In other event news, The ESRS is hosting a networking event at the FENS Forum 2024 which focuses on “Current challenges and opportunities of using AI in sleep medicine and neuroscience.” This event is part of the FENS Forum on 25 June at 19:00 CEST and promises to be an engaging and insightful evening.


Last but not least, don’t miss today’s webinar at 12:30 CEST: “Sleep Centre Accreditation: New ESRS Guidelines.” This is a unique opportunity to learn about the latest accreditation guidelines for sleep centers, developed to reflect the evolution of sleep medicine over the past two decades.


Moderated by lead author, Dr. Sarah Hartley, the webinar will feature key topics presented by co-authors and experts in the field:

  • Prof. Dr. Dirk Pevernagie on why the guidelines were changed and the evolution of sleep medicine.
  • Prof. Dr. Thomas Penzel on the overall structure of the new guidelines and the concept of levels in clinical sleep practice.
  • Prof. Dr. Johan Verbraecken on the criteria for each level of clinical sleep practice, from level 1 to level 4.

Please be aware that there are an increasing number of fraudulent groups impersonating Sleep Europe 2024 and we would like to warn all participants to be aware of possible scams. We strongly advise that you only use the official housing partner, Congrex Switzerland, when making reservations. Please disregard any unsolicited emails you may receive from any other travel agencies or other companies offering hotel booking services for Sleep Europe 2024. 


Kind regards,


Pierre-Hervé Luppi 
ESRS President
