Welcome to Athens SLEEP EUROPE 2022

Dear Colleagues,

It is our great pleasure to warmly welcome all European and other international scientists to the 26th Conference of the European Sleep Research Society, which will open its doors in Athens on the 27th of September 2022, hosted by the Hellenic Society of Hypnology.

The Congress, following the difficult period of a pandemic that barred international travel and prevented scientists from sharing their experience and progress in meetings in person, is expected to bring us together once again and to facilitate exchange of ideas and knowledge in a manner that will promote science and will bond further the scientific community by face to face interaction.

We trust that the scope of the programme, which encompasses the whole field of sleep medicine, from basic science to psychiatry, to psychology, to neurology, to pulmonology, to surgical and oral procedures, to technological aspects, to subjects on the relation of sleep to law and regulations, will serve the subject in a mostly comprehensive way and benefit both the discussants as well as the audience who will attend.

Before closing, we would like to thank you for coming to our city, to wish you all a joyful and scientifically satisfactory experience, and to also wish that you will enjoy your time in our country. The hospitality by the officers and members of the Hellenic Society of Hypnology, as well as the great venue in the centre of Athens where the Congress will take place, assure that you will certainly have a really memorable time while with us.

Looking forward to welcoming you in Athens.

Dimitris Dikeos, President,
Sophia Schiza, International Liaison Officer,

on behalf of the EC and the members of the Hellenic Society of Hypnology
