Research Will Take Center Stage at SLEEP 2008

Beginning on Monday, June 9, more than 1,150 research abstracts will be presented during the scientific program at SLEEP 2008, showcasing the latest findings in sleep research from around the world.

More than 900 abstracts will be on display as poster presentations from 10:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m., Monday, June 9, to Wednesday, June 11. Each poster will be displayed for one day only. Abstract authors will be available at their posters to discuss their findings with meeting attendees.

Nearly 250 abstracts will be presented as brief oral presentations during scheduled, one-hour sessions from Monday, June 9, to Thursday, June 12. Sessions involve a common theme and consist of four abstract presentations. Each oral presentation is 10 minutes long and is followed by five minutes of questions from the audience.

Five “late-breaking abstracts” were selected for presentation during a special session from 12:15 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 11. These oral presentations involve high-quality, emerging data found between December 2007 and April 2008.

The abstracts being presented at SLEEP 2008 were recently published in a special supplement of the journal
