Abstract Categories

Authors will need to select whether the abstract relates to basic and translational sleep science or clinical sleep science and practice and then pick an appropriate category.

NOTE: Authors are required to select an abstract category when submitting their abstracts; the APSS Program Committee reserves the right to move abstracts between categories as it sees fit.

  1. Basic and Translational Sleep Science
    • This category includes basic research on the fundamental aspects of sleep and circadian rhythms from animal models to humans as well as translational research on fundamental mechanisms to understand disease and discover treatments.
    • e.g. Phase 1 trials, studies on healthy populations, etc.

  2. Clinical Sleep Science and Practice 
    • This category includes a focus on clinical practice, policy, populations, or research with an immediate or direct clinical application.
    • e.g. Phase 2-3 trials, studies on clinical populations, etc.
