Program

SIPS 2018 is an action-oriented meeting, serving our mission to improve psychological science. There will be no symposia or keynote speakers: the meeting will focus on initiating and conducting projects. In other words: no passive listening to boring talks, but instead getting your hands dirty and immediately starting to improve psychological science! All meeting attendees are expected to abide by our code of conduct.

Because this format is something not everyone is used to, and some of it might sound a bit abstract, you can check out last year’s program, the SIPS’ meeting OSF page, and this great blog post to learn more.

The conference programming committee is hard at work planning workshops, hack-a-thons, unconference, and lightning talk sessions for this year’s meeting. Don’t have any idea what any of that stuff means? Don’t worry – we barely do either! All that is required to attend this meeting is a desire to improve psychology and a willingness to get to work.

We are happy to announce that we are planning workshops on the fundamentals of meta-analysis, doing replications, preregistration, checking work of yourself and others, and how to initiate/participate in a multi-site collaboration using Study Swap and the Psychological Science Accelerator. We have also planned hack-a-thons on sharing replicable research (e.g., with the media, policy makers), as well as self-correction. Stay tuned for more info and program specifics.
