Message from the Congress Chairs

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

ESRS’ first exclusively online congress, saw an extraordinary gathering of sleep professionals and enthusiasts from around the globe. We’re proud to announce that this year’s congress welcomed more than 2,150 participants from 106 countries, this international representation truly reflects the goal of eSleep Europe to make the best sleep science accessible to all.

Please be aware that if you were away or missed it, registration for eSleep Europe remains open and all presentations can be viewed on-demand for the next 6 months.

We would like to personally congratulate the Best Abstract Award Winners for their outstanding contributions and hope to meet each of you in Seville at Sleep Europe 2024.
