The upcoming SLEEP 2017 meeting is the perfect place for networking with sleep researchers from around the world.  However, for trainees and junior faculty, networking with potential mentors and new colleagues for the first time can be intimidating.  So the Trainee Education and Advisory Committee (TEAC) has prepared the 10 Commandments of Networking to encourage SRS members to reach out during the SLEEP meeting.  While this was originally developed with trainees in mind, we hope all SRS members will take a moment to review and be prepared should a trainee or junior faculty approach you during the conference.
