We are delighted to announce the 13th edition of VeniceArrhythmias that will be held at Fondazione Giorgio Cini in Venice, Italy on October the 27th through the 29th, 2013.
VeniceArrhythmias, a biannual meeting started in 1989 and, year after year, has become one of the most important international congresses in the field of arrhythmology with almost 3000 attendees and with more than 400 invited speakers.
This year, we are keen on further increasing the number of participants by proposing an even more attractive, innovative and focused scientific program that handles all the aspects of cardiac arrhythmias. The main topics of the upcoming edition will be: anatomy of the heart for electrophysiologists, atrial fibrillation from A to Z, AF clinical trials update 2013, anti-thrombotic therapy for cardiac arrhythmias, arrhythmias in the elderly, pediatric aspects of arrhythmias, sport and arrhythmias, hereditary arrhythmogenic syndromes, contemporary and controversial issues in cardiac pacing, syncope, heart failure and cardiac resynchronization therapy, remote monitoring of cardiac arrhythmias/devices, sudden death, ICD and surroundings, new technologies and techniques in catheter ablation, cardiac arrhythmias surgery. The program will be organized in different sessions: from main symposia to debates, lectures, practical sessions, satellite events, oral and poster communications and allied professionals program.
As in the past, one of the main features of Venice Arrhythmias is the precious and valuable cooperation with the main Scientific Societies in the field of cardiac electrophysiology and pacing – like HRS and EHRA- whose representatives will offer their expertise aiming at preparing stimulating and multidisciplinary sessions on the most updated and controversial topics.
Special focus will be given also to the Geographic Area corners prepared directly by leading cardiologists from different countries who will have the chance to express and expose their growing research and competence.
Last but not least, Venice will offer the perfect setting to this workshop and its natural, architectural and historical beauty will create a spectacular stage where to forge new relations and strengthen old friendships.
Our goal is to meet every participant’s needs and we would be more than pleased to have you taking part in an event that is expected to be wonderful and unforgettable. We look forward to welcoming you in Venice.
