I’m knee deep in planning my schedule for the 2010 conference of the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology, which starts this Thursday. Depending on the technology situation, I’ll be attempting to tweet from sessions and either live-blog or close to it, to both share with you what’s going on and also to organize my own thoughts on the days’ activities. For now, I decided to post the list of sessions that look promising. This is certainly not the final list of what I’ll be attending, but instead represents everywhere I wish I could be simultaneously.
The virtual teams theme track on Thursday looks interesting too, but I’m pretty booked already!
This list is courtesy of the SIOP scheduling tool. It’s not perfect (I’d like to get output listing presenters, for example), but it was much faster than my usual strategy of reading the conference program cover to cover manually scanning for keywords.
If you’re attending SIOP and would like to connect, I suggest coming to Andrea Goldberg’s Thursday 4:30PM session (“Do You Tweet? Social Media and the Implications for I-O Psychology”), after which what appears to be a fairly large group of Twitter and Linkedin users will be heading to a local pub to chat about social media.
And if you’d like to just stop by and chat, feel free to stop by my poster (bolded in the list below).
