Last Chance to Submit to the 2015 APS Convention; Deadline for Posters January 31

The 2015 Association for Psychological Science (APS) Convention is right around the corner (May 21-24) and the deadline for submitting posters is upon us! The deadline for submitting posters is January 31, 2015.

SIOP members are encouraged to submit their I-O-related material. Even if you don’t submit anything to the 2015 APS Convention, there are still fantastic reasons to attend!

Each year, the APS Annual Convention introduces attendees to an intriguing array of topics related to psychological science and its sub-disciplines. As I-O strives to become more interdisciplinary, it is important that we collaborate with other sub-disciplines in psychology. The APS annual convention acts as a catalyst in sparking these collaborations. 

Now is the time to begin planning to attend the 2015 convention, which will be held May 21-24 in New York City. The APS Convention is well-attended and attracts internationally renowned researchers from every area of psychology. Furthermore, the 2015 program will boast some of the hottest names in psychology (Peter Bentler! Angela Duckworth! Michael Gazzaniga! Steven Pinker! Michael Posner!). One of the cross-cutting themes for APS this year is immigration (a hot topic politically and culturally). Moreover, there is lots of wonderful I-O content on the program. Mark your calendars—here are some events that you won’t want to miss:
