Welcome to SIPS 2020

Welcome to SIPS 2020

The Empress Hotel in Victoria, B.C.

Registration for SIPS 2020 will open in late 2019.

SIPS 2019 recently wrapped up in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, and plans are afoot for SIPS 2020 in Victoria, B.C, Canada.  Watch this space for details.

Meetings of the Society for the Improvement of Psychological Science (SIPS) differ from most professional society meetings. At SIPS, there is very little sitting around listening to people talk about their research. Instead, most of the time at a SIPS meeting is spent working collaboratively on projects aimed at improving psychological science. We actually get things done. SIPS meetings also typically include a number of hands-on workshops (e.g., learning R, Bayesian stats, meta-analytic techniques, etc.).

SIPS 2020 will be sited in the Victoria Conference Centre, which is attached to the Empress Hotel . The city of Victoria is the capital of the province of British Columbia. Victoria is on the tip of Vancouver Island, southwest of the mainland city of Vancouver and northwest of Seattle. Victoria has a population of about 350,000 and it attracts vast numbers of tourists every summer. For tourist information including video, see Tourism Victoria.

We hope to open for early registration in the fall. In the meantime, feel free to sign up to be on the SIPS mailing list (available on the home page). That way you will get updates. You can also follow @improvingpsych on Twitter.
