Invitation letter


Welcome to Venice by the Presidents

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the 14th edition of VeniceArrhythmias that will take place on October the 16th through the 18th, 2015.

VeniceArrhythmias is one of the most prestigious international congresses in the field of arrhythmology.

The secret of its success lies upon two fundamental components:
the high level of the scientific program with a worldwide recognized faculty,
and the magnificent Congress venue, the Fondazione Giorgio Cini in Venice across from San Marco Square.

As in the past, all the aspects of cardiac arrhythmias will be dealt with during the three days of the meeting, from epidemiology and pathophysiology to diagnosis, prognosis and therapy.

The main topics of the upcoming edition will be: zoom in on atrial fibrillation, anti-thrombotic treatment for cardiac arrhythmias, role of cardiac imaging in electrophysiology, syncope 2015 – challenging issues, sport and arrhythmias – old and new controversies, ventricular tachycardia – evaluation and therapy, focus on hereditary arrhythmogenic syndromes, sudden death and ICD therapy – indications and technological innovations, recent advances in heart failure and cardiac resynchronization therapy, progress in cardiac pacing, remote monitoring of cardiac arrhythmias/devices, lead extraction and device infection, new technologies and techniques in catheter ablation, surgical and electrophysiological interventions for cardiac arrhythmias.

A unique feature of Venice Arrhythmias 2015 will be a special program dedicated to the relationship between food and cardiac arrhythmias, a topic that is usually neglected in the medical meetings despite its important clinical implications.

In 2015, Italy will host the world Expo whose main theme will be nutrition, and we would like to take advantage of this extraordinary occasion to discuss in depth the impact that food lifestyles may have on the development and prevention of cardiovascular diseases and cardiac arrhythmias.

As in the past, the scientific program of VeniceArrhythmias 2015 will include also a series of sessions prepared jointly with the most important international Scientific Societies that have given their endorsement or patronage to the meeting.

A program committee, made of worldwide distinguished experts, has been appointed to prepare a high-quality scientific program that, we are sure, will meet all the expectations and needs of the numerous participants to the meeting.

Finally, it should be emphasized that VeniceArrhythmias will be held in one of the most attractive locations in the world. Venice is a unique city, which has preserved its structural integrity over the centuries; from a natural, artistic, and historical point of view it is a veritable treasure. We are confident that all these fascinating features will make VeniceArrhythmias 2015 a wonderful and unforgettable event We look forward to welcoming you in Venice.
