11th Industrial and Organisational Psychology (IOP) Conference

(dates to be confirmed)

Chair welcome

Welcome to the 10th Industrial and Organisational Psychology (IOP) Conference, July 3-6, 2013, Perth, Western Australia.

As Co-Chairs of the Conference, we join with the members of the Organising Committee and the Australian Psychological Society College of Organisational Psychologists in inviting you to submit your work and to attend this important and exciting event. The venue is the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre, a state-of-the art conference facility located in the heart of Perth’s CBD.

The overall objective of the 2013 IOP Conference is to feature leading edge science and practice in organisational psychology with the overarching aim to raise the international visibility and collaboration of IO Psychologists in Australasia and neighbouring regions.

Our objective is expressed in the conference theme “Crossing Borders: Exploring the Contribution of Psychology to Organisations in a Global Economy.” Our keynote speakers and workshop presenters represent leading Australian and international figures in the world of science and practice in IO psychology. This year we are excited to welcome Robert Lord (USA), Kwok Leong (Hong Kong), Talya Bauer (USA), Andrew Neal (Australia), Matt Barney (India), and Cristina Banks (USA). These internationally renowned scientist-practitioners will provide state-of-the-art perspectives on various IO topics of interest to researchers, educators, practitioners, students, and industry partners. In addition, we plan an impressive line-up of oral and poster presentations, symposia, e-events, and practice-related activities and sessions. In these sessions, delegates will showcase a wide range of leading research and practice in the field of IO psychology, addressing the various contributions of psychology to organisations in a global economy. Overall, our scientific program promises to stimulate thought and encourage collaboration among practitioners and researchers across various regions and countries.

Perth, capital of the State of Western Australia and the sunniest capital city in Australia, is well worth an initial or return visit. It is positioned as the western cultural hub of the world’s most populous region - connecting Australia to Asia and the Indian Ocean rim. The CBD runs alongside the northern bank of the beautiful Swan River and is only a short drive to Fremantle. Perth is also the gateway to spectacular holiday destinations, such as the internationally renowned Margaret River wine region, and places further north such as the Ningaloo Reef and Broome.

We look forward to seeing you in Perth for the Australian IOP Conference in July, 2013.
