ABSTRACTS
Submit research in any area of sleep medicine for inclusion as an oral abstract, poster abstract or young investigator presentation. All accepted abstracts are published in a Sleep Medicine journal supplement. Presenting authors must be registered for the congress by August 15, 2019.

ORAL ABSTRACTS
Authors will be given 13 minutes to summarize their peer-reviewed research in a specific topic area, and presentations will be moderated by experts in the field. A brief question and answer time will conclude the session. Authors that are not selected to present an oral abstract, will be given the opportunity to present a poster abstract.

POSTER PRESENTATION
Authors will present their poster during one of three 90-minute poster abstract sessions. Posters can be presented at almost any stage of research and provide an excellent opportunity for authors to discuss their methods and findings with other professionals.

YOUNG or NEW INVESTIGATOR PRESENTATION
Two tiers of Young or New Investigator Awards will be offered to qualifying individuals at World Sleep 2019. The first-tier award will provide the opportunity for up to 18 individuals to present their abstract during a special Young Investigator oral abstract session. The second-tier awards will be presented for the top ranked young investigator poster abstracts each day. The application deadline is June 15, 2019.
