About Event

The Danish Obstructive Sleep Apnea Symposium 2023

The Danish ENT Academy is delighted to host the Danish Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) Symposium 2023. The Symposium is being held on the 5th and 6th of October 2023 at the Comwell Køge Strand Hotel, Strandvejen 111, 4600 Køge, Denmark.

We welcome you all, both presenters and delegates to this exciting scientific program, translating new basic knowledge to clinical practice focusing on new diagnostic and therapeutic options in the management of OSA.

We have a great line up of speakers, both Danish and International. There is included a poster section, and we encourage submissions to this research presentation platform.

We trust this will provide fruitful and productive discussion for all our sleep apnea colleagues, both doctors and nurses. The language of the Symposium is English.

We welcome you to the Symposium, to Køge and to Denmark.

Junior Doctor Poster Presentations

We would like to invite research or case presentation posters for display at the Danish Obstructive
Sleep Apnea Symposium.

We will be selecting 10 posters for presentation for display, review and discussion during the symposium. The posters will be judged and the best two will be formally presented in the final session of the symposium. The best poster will receive the Sleep Apnea Symposium Poster Presentation Medal and 2000 Danish kroner.

Posters are to be submitted by e-mail. The deadline for poster presentation is five months prior to the event date. Successful submissions will be notified two weeks after the submission deadline. We look forward to this contribution to the symposium from our up-and-coming colleagues.
