Now Accepting Letters of Interest for IPSA 2028 & 2030

Dear IPSA members & Colleagues, 

The congress serves as the premier event on the pediatric sleep medicine international calendar. Clinicians, basic scientists and clinical investigators, educators, sleep health advocates, and public policy makers from around the globe will come together to present the latest cutting-edge research, explore innovative solutions to current challenges, and provide an unparalleled opportunity for international collaboration in the field of pediatric sleep.

In keeping with IPSA's mission of global inclusivity, the location of the congress rotates among continents (see below). IPSA is accepting proposals from any geographic location for 2028 and 2030.

IPSA also works closely with a local sleep society, institution, or group to organize the meeting and ensure scientific integrity as well as provide attendees with a unique cultural experience in the host city. The host does not need to be a formal sleep society; an institution or research group may also host.

Letters of interest are due by September 1, 2024.

To express interest, host societies or groups should provide the following information:

  1. Leadership or board members names and contact information
  2. Number of members
  3. Meeting history: Location, dates, number of attendees, etc. 
  4. Proposed local organizing committee for IPSA 2028/2030
  5. Reason for interest in hosting the IPSA congress
  6. Preferred congress city and meeting dates or time of year, if applicable

Please do not include budgets, support from government agencies or conference venue bids. 

Letters of interest can be emailed to the International Pediatric Sleep Association administrative office at: by September 1, 2024

Our 8th IPSA Congress was held in Glasgow, Scotland on April 26-28, 2024 and had an  attendance of 469 delegates. IPSA 2024 had the highest record of science submissions from past congresses.

Thank you for your consideration, 

Paul Gringras 

President, International Pediatric Sleep Association
