33rd Annual SIOP Conference Registration Now Open!


by SIOP Administrative Office

Early Registration Deadline February 21, 2018

Join SIOP in the Windy City in 2018 for the premier event in industrial-organizational psychology, the 33rd Annual SIOP Conference!

The event will take place April 19-21, 2018 at the Sheraton Grand Chicago, an ideal location overlooking the Chicago River and a short walk from popular restaurants and attractions, such as Navy Pier. Early registration rates are available now through February 21, 2018, so be sure you register soon!

With an expected attendance of more than 4,500, this is the largest conference of researchers and practitioners in I-O psychology in the world. Attending SIOP is much more cost effective and time efficient than participating in multiple seminars or webinars because you get all of the information you need in one place at one time for an incredibly reasonable price. It’s a great opportunity to build your career and glean information to address strategic issues within your organization. All of the conference details can be found here. You can also view the conference event schedule here.

*The spouse/guest registration permits an individual to accompany a regular conference registrant to receptions and the exhibit hall. This registration may also provide limited access to a session or sessions based on prior approval from the SIOP Administrative Office (e.g., attendance at the Opening Plenary or a session to see a spouse’s presentation). The “Spouse/Guest Registration” is NOT for individuals who would otherwise need to pay for a full registration. Presenters are expected to be paid registrants of the conference per the Call for Proposals, found here.
