UPDATE ON ESRS 2014 CONGRESS

The ESRS 2014 congress in Tallinn is fast approaching. The updated scientific programme is available online at www.esrs-congress.eu (> Scientific Programme) and promises to be of outstanding scientific content.

We are proud to have with Prof. Richard Morris, Prof. Allison Harvey, Prof. Jim Krueger and Prof. Jan Hedner 4 world known keynote speakers. The scientific programme will also include symposia, teaching courses, video and case discussion sessions as well as round table discussions and a new network session for Young European Sleep Researchers. The orals and posters are currently being evaluated and will be online shortly.

The meeting will not only provide a pleasant atmosphere for everyone to learn but will also offer a basis for sharing visions for the future of sleep research and sleep medicine.
Don’t forget to book your ticket for the ESRS Networking Event, which will take place at the “Lennusadam”, a museum in a historic Seaplane Harbour in Tallinn.

The intermediate registration deadline is on 29 July 2014. Don’t miss the deadline to save considerably on the registration fees. Registration can be done online at the congress website www.esrs-congress.eu. On the congress website you can also book your hotel room and your flight.
