ICE 2018 A Huge Success

ice2018 logoThe  2018 edition of the International Congress on Electrocardiography (ICE) has come and gone and our hosts in Chiba City, Japan ensured that we enjoy an event rich in both science and Japanese culture.   Takanori Ikeda and his team ran the meeting with graceful efficiency and offered unique social events that will not forget soon.  Stay tuned for more reports to follow. 

This year, we also thank the Journal of Electrocardiology, for their support.  They will soon publish all abstracts of those accepted for the conference and who attend and present.

Dear Colleagues and Friends!

larisaOn behalf of the ISE-ISHNE ECG Congress Organizing Committee, I would like to thank all Speakers, Participants, and Organizers for an excellent event!  More than 150 participants representing over 15 countries attended the Congress.  More than 100 abstracts we re submitted for consideration and most were presented at the meeting. More than 20 young investigators competed in the Young Investigators Competition. The highlights of the C ongress included debates on controversial ECG issues, “How-to” sessions,  Round Tables Discussions and Key Note Talks. The Inaugural Mark Josephson Lecture on cardiac arrhythmia mechanisms was presented by the Director of UCLA's Cardiac Arrhythmia Center - Dr. Shivkumar. The exchange of scientific ideas and state-of-the-art presentations will serve as a foundation for our field moving forward, for the benefit of our patients.
