The 2018 ABCT mHealth Pre-Conference

An Innovation Forum sponsored by the Technology & Neurocognitive Therapies/Translational Research SIGs

 

Thursday, November 15, 2018, Washington DC

As a testament to the growing interest in our SIG and the growing appeal of the phenomenal work of our members, we have been invited to hold another Pre-Conference Institute at this 2018's conference in Washington DC, this time in combination with the ABCT Technology SIG.  We had another stellar line up of speakers and demonstrators that demonstrated an even stronger demonstration of the bridge between neuroscience informed methods, technology and clinical practice. 

 
The NTTR SIG “Year’s Most Influential Paper” Prize

The Neurocognitive Therapies/Translational Research Special Interest Group is very pleased to announce the first “Year’s Most Influential Paper” prize, to be awarded at the 2018 conference of ABCT.

The prize consists of $100.00 and an award certificate to honor the lead author of the paper that we believe best raises awareness of the role of the brain and/or mind in the recognition and treatment of psychiatric disorders. This award will allow our SIG to celebrate the year’s most compelling paper representing our mission statement. The winning author will be asked to speak at the subsequent year’s SIG meeting and will be specially honored at the Friday night cocktail reception.

REQUIREMENTS

  • The lead author must be an NTTR SIG member.

  • The paper must have been published or be ‘in press’ from 2017-18.

  • The paper must have a mid- or later-career first author, in other words, someone who has moved beyond student, intern, postdoctoral, or Assistant Professor status.

  • Applicants can range from Associate to Emeritus professor status, or the equivalent.

HOW TO SUBMIT

Submissions are due on August 20, 2018 by email to nttrsig@gmail.com and will be reviewed by a specially appointed ad hoc committee comprised of SIG members.
