Call for Symposium

The 2013 Pediatric Sleep Medicine conference program will include four submitted symposia. Symposia addressing clinical and basic or translational science topics in pediatric sleep medicine will be considered, and a combination of both is encouraged. Each symposium will be allotted a one-hour and 15-minute time slot. The first two symposia will take place on Saturday, November 9th from 10:15 to 11:30 am and 3:30 pm to 4:45 pm. The second two symposia will occur on Sunday, November 10th from 8:30 am to 9:45 am and 10:45 am to 12:00 noon.

The number of speakers is limited to 3, including the chairperson. A fourth person may be added if the chair intends only to provide a brief introduction. The symposium should allow 20-25 minutes for each presentation including time for questions. The submission should be structured as follows:

1. Overall title for the symposium and subtitles for each talk 

2. Full names and institution affiliation of the chair person and co-presenters
