Out-of-sight, Out-of-mind: Bringing Overlooked Research to the Forefront


by SIOP Administrative Office

2017 Annual IOOB Conference Approaching

The 2017 Industrial Organizational and Organizational Behavior (IOOB) Graduate Student Conference is quickly approaching!

The Rice Industrial/Organizational Psychology Association is hosting this year’s event, which will be held February 9-11, 2017 at the Jones School of Business on the Rice University campus.

This conference is an opportunity for seasoned and developing professionals, current students, and others interested in I-O psychology and organizational behavior to engage with each other.

The theme for this year’s event, “Out-of-sight, Out-of-mind: Bringing Overlooked Research to the Forefront,” developed from a speaker series at Rice built on a concept called “unconventional wisdom,” explained Christy Nittrouer, a PhD student at Rice and an organizer of this year’s IOOB conference.

The group has a very impressive lineup of speakers, with SIOP Fellow Mikki Hebl giving the opening keynote on Friday at 9am and past SIOP president Jose Cortina flying in to give the closing keynote on Saturday at 11am.

Other guest speakers include Murray Barrick (Mays Business, Texas A&M), Fred Oswald (Rice), Juan Madera (UH), Whitney Botsford Morgan (UH-Downtown), Sarah Singletary Walker (UH), and Kelley Slack (NASA).

The conference opens with a happy hour/mixer with students and faculty at Valhalla on Thursday from 6-7pm, a mix of student talks and invited faculty talks and panels on Friday (methods-focused roundtable with faculty members), and an applied roundtable (with practitioners). Check the 2017 IOOB website for updates as the conference approaches.

Registration: $30, covers a dinner, two breakfasts, two lunches, and coffee breaks.
