Event Overview
Welcome message:

Dear colleagues, friends and ESRS participants,

On behalf of the ESRS and the Local Organising Committee, it is our pleasure to invite you to the 22nd Congress of the European Sleep Research Society which will be held in Tallinn, Estonia, from 16 - 20 September 2014.

The European Sleep Research Society is an international scientific non-profit organisation whose purpose is to promote research on sleep and related areas, to improve the care for patients with sleep disorders and to facilitate the dissemination of information regarding sleep research and sleep medicine. The Estonian Sleep Medicine Association is a young society, founded in 2005, and the ESRS is proud to host its congress in a region where sleep medicine and sleep research is developing at a fast pace. We are particularly happy that representatives of other Nordic sleep societies have accepted our invitation to join the local organising committee.

Tallinn, the capital and largest city of Estonia, is considered to be Estonia’s crown jewel, boasts cobbled streets and rejuvenated 13th-century dwellings. Dozens of cafés and restaurants create an atmospheric retreat after exploring historic churches and scenic ruins, galleries and boutiques. Like most cities with an eight-hundred-year-old past, Tallinn is a patchwork of historic areas. The city’s pride and joy is without a doubt its Medieval Old Town with impressive and worth seeing monuments as Tallinn Town Hall which is the only Gothic style town hall left in Northern Europe, the Medieval Churches, Towers and Gates.

Congress attendees will not only benefit from scientific exchange during the formal activities. Networking with colleagues with a mixture of backgrounds allows for identifying new research ideas and cooperation. The ESRS family is also about friendship and having fun; over the years many of us have established lasting friendships with colleagues from abroad, highlighting the international and truly European character of our organisation.

We hope you will enjoy the meeting and we are looking forward to welcoming you to Tallinn in 2014!

Yours sincerely


Philippe Peigneux    
ESRS President

Erve Sõõru
President of the Estonian Sleep Medicine Association
