“Thank you for your ongoing interest in the Clinical Update Sleep event. Due to the current restrictions to public gatherings we have decided to postpone the face-to-face meeting that was planned for the 16th October 2020 at the Royal College of Physicians (RCP) in London. We will instead have a free webinar on the day dedicated to current concepts around sleep and the impact of COVID-19, insomnia and the latest on cardiorespiratory interaction in sleep apnoea. We will also present the highlights of the special Sleep-focused issue of the Journal of Thoracic Disease that will be published in October for the Clinical Update Sleep event. Please come and join us for this free briefing during the webinar on the 16th October 2020. In addition, we very much hope that we can bring to you the originally planned face-to-face event on the 19th March 2021 at the RCP with all the usual hospitality. Thanks again for allowing us to find the ’New Normal’, even if there’s nothing normal about it. We look forward to discovering the latest updates in Sleep Medicine together with you!”

– Professor Joerg Steier, MD, FRCP, PhD, Conference Director
