International Congress on Electrocardiology Awards and Competitions
Young Investigator Competition
Since 2017, the Young Investigator Award has been sponsored by Edan Instruments, an internationally known manufacturer of electrocardiographs, patient monitors and ultrasound systems.
The International Council on Electrocardiology annually confers the "Young Investigator's Award" on an outstanding junior investigator in the field of electrocardiology, based on the submission of an abstract and subsequent presentation of a research project. Specific criteria that form the basis for evaluation include:
- Relevance to ICE
- Scientific Merit
- Scientific Rigor
- Structure and clarity of the writing and presentation
Message from the President
This message is directed to you, young investigator and early career faculty. Since its development in humans by Einthoven, more than 100 years ago, electrocardiology has been a continuous source of research and innovation. New techniques and applications for new fields have appeared in the last few decades, in an ever-changing story of renewal and rediscovery. For over a century, several generations of researchers, clinicians, engineers, and health professionals have devoted their lives to the study of electrocardiology
More than 30 years ago, ISE established a Young Investigator’s Award, created as a stage for young researchers to present their investigations and developments in the field of electrocardiology. This is a very unique moment of our congresses, when, in a special session, all attentions are focused on the presentation of new research by early-career colleagues to the audience and a judging committee of established experts. I am myself a Young Investigator’s Awardee, in a well-fought competition in 2001, in which two candidates shared the first prize. To participate in this award was a very important step in my career and it was a unique, unforgettable experience.
The ICE2020 Congress, which will be held in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, from June 25th to 27th, will have a session dedicated to the ISE Young Investigator’s Award. Submission is open from November 15th, 2019, to January 6th, 2020. We invite you, Young Investigator, to submit your best research to this session. We can assure you that those selected will have your work discussed and valued. I hope to welcome you to ICE2020!
