Society for the Improvement of Psychological Science (SIPS) Inaugural Meeting

Psychologists are gathering to initiate a community for improving research practices. The emerging society will promote dialogue, experimentation with new approaches, evaluation of existing and possible practices, and sharing and dissemination of evidence and insight about maximizing the quality and effectiveness of psychological science.

The first meeting will be held at the Center for Open Science in Charlottesville, Virginia from June 6 to 8, 2016. Because of practical constraints, registration is limited to approximately 60 participants for the inaugural meeting. Beyond the organizing team, registration will be on a first-come, first-served basis and we will create a wait-list should interest exceed capacity.

The conference will be free with costs covered by a small grant to Simine Vazire (UC Davis) and resources from the Center for Open Science (COS). Participants will be responsible for their own travel expenses, with a possibility that some costs could be defrayed for those that do not have travel resources. Also, COS has an agreement with an on-site hotel for reduced room rates, and there may be opportunity to stay with a local attendee.

After registering, meeting organizers will follow-up with you to confirm whether space is available and, if so, logistics for arranging your travel. The agenda is in development and will be shared with confirmed attendees for comment and improvement prior to the meeting.
