Computational psychiatry is a rapidly growing field at the intersection of psychiatry, neuroscience and theoretical sciences. In-depth tutorials can greatly enhance the dialogue between fields.
This one-day meeting will provide three tutorials on reinforcement learning. In three two-hour sessions, we will start with the basics of model formulation, validation and fitting, and then move through a broad variety of applications of RL methods to issues across the diagnostic and clinical spectrum.
Below are some recent publications on the topic.

There will be two sessions, each containing up to six 5-minute contributed presentations. The aim is to foster collaborations between theoreticians and experimentalists by allowing for specific data / theoretical ideas to be presented to the other 'side'.
Data in search of model: Submissions for this session should describe datasets and briefly outline the modelling questions they raise.
Model in search of data: Submissions for this session should describe the models and the theoretical predictions and may briefly outline possible experimental approaches.
To submit to either of these session, please fill in the data in the data meets model submission form and attach it to your registration email as a plain text file.
Deadline for submissions: April 15th 2018.

The idea for this satellite arose in close connection with the Transcontinental Computational Psychiatry Workgroup TCPW, a monthly web-based meeting for computational psychiatry. We are very grateful for the support through the Society of Biological Psychiatry, and particularly its past President Kerry Ressler and its present President Carol Tamminga.
