The genetic tractability and expansive circuit mapping toolkit of Drosophila provide an ideal model system for studying sleep and other complex behaviors. Fly sleep has been shown to follow a circadian pattern and display many of the fundamental features of mammalian sleep, including homeostatic control. Over the last decade, many cellular and molecular components controlling Drosophila sleep regulation and function have been described. This small conference will bring together experts in the field to discuss the latest advances toward a comprehensive mechanistic understanding of fly sleep. For perspective, we will also include special talks on sleep behavior in various other model systems.

Application deadline: June 28, 2019 (11:59 p.m. ET)
