The Wayne Hening Young Investigator Awards is made to welcome:
1. Either young investigators new to the RLS/PLMS field who are no more than 10 years past receiving their PhD or MD; or
2. Senior investigators new to the RLS/PLMS field (first publication of a first author abstract or journal article in the RLS/PLMS field is within the last 3 years); and
3. Their scientific RLS/PLMS work was accepted for presentation at the international professional meeting at which the annual IRLSSG meeting takes place. The next annual IRLSSG meeting will take place on September 28, 2013 in Valencia, Spain just before the WASM Congress in Valencia, Spain. Therefore, the scientific RLS/PLMS work has to be accepted for presentation at the 5th World Congress on Sleep Medicine.
The awardees are expected to present their work at the IRLSSG annual meeting, preceding the WASM Congress on September 28, 2013. The Wayne Hening Young Investigator Award will be handed in person after the presentation at the IRLSSG annual meeting.
The deadline for abstract submission and award application is June 30, 2013. Abstracts considered for award will be judged based on work quality and relevance to the field and notifications can be expected by the end of July 2013.
