Registration is now open for SLEEP 2017. Too early to register, you say? Not if you want to take advantage of the early bird discount! Register now!
The Program Committee is working hard again this year to make sure the meeting is full of cutting edge science spanning the continuum from very basic neuroscience to clinical research. There will even be more sessions devoted to research presentations (symposia and oral presentations of abstracts) this year, compared to last year.
As always, SLEEP 2017 will also have opportunities for trainees, aplenty. These include the annual Trainee Symposia Series, a Leadership Workshop--focused on developing skills to survive the transition to independence, the Trainee Development Suite--with new career development topics (and food!) each day, the opportunity to pair up with a senior mentor in the field, and the ever popular Trainee Merit Awards. New this year will be an International Peer Mentorship program, focused on providing a stronger and more engaging meeting experience for our international trainee members. See the Trainee Day page for all the details.
I look forward to seeing you in Boston in June.
