Guidelines for preparation and submission of abstracts

1.     Abstracts may only be submitted online. Abstracts submitted by fax or email will not be accepted.

2.   Abstracts must be submitted and presented in English. Please use UK English spelling and have your abstract proofread for grammar and understanding. Abstracts written on any other language will be automatically removed.

3.   The title may not exceed 25 words. The abstract text may not be longer than 350 words excluding disclosures.

4.   All abbreviations must be defined the first time they appear in your text (do not define in the title). Example: Ataxia telangiectasia (AT), before being used as an abbreviation only.

Do not define or use abbreviations in the title.

5.    Tables, charts or other graphics may not be included and will be deleted by the editors.

6.    Disclosures of potential conflict of interest by all authors and source of funding are mandatory. Each listed author should prepare a one-sentence statement to this effect. (All disclosures should be listed if relevant to the abstract content and all others within the last year.)

7.    Please make sure to state your correct e-mail address. After having submitted your abstract, you will receive a confirmation by e-mail with the following information:

·         reference number of your abstract (for correspondence and questions that might arise)

·         personal user code and password.

If you do not receive a confirmation by e-mail please contact ESRS2018[at]


8.  Should you wish to make corrections to an abstract already submitted abstracts later, you may use your personal access codes. Corrections to abstracts can only be made up to the deadline of Thursday, 31 May 2018, 23:59h CET.



All abstracts will be published in the Journal of Sleep Research Online as well as on the congress website. Full text of regular abstracts will be published 2 weeks prior to the congress
(11 September 2018).
