Now in its second edition, the International Symposium on Somnolence and Safety, or, for short, SomnoSafe, is an international event that is fully and exclusively dedicated to all aspects of the "phenomenon" of somnolence and the like, and to all aspects of the safety issues related to it.
The topic of "somnolence and safety" - where safety should be understood throughout as being related to somnolence - is inherently multidisciplinary. It indeed involves people from several fields, including science, engineering, technology, medicine, biology, physiology, psychology, ergonomics, risks, statistics, policy, certification, products, uses, insurance, and business.
All components of SomnoSafe are seamlessly integrated, allowing all participants to interact closely, whether scientists, engineers, physicians, manufacturers, OEMs, policy makers, end-users, or others.
The first edition of the symposium, i.e. SomnoSafe 2014, took place in Brussels, Belgium on 24 and 25 February 2014. The second edition will also take place in Brussels on 22 and 23 February 2016 (Mon and Tue).
SomnoSafe is intended to become THE compelling meeting and networking place for all the world's professionals working in any aspect of somnolence and safety.
