View the latest program information

Sleep Week gives you flexible access to up-to-the minute sleep education and research. You can participate in live sessions, access recorded sessions in your own time, or a combination of both. 

Because of this flexibility, there are a number of registration options. 

  • An individual passport registration gives you live or recorded access to every session during Sleep Week except the postgraduate short courses. If you want to register for a short course as well, just click the relevant Add button after selecting your registration option.
  • A group passport registration is for up to 10 people who you will need to nominate (including their email addresses) during the registration process. These people will have live or recorded access to every session during Sleep Week except the postgraduate short courses. Up to 10 people can view sessions as part of in-house training.
  • A ‘Select your own program’ registration allows you to register for either of the postgraduate short courses, and/or any of the individual Sleep Week sessions. You only pay for the sessions you select.

You will have unlimited access to the recordings for all sessions you have registered for. All sessions will be recorded and will be available online for purchase after Sleep Week for those who did not register to attend.

  • ASA Annual General Meeting and Awards announcements (Thursday morning)
  • Evening symposium sessions (Wednesday, Thursday, Friday evenings)
