Computational Psychiatry
8:30 am - 6:15 pm
On May 9th, 2018, there will be a Computational Psychiatry satellite meeting focused on tutorials on reinforcement learning and model fitting. This satellite is aimed at helping academic psychiatrists to gain a basic understanding of Computational Psychiatry and consider its application in their area of research.

Psychiatric Genomic Consortium (PGC)
PTSD Working Group Pre-Meeting
9:00 am - 5:00 pm
This annual SOBP pre-meeting / workgroup sponsored by Cohen Veterans Bioscience. The PTSD workgroup has been a part of PGC since 2012 and has brought together over 200 investigators from more than 50 institutions representing 7 countries. The PGC-PTSD workgroup has expanded to include nine working groups, including: epigenetics, gene expression, imaging, and integrative systems biology. To date, the PGC-PTSD initiative has laid the groundwork for their first large-scale GWAS, which will contain over 32,000 PTSD cases and 100,000 trauma-exposed controls (see here ).
Their current goals are:
  1. To publish the first GWAS meta-analysis.
  2. Analyze Copy Number Variants (CNVs) and burden measures across PTSD studies in conjunction with the PGC CNV group.
  3. Continue increasing the PTSD GWAS dataset through additional genotyping on the PsychChip.
  4. Conduct their first Epigenome-Wide Association Study (EWAS) meta-analysis.
  5. Conduct their first Imaging meta-analysis.

This is the Annual meeting of the International Society for Research on Impulsivity. This year’s theme is Impulsivity and the Opiate Epidemic . The following are the learning objectives for the day:
  1. To bring together scientists from multiple disciplines (preclinical and clinical neuroscience, psychiatry, psychology, and computational modeling) working in the area of impulsivity, risky decision making and addiction, in order to promote interdisciplinary dialog.
  2. To involve trainees and junior faculty in the meeting and encourage their future participation in research on impulsivity, risky decision making and addictions.
  3. To encourage increased participation of minority, disabled, and women scientists and clinicians in the area of impulsivity through participation in this meeting.
