Since 2006, many Asian researchers interested in the field of narcolepsy and hypersomnolence have gathered together in the Asian Narcolepsy Forum to share their passion and future perspectives, with its latest 8th successful meeting in Taiwan, 2016. To upgrade and extend our activities and research arena, key members of the Asian Narcolepsy Forum reached a decision to found ‘Asian Narcolepsy and Hypersomnolence Society(ANHS). 
Our first society meeting will commemorate our long maintained friendship, with abundant research topics to attract students, residents, sleep technicians and clinician investigators around the world. We have invited most renowned researchers, most updated perspective in the field of narcolepsy and hypersomnolence will be shared and discussed. We believe the meaning this meeting harbors, as well as the scientific genuineness of our symposia will attract you all. 
Save the date for this meaningful event and hope to see you in Seoul.
