Special Sessions

Since the 2016 conference, the CinC has hosted at the annual conference “Special Sessions”, which are sessions proposed by members of the society and approved by the CinC Board.  The aim of special sessions is to offer conference attendees a window for promoting emerging research themes.  At the most recent conference (CinC 2017) the following sessions were featured in the conference program:

* Recent advances in understanding the basic mechanisms of atrial fibrillation using novel computational approaches

* Towards the Clinical Adoption of Electrocardiographic Imaging: Challenges in Evaluation and Validation

* Clinical Guidelines in the practice eHealth: Where do we stand?  

The call for special sessions typically opens early in the year of the conference and closes in March.  Proposals are evaluated by the CinC Board of Directors based on the timeliness of the topic, its uniqueness, and its ability to bring together key researchers.  The calls for special sessions for the 2018 conference has now opened.  

You are therefore invited to propose a special session by submitting the following information in the form of a pdf file:

  • Names, email addresses, affiliations, and short biographies of the organisers who are expected to have a PhD or MD degree and a relevant publication track record in the proposed area.
  • Title of the session.
  • Aim and rationale for the special session.
  • A list of proposed speakers, together forming an oral session with 4 presentations. It should be emphasised that abstracts submitted for a special session will be subject to review just like any other submission.

Proposals should be emailed as pdf documents to the secretary of the CinC Board, Luca Mainardi,  luca.mainardi@polimi.it, no later than March 15, 2018. All proposals received will be evaluated by the Board based on the timeliness of the topic, its uniqueness, and the ability to bring together key researchers. The Secretary will notify the proposers about the outcome no later than April 1.
