ESRS 2014: Statistical Report

Published in ESRS Newsletter November 2014

 

The 22nd meeting of the ESRS was attended by a record 1’568 participants. The majority of sessions was well attended which attests to the high quality of the scientific programme and the wide interest in the field of Sleep Research.

The highlights of the meeting included:

  • The 3rd European Sleep Science award ceremony (the prize was awarded to Alexander Borbély);
  • The four key-note lectures: Richard Morris from Edinburgh, GB, Allison Harvey from Berkeley, US, James Krueger from Spokane, US, Jan Hedner from Gothenburg, SE
  • Three joint symposia of the ESRS with the ERS (European Respiratory Society), the EAN (European Academy of Neurology) and the EBRS (European Biological Rhythms Society)
  • Four European Sleep Research Networks sessions; European Insomnia Network, ESADA (European Sleep Apnea Database), European Narcolepsy Network and the EURLSSG (European Restless Legs Syndrome Study Group)
  • Twenty-one selected symposia covering the latest developments in the field and all areas of sleep research and sleep medicine
  • Lively and interactive “Science, drinks and snacks” poster sessions !

The great work of the ESRS board and the ESRS scientific committee, as well as the generous support of the local organising committee (Erve Sõõru and Tuuliki Hion) must be acknowledged.
