2nd ESRS Sleep Science School “Sleep & Aging” to be held September 29-October 4, 2019
After the success of the 1st ESRS Sleep Science School “Neural Networks in Sleep” organized in October 2017, the ESRS board has decided to continue supporting the organization of thematic schools aimed at gathering early career sleep scientists around different fundamental topics, allowing them to gain knowledge, share their work and experience, meet experienced researchers, develop opportunities and create novel networks of excellence.
The second edition of the ESRS Sleep Science School will focus on “Sleep and Aging”, and will be held again at the Villa Clythia in the city of Frejus at the Mediterranean Sea (South France), from 29 September to 4 October 2019. ESRS board members Philippe Peigneux, Pierre-Herve Luppi, Lino Nobili and Tom de Boer will coordinate this 2nd edition.
The programme will be highly proactive and aimed at a maximal involvement of participants. It will include communications by international sleep experts on Sleep and Aging topics (both human and animal work), but also presentation and discussion of the participants’ own research, workshop interactive sessions aimed at writing research grants and proposals, and in-depth exchanges between early career and experienced researchers. Importantly, all faculty members will be present during the entire week, participate in the group activities, and be available for theoretical and practical discussions with early career researchers.
Currently confirmed faculty members are international sleep experts Julie Carrier (CA), Debra Skene (UK), Tarja Stenberg (FI), Lino Nobili (IT), Tom de Boer (NL), Pierre-Hervé Luppi (FR) and Philippe Peigneux (BE).
Like for the first edition, a limited number of ESRS grants will be offered to support participation opportunities for all researchers within Europe and abroad. Further information on the application procedures and a detailed scientific programme will be provided after the upcoming 24th ESRS meeting in Basel.

The purpose of this educational activity is to provide advanced training to clinical psychologists, social workers, PhD/NP level nurses and physicians in the practice of CBT-I. The workshop is roughly evenly split between didactics and active learning exercises. The learning exercises (Day 2 & 3) include e.g., case presentations and role plays. The lectures (Day 1& 2) cover several topics including advanced models of insomnia, actigraphy, interpreting PSG reports, alternative treatment strategies (e.g., sleep compression, bright light treatment, etc.), alternative treatment delivery modes (e.g. group, telehealth, etc.) and issues regarding medication titration. The programme should position clinicians to more effectively deal with complex issues and cases. This training, along with other CE workshops, supervised practice, a past case load of 10 or more cases, and a reasonable programme of self-study (readings and videos) should adequately prepare individuals for the certification exams.
Registrants must have:
1. taken a Basic CBT-I workshop (via SleepScience or from the programs at Oxford University; Freiburg University;
For registration and further information contact Lisa Wood
We would like to ask for attendees to consider submitting a case study report for this course. Why should you do such a crazy thing? First, submitting a case is easy to do. If you elect to submit a case (and do so on or before the deadline), you just need follow our template to create a simple Power Point presentation that you will then present at the course. We try to present every case we receive, but if we receive too many submissions, we will select cases based on content and the best training possibilities for the group. Please know that your presentation at the workshop should require nothing more or less than you have done many times before simply presenting the facts of the case and stating what you did. We will take it from there. These presentations are meant to be instructive for you, the other attendees, and for us. These presentations form the core of what the Advanced Course is about and we greatly appreciate the effort expended by attendees who join us as presenters. One need not present to attend the course. Ideally, up to 10 attendees will elect to present cases. Cases due by 1 September 2019.

International Conference on Advanced Sleep Modulation Technologies Impact on research, health, and society October 27-30, 2019 website and
International Conference on Advanced Sleep Modulation Technologies
Despite the consensus that sleep is a crucial factor for wellbeing and healthy development, it remains unclear which sleep-related biological mechanisms underlie its positive effects on health and performance, and how these interactions can improve health and productivity.
This conference will address this question by assembling internationally renowned scientists and representatives from industry from a wide range of disciplines (i.e. neurosciences, engineering, computer science, epidemiology, ethics, and economics). Through an intensive transdisciplinary exchange on the topics of sleep and technology, we will ultimately shape novel concepts for application-oriented and translational research to have a beneficial impact on sleep and society.
- Attendance is limited to 100 participants, and will be based on an abstract review
- Participation is only possible with submitted abstract
- Abstract submission via the website form (opens May 2nd)
- Young scientists are especially encouraged to submit an abstract
- All selected abstracts will participate in the poster session
- Selected abstracts from young scientist will be featured as short talk in the Fresh Ideas session
- 1-page abstract is due by June 30th, 2019
(template (DOCX, 300 KB))
- Authors will be notified by July 24th, 2019
- Registration will open following the abstract review
- Authors of accepted contributions will be requested to register within 3 weeks following notification
- Bring together internationally renowned scientists and representatives from industry from a wide range of disciplines to discuss the interrelation of sleep, translational research and health
- Shape novel concepts for application-oriented research by linking scientific disciplines with a specific societal need and boost research collaborations for innovative, synergetic solutions
- Provide the opportunity for junior and advanced researchers to disseminate their work and interact with senior researchers
- Provide an update on the state of the art, highlight recent discoveries and identify future research needs
- Create a consensus manuscript describing current needs, future directions/applications as well as pointing out shortcomings
