Call for Submissions

The RCIO conference planning committee invites practitioners, faculty, and students who are interested in applied psychology to submit proposals for research/tutorial/application presentations and poster presentations that are generally related to the theme of this year's conference and/or to the practice of psychology in organizations. The submission deadline for this year's conference is September 30, 2016, but please note that submissions will be reviewed and accepted on a rolling basis to ease processing and provide conference attendees with as much advance notice of the conference program as possible. All authors will be notified of final acceptance decisions by October 5, 2016. The complete call for papers can be accessed by clicking here. 

Submission Guidelines

  • Research proposal submissions should include names and affiliations of all authors, the poster title, a detailed abstract (of no more than 400 words), and a more detailed one page summary of the project. If accepted, the submitted abstract will be published in the conference program. The purpose of the one page summary is to provide enough information, beyond that presented in the abstract, to fully review the submission.
  • Completed research submissions should include names and affiliations of all authors, the poster/paper title, a detailed abstract (of no more than 400 words), and a copy of the complete paper based on this research and prepared according to current APA style.
  • Additional guidelines for poster submissions: Posters submitted to RCIO may be of two formats: Research Proposals and Completed Research accompanied by a paper. Submission should be marked as either a research proposal or completed project.
  • Additional guidelines for research/tutorial presentation submissions: Non-poster presentations at this year’s RCIO Conference are scheduled to last 50 minutes including time for Q&A following each presentation. Each presentation room will be equipped with a projector, screen, computer, and internet connectivity. If other equipment will be needed, please specify in the comments box of your submission. Research/tutorial presentation submissions should include names and affiliations of all presenters as well as a title and short summary of the proposed session. Please include a copy of your resume or CV with the submission.
