Date:  November 9, 2017

The 2018 conference is gearing up, and will be a unique one. Specifically, CPA will be taking place as part of the International Congress of Applied Psychology (ICAP). As such, although the CPA convention will still be happening, it will now be a larger endeavour that integrates ICAP. This should draw a large international audience, and be a very unique opportunity! The conference will take place in the beautiful Montreal, Quebec from June 26-30. The call for submissions should open at the end of September, so look for that on our social media platforms and website. For more information about the submission system, the formats and types of submission, and the conference, you can go to http://www.icap2018.com/submissions. In short, there will be a number of different types of sessions, including pre-conference professional development workshops, posters, presentations, symposia, discussion forums, and the return of the GIMME-5 talks. We will still be hosting a student mentoring event, a social event joint with our military colleagues, and our annual business meeting. If you’d like to get updates about the conference as they come out, you can sign up for the email list at http://www.icap2018.com/. For CSIOP-specific information, make sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter. In terms of information to date, as a teaser, we know that at least three prominent members of the Canadian I/O Psychology community will be giving talks: Dr. Julian Barling (Queen’s University), Dr. John Meyer (University of Western Ontario), and Dr. Robert Vallerand (Université du Quebec à Montreal).
