Now Accepting Letters of Interest for IPSA 2024
Dear IPSA Members and Colleagues,
IPSA 2023 will be the 8th biennial congress of the International Pediatric Sleep Association (IPSA). The congress serves as the premier event on the pediatric sleep medicine international calendar. Clinicians, basic scientists and clinical investigators, educators, sleep health advocates, and public policy makers from around the globe will come together to present the latest cutting-edge research, explore innovative solutions to current challenges, and provide an unparalleled opportunity for international collaboration in the field of pediatric sleep.
In keeping with IPSA's mission of global inclusivity, the location of the congress rotates among continents (see below). IPSA also works closely with the host society/institution to organize the meeting, ensure scientific integrity, and provide attendees with a unique cultural experience in the host city.
