Symposia Submissions for World Sleep 2017

Thank you for sending contributions to a high‐level scientific program by proposing a symposium for World Sleep 2017. Symposium submissions have closed.

Symposia Scoring

Symposia proposals are currently being ranked by the 2017 Congress Program Committee according to the relevance of the topic, the timeliness of the research, and the broadness of the topic’s appeal. Higher weight will be given to symposia with multi‐national participation. Symposium proposals will be reviewed and individually scored 1 to 10 (10 = best) by each member of the Program Committee. Proposals will be scored according to the relevance of the topic, the timeliness of the research, and the broadness of the topic’s appeal. Higher weight should be given to symposia with multi-national participation. Professional staff will calculate the weighted average score of each proposal. Program Committee will hold an in-person meeting to review rankings and develop a balanced symposium program to include each major category of sleep medicine. Submitted symposia should follow a geographic and gender balance. Read World Sleep Society’s Scientific Selection Policy for further information.
