ESRS

Dear ESRS members,

Many of you may already be on vacation or preparing departure for a hammock-related area, while others have elected to hold the fort and continue working in the lab or the clinic. Whatever your state and circumstances of activity, I wish you the best and hope you will find some time to read your summer ESRS newsletter.

First of all, welcome to the 88 newly accepted ESRS members since our last newsletter! I hope you will find solace in your sleep society, and the ESRS board is looking forward to meeting you in Bologna.

In this newsletter, you will actually discover two reports about the last meeting of the Assembly of National Sleep Societies within ESRS, held this year (29-30 April 2016) in Brussels despite alas again the dramatic context of terrorist attacks. This did not stop the assembly from having a very rich and productive ANSS meeting in Brussels, with a very good representation of the NSS Presidents and a perfect organisation and support from the Belgian Association for Sleep Research and Sleep Medicine (BASS). The meeting was also coupled with an important European Sleep meets the European Union symposium organized by Roberto Amici (head of the EU ESRS Committee) with representatives from the EU Commission to advocate the importance of the sleep domain in research and healthcare. As to emphasize the richness and importance of this cooperative meeting, we decided to include in this newsletter a report written by Liborio Parrino, head of the executive committee of the ANSS, together with a perspective written by Pierre-Herve Luppi on behalf of the board of the ESRS.

In the meantime, the Danish Society for Sleep Medicine (DSSM) organized a satellite event with the ESRS at the 10th FENS Forum of Neuroscience on the topic From Basic Neuroscience To Clinics (July 1). The program was scientifically excellent, and the local organizers must really be commended for their perfect organization.

Also, I am delighted to announce that Pierre Maquet was given the Pisa Award for his outstanding contributions to the field of sleep. Our warmest congratulations for joining the list of prestigious sleep scientists who have been awarded this prestigious prize!

Besides, and highly important for the life of your favourite society, you will find in this newsletter the call for nominations to the ESRS Board and Scientific Committee. Although several positions can be renewed, others have to step down after having served 4 years in their current position. It is important to carefully consider nominations of dedicated and capable members, as there are many challenges for the sleep domain out there, meaning proactive actions and hard work continue to be necessary. Please remember that only full ESRS members can be proposed and propose nominations, and that the nominees should also agree in writing to be nominated. The absolute deadline for receiving nominations is August 31, 2016. We warmly thank you for participating in the development of ESRS by nominating the colleagues that you think are best suited for the successful future of our society!

We also continue in this newsletter our spotlight focus on National Sleep Societies with an interview of Dr Raphael Heinzer, president of the Swiss Society for Sleep Research, Sleep Medicine and Chronobiology (SSSRSMC).

And finally, you should have already received notifications of the acceptance of abstracts and selection of oral presentations for the Bologna meeting, thanks to the hard and careful work of the Scientific Committee and the support of our PCO Congrex. Once again, we will have an excellent and diversified scientific content, while heading toward records of participation at the meeting!

With this I wish you to sleep well and keep safe, and I am looking forward to meeting you at the 23nd Congress of the European Sleep Research Society!

Sincerely,

Philippe Peigneux
ESRS President
