ICE 2018 A Huge Success
The 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.
This was the second joint meeting of our society and the International Society for Holter and Noninvasive Electrocardiology (ISHNE) and we are very excited to be heading next year to Belgrade, Serbia for ICE 2019!
The Society is sad to announce the death of Pentti Rautaharju on Tuesday, August 7th, 2018.
Pentti was a real father figure who made a huge contribution to electrocardiography from the introduction of the Minnesota Code in 1960 through so many computer-assisted studies, with a particular interest in epidemiology.
He was a strong supporter and the International Society of Electrocardiology (ISE), served on the International Council, and hosted the 1993 ICE Conference in Kananaskis, Alberta, Canada.
Pentti will be fondly remembered and sadly missed by so many.
Our sincere condolences are offered to Pentti’s wife Farida and family.
