4-5 June 2022: First International Meeting of ISE Young Community

The ISE young community held its first scientific meeting on the 4th and 5th of June.

The ISE-ISHNE Joint Committee for Scientific Documents

ISE and ISHNE have a great relationship. The areas of interest of the two societies are very close. In the past these societies created several joint documents such as guidelines and position papers together. To continue this partnership, the ISE and ISHNE established in 2021 a Joint Committee for Scientific Documents.

The committee is chaired by the presidents of the two societies, Bulent Gorenek and Takonori Ikeda. The other members are Antonio Ribeiro, Pyotr Platonov, Peter Macfarlane, Gary Tse, Adrian Baranchuk, Emanuela Locati and Wojciech Zareba. Members will serve for a two-years term. The committee will review joint paper suggestions coming from both societies and establish a joint writing committee for each topic and also invite joint reviewers for each paper.

ISE Webinar series

Since it is still difficult for many to travel nowadays, the ISE will continue its popular online seminar series over the coming months. We anticipate an excellent series with world-class speakers. The format of most webinars is a 15-minute talk and 5 minutes of discussion. We host them via Zoom at a time of day that we hope works (more or less) for everyone. Invitations for the meetings and the modalities for registration are sent by e-mail to the members of the ISE.

The latest webinar took place on May 12. The title was ECG in Inherited Arrhythmia Disorders (Part II) and it was chaired by Professor Takanori Ikeda of Toho University, Japan. The following presentations were given:

   ECG in presumed Brugada syndrome patients: Pride and prejudice
   by Prof. Philippe Chevalier (Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1, France)

   Too rare for routine, too common for mutation: clinical and genetic counseling of the risky alleles carriers
   by Prof. Elena Zaklyazminskaya (Petrovsky National Research Center of Surgery, Russia)

   ECG in Long QT syndromes, beyond long QT interval
   by Prof. Emanuela T. Locati (IRCCS Policlinico San Donato, Italy)

Message from the President

Bulent Gorenek

Dear members of ISE, colleagues, and friends,

I am extremely honoured to start serving ISE as the President for the next two years. This is a huge privilege, but also a very big responsibility, which I can only hope to fulfill.

I would like to acknowledge the Past President, Antonio Luiz Ribeiro, for his immense work during the last two years. I take over ISE in excellent health and successful operation. I promise that I will do my best to maintain the same level of activity as he established.

We will walk together to make the ISE the strongest advocate for our discipline and our professions. I will give my best to serve the Society in order to help it continue to achieve its goals.

Electrocardiology is an extremely dynamic discipline. Although its roots may be traced to the beginning of the twentieth century, the science of electrocardiology has continued over the last few decades to be an evolving, growing and interesting field. I assure you that we will always provide an innovative and comprehensive overview of the latest research developments in electrocardiology here, and via our Journal of Electrocardiology and that the Society offers the proper place to initiate international projects of value such as the establishment of guidelines.

The Council of ISE would like to encourage young researchers at the beginning of their careers to get involved in its activities. The ISE's work is focused on enriching your experience as a member, so it is always open to feedback on its current services and how it can better serve you. Please feel free to contact me at any time with suggestions for enhancing the work of ISE.

Kind regards.

Prof. Bulent GORENEK

President, International Society of Electrocardiology
