ESRS 2018

With a new record of 1’037 submitted abstracts and 1’903 participants from 64 countries the ESRS congress in Bologna in 2016 was very successful. Building on this great success, we are now looking forward to the 24th Congress of the European Sleep Research Society from 25-28 September 2018 in Basel, Switzerland.

Scientific Programme
In 2018 new, innovative session formats, will allow more time for interaction and less temporal overlaps. Extended duration of poster sessions during lunchtime and professional guided poster tours will give posters the importance they deserve. Look forward to a high-quality scientific programme with five fantastic teaching courses, numerous symposia and joint symposia, oral sessions, round table and case discussions, video sessions and four European Network Sessions are just some other highlights to complete the programme.

We also proudly announce Prof. Susan Redline, Prof. Charalambos Kyriacou, Prof. Emmanuel Mignot and Prof. Wen-Biao Gan as outstanding keynote speakers. Do not miss the chance to attend their lectures. The continuously updated Scientific Programme can be found on the congress website.
