The Virtual Sleep Congress

The eSleep Europe Virtual Congress organised by the European Sleep Research Society will be held 46 October 2023. This 2023 ESRS sleep congress is planned as an exclusive online eventWe know your time and travel resources are limited and want to offer an accessible meeting where the decision to participate is not complicated. The vision for this virtual sleep congress is to allow a global participation, and to provide the opportunity for ESRS to spotlight the achievements of Europeans.

Pierre-Hervé Luppi, ESRS President and Erna Sif Arnardóttir, ESRS Secretary have agreed to serve as the Chairs of eSleep Europe 2023 representing the fields of basic and clinical sleep respectively.

Unlike our physical meeting, the virtual sleep congress sessions will not run as parallel tracks but focus one half day per track. Essentially the time commitment is only a half day per track but all participants will have access to all of the sessions and posters, both live and on demand. eSleep Europe 2023 will feature six halfdays of education, categorised by track to include keynote lectures, year-in-review, symposia, controversies, roundtable discussions and oral and poster presentations. Each day will be split into two tracks, one in the morning and the other in the afternoon.
