Aging and Sleep 2014 International Meeting
On behalf of the International Association of Sleep Research in Gerontology (IASRG), you are invited to be part of the Aging and Sleep 2014 International Meeting in Lyon, France. This meeting will focus on diagnostic and therapeutic processes that have, or will have, real clinical use in older adults.
Sleep is a fundamental but often ignored component of healthy aging. Sleep disorders play a salient role in increasing vulnerability to illness and disability. Assessing and managing sleep disorders in caring for aged must be a priority and deserves more attention. Attendance at the Aging and Sleep 2014 International Meeting will give participants a broad understanding of the state-of-the-art practices in geriatric sleep medicine.
The program will cover:
• current clinical practices used when investigating and treating sleep disorders in older adults;
• recent basic and clinical research;
• areas of controversy; and
• ethical, social and economic issues relevant to geriatric sleep medicine.
The Aging and Sleep 2014 International Meeting is expected to gather participants from all over the world and connect them to clinical and research networks that can improve patient care and advance their career. We look forward to an exciting scientific program with world renowned experts in the field of geriatric sleep medicine and research. We cordially invite delegates to submit abstracts and proposals for symposia to be presented at the Congress.
Whether you submit an abstract and present or simply attend and collaborate with your international colleagues, this meeting will be memorable. Lyon is designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site and has a reputation as the French capital of gastronomy.
We look forward to seeing you in Lyon in June 2014.
