APA 2015 Convention Deadlines Approaching


by SIOP Administrative Office

The 2015 Annual Convention of the American Psychological Association (APA) will be held in Toronto, Canada, August 6-9, 2015. You have two avenues to submit your research: collaborative programming and traditional programming—and the deadlines are quickly approaching!

Collaborative Programming

The deadline for collaborative programming for the convention is October 15. A 300-word general summary and a 300-word summary of each participant’s contribution are required for the submission. This programming type has a symposium format (e.g., 3 to 4 papers, opportunity for a discussant) and requires topics that cross divisions (SIOP [Division 14] with Consulting, Health, Trauma, and/or International, etc.). The presenters do not necessarily need to be from multiple divisions, but the topics need to represent interests of multiple divisions. The collaborative programming is organized around themes relevant to psychologists today. The themes that will be featured at the 2015 meeting include:

  • Competencies at the Intersections of Diversities
  • The Promises and Pitfalls of Technology
  • Disparities in Health, Wellness, Justice, and Education
  • The Psychology of Work and Group Dynamics
  • Emerging Areas of Science, Practice, and Education: Lifelong Learning for Psychologists
  • Violence, Bullying, Victimization, and Trauma
  • Embracing Interdisciplinarity: Reaching Out Beyond Psychology

Traditional Programming

The deadline for traditional programming is December 1. Proposals for 50-minute symposia, posters, and papers in any area of I-O psychology are invited, especially those that address Division 14’s theme this year, “Replication and Discovery: How to Use Our Science to Uncover Truths and Solve Real Organizational Problems.”For posters and papersa 250–500-word summary is required that includes statement of the problem, participants, procedure, results, and conclusions. Symposia require a 300-word general summary and a 300-word summary of each participant’s contribution.
