Authors are required to select whether their abstract relates to Basic and Translational Sleep and Circadian Science or Clinical Sleep Science and Practice when submitting their abstracts. The APSS Program Committee reserves the right to move abstracts between categories as it sees fit.
Basic and Translational Sleep and Circadian Science
This category includes basic research on the fundamental aspects of sleep and circadian science 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.
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.
