As we look back to our July 2015 year in review issue (Blacksmith & Poeppelman, 2015), we could see then, as clear as it is today, the vast influence new technologies are having on our I-O research and professional efforts. Given that the significant investments in technology continue across diverse sectors and industries, in turn impacting I-O psychologists and the workplaces in which they practice and conduct research globally, we wanted to provide a summary of this year’s technology sessions to be shared at the SIOP 2017 conference. In Orlando, we expect a diverse selection of research topics across all I-O content areas, including technology. The objective of this article is to not only help streamline your potential choices for technology sessions to attend at SIOP 2017 but to also shed light on related trends we spot and gaps in technology research suggesting areas to further delve into for SIOP 2018.
