Positivity and Happiness in a Worrisome World”

The 2022 SOBP Annual Meeting will provide an interactive platform for learning and discovery. The meeting program will focus on alternative and transformative frameworks for understanding psychiatric illnesses, and present enhanced and newly emerging tools for measurement and manipulation. Within these frameworks and with these tools, techniques and experimental designs are illustrated that can enhance understanding of psychiatric illness and elucidate the biological pathways and markers of illness processes.

While scientific quality is paramount, this year the committee will also prioritize symposia proposals that are composed of diverse participants and that address diversity in scientific topics as indicated in the following diversity statements:
Diversity in Participants
Symposium participants should include scientists and/or clinicians who are diverse in gender, individuals from underrepresented backgrounds or underrepresented groups in science, technology, etc. In addition, symposia should attempt to include individuals who are at an early career stage.
Diversity in Scientific Topics
The SOBP strongly supports diversity in the scientific topics of symposia and seeks symposia that address important understudied factors (e.g., sex- and gender-based analyses, vulnerabilities and treatment gaps for minority populations, etc.) in psychiatric neuroscience.
