Final preparations are being made for the start of the SLEEP 2008 scientific program, which begins at 8 a.m. with the plenary session. The registration desk opened at 6:30 a.m., so a large crowd has already gathered and is assembling in the Baltimore Convention Center ballrooms where the plenary session will take place.
Representatives from more than 150 exhibiting companies and organizations are putting the finishing touches on their booths and displays, which were loaded into the exhibit hall and set up over the weekend. The SLEEP 2008 exhibit hall will open immediately after the plenary session.
Abstract authors who are scheduled for today’s first session of poster presentations are setting up their displays in the viewing room.
Following the plenary session there will be a full schedule of clinical workshops, discussion groups, abstract presentations, meet–the-professor sessions, invited lectures and symposia.
