many of our very own I-O scholars. With over 25,000 members, APS is the premiere international organization solely dedicated to the advancement of psychological science and the application of scientific psychology to the development of public policy. Last year’s convention rang in at over 4,000 attendees - a huge success! I-O had a strong presence at APS in 2016, with over 150 poster presentations and a special symposium showcasing student work. Exciting I-O events included two invited symposia (Mental Health at Work, and Aging and Retirement), and several invited talks by I-O scholars, such as Derek Avery (Temple University), Alice Eagly (Northwestern University), Carsten de Dreu (University of Amsterdam), Michele Gelfand (University of Maryland), and Filip Lievens (Ghent University). Additionally, Mikki Hebl (Rice University) spoke in a conference-wide interdisciplinary symposium on diversity, and both Tara Behrend (George Washington University) and Susan Mohammed (Penn State University) spoke in conference-wide, cross-cutting themes. Needless to say, I-O was very well represented.
