Conference Theme:

The theme for this year is “Lead the Way: Leveraging psychological science to improve the workplace.” We are actively seeking submissions that demonstrate how sound psychological interventions, assessments, and best practices can be used to transform organizational culture, develop effective leaders, and build cohesive teams and organizations.

We are excited about this theme since it encompasses areas of research and development that are central to both SCP and SPIM attendees. Leadership development is a crucial practice that can occur at any level of the organization, from frontline employees to the most successful CEOs. By incorporating psychological science into this process, we are ensuring individuals are not only developing their task-related skill sets, but also their emotional maturity and personal growth to overcome the obstacles facing leaders in public and private sectors alike.

Proposal Type:

We encourage you to submit a proposal for the following presentation types. Only one can be selected.

  1. Workshops are in-depth breakout and skill building sessions. They are either four or eight hours in duration and should include a blend of lecture and other learning methods.
  2. Concurrent Sessions are breakout sessions consisting of lecture style presentations, best practice reviews via case study, or skill building opportunities with hands-on learning activities. They are 90 minutes in duration.
  3. Panel Presentations allow seasoned professionals to come together to present work they are doing, share their experiences or insights, and engage in discussion with session attendees. Proposals should include the names of all planned panel presenters. Sessions will last 90 minutes.
  4. Poster Presentations provide an opportunity for both students and professionals at all levels to showcase their qualitative or quantitative research during a poster gallery walk. At least one of the authors of the poster must be present during the poster session to discuss their work and answer questions.
