History: There have been three Federal Interagency Conferences on TBI, separated by about 5 years. The first was held December 2-4, 1999 and the second on March 9-11, 2006; both were convened at the Hyatt Regency Bethesda in Bethesda, Maryland. Over 500 people attended the 2006 conference, greatly exceeding the estimated attendance of 350. The third conference was  held  June 13 – 15, 2011 in Washington, DC, and attendance was approximately 740  individuals. The third conference attracted substantial scientific press coverage (including JAMA and Science articles) and received positive evaluations from attendees. The fourth conference is scheduled for June 11-13, 2018 at the Washington Hilton.

Purpose:  The 4th Federal Interagency TBI Conference will provide the opportunity for TBI professionals to share advances in traumatic brain injury research that have occurred since the 2011 conference, and to establish linkages among TBI professionals across agencies and across disciplines. The activities of the upcoming 2018 meeting will partially fulfill the requirements of the National Research Action Plan for Improving Access to Mental Health Services for Veterans, Service Members, and Military Families. Collaboration among federal agencies (both military and nonmilitary), TBI researchers and clinicians, and consumers and their representatives is critical to ensuring the success of this conference.
