SIOPSA Conference 2017 Call for Abstracts
Kindly submit your research papers, panel discussions, symposia, round table discussions, case studies, conference workshops and master classes. These could encompass theoretical, conceptual or empirical contributions relating to psychological processes, principles and paradigms, across diverse practice domains.
Expanding on the theme of being in service to society, the 19th SIOPSA Annual Conference will focus on the growth of the profession in all its facets, ranging from academia, practice, industry, and strategic partnerships right through to diversity.
SIOPSA’s President, Manoko Ratala, believes that “IOP needs to evolve to respond to the volatile, complex and ambiguous climate in both industry and the country as a whole. We need to ensure that IO psychologists are prepared for the real world of work as it unfolds. The key is in aligning the training curriculum to this unfolding and ever-changing landscape.” On the one hand, this entails increasing SIOPSA’s footprint and helping to develop a pipeline for future IO psychologists and, on the other hand, it means that we, as IOPs, must focus on improving and increasing value added services to our clients, in our profession and to our society.
Inspired by this sentiment and Manoko’s vision for growth in IOP, SIOPSA has conceptualised an overarching special theme for the 2017 SIOPSA Conference.
Ensure that you participate in this year’s exciting conference theme
Growing IOP to create #IOPLegacies
To this end, the 2017 Conference theme aims to harness our members’ experiences (both practical and scientific) that illustrate how IOP has contributed to growth with clients, organisations, in industry and in practice. The upcoming conference will therefore focus on IOP RELEVANCE, COLLABORATIVE SOLUTIONS AND CELEBRATED DIVERSITY.
We invite submissions from IOPs that contribute to the theme and encourage ideas for symposia, round table and panel discussions. However, we believe each intervention can contribute to the collective learning and growth of our members and, therefore, invite you to submit your abstracts around your key success stories, not just around the conference theme.
We’re looking forward to receiving your abstract submission for the 19th SIOPSA Annual Conference.
