Pisa Sleep Award 2024 -16th Edition

June 13 - June 14

From 13-14 June 2024, the 16th edition of the Pisa Sleep Award will be held at Aula Palazzo della Sapienza, Pisa, Italy.

The Pisa Sleep Award, a joint initiative by Professor Piero Salzarulo and Professor Luigi Murri, is an established and solid tradition in the sleep field, first established in 1994, and sponsored every two years by the School of Medicine, Pisa University.

The purpose of the Pisa Sleep Award is to acknowledge a European scientist whose career has been devoted to the study of sleep, including its physiology and its disorders, and whose contribution has represented an outstanding advance in sleep medicine.

The sixth “11 Minutes of Sleep” Symposium builds on the successful experience of the previous four events, organized back in 2014, 2016, 2018 and 2021 and 2022. The unique format of “11 MINUTES OF SLEEP” offers the opportunity for a straightforward debate on some of the core topics of sleep research. All speakers are invited to raise and address provocative and controversial topics in the field, strictly within an 11 minutes slot. Traditionally, each presentation is followed by a 9-min discussion, during which other speakers of the panel are invited to briefly comment on the talk, with the remaining time devoted to the speaker’s reply. At the end of the session, there will be time for questions and answers with all the participants and the audience.
