Participating in a Computing in Cardiology conference
Everyone is very welcome to register to attend our annual conference which typically takes place in September each year. Anyone interested in presenting their research should begin by submitting an abstract (see the instructions here), no later than 15th of April of the year of the conference. In addition, if you wish to participate in the Rosanna Degani Young Investigator Award competition, or if you are a young investigator who will be accompanied by a senior co-author, you may qualify for a reduced-fee registration (see below) if you submit a full paper at that time.
At the time you submit your abstract, you may specify that you prefer a poster presentation if your abstract is accepted. CinC poster sessions provide an opportunity to discuss your work in detail with interested attendees. The Bill and Gary Sanders Poster Awards are presented each year to the authors of the best posters.
If you will need a visa to attend CinC, apply for it as soon as possible; do not wait to find out if your abstract has been accepted.

The cost of registration is determined by the local hosts each year, in consultation with the CinC Board. This does vary from year to year but is usually in the region of 550 euros. Reduced-fee registration is available for students and other young researchers under some circumstances; details are below.
An early registration deadline (usually in July-August, see local website) is set each year, and any registrations made after this date may incur additional expense. Moreover, the local hosts may have reserved reduced-price accommodations for attendees that must be released or paid for at this deadline, and it may be difficult or more expensive to book hotel rooms near the conference venue after this date. Refer to the information posted on the local site for details.
Authors of accepted abstracts are encouraged to submit full papers (up to 4 pages) prior to the conference as pre-prints. The deadline for this submission is no later than two weeks before the conference begins and the preprints will be available to all conference attendees. After the conference, there will be a two-week period in which authors can make revisions to their manuscript based on any feedback received during the conference. The deadline for submitting the revised manuscripts is two weeks after the conference. All papers must be prepared in a predefined format and submitted online via the CinC abstract and paper collection site
Cancellation of registration will incur an administrative fee of 50 dollars. If cancellation occurs less than 4 weeks before the conference, 50% of the registration fee will be refunded. If cancellation occurs less than 1 week no refund can be provided. Certain circumstances (e.g. illness, bereavement) will permit refund of 100% of the registration fee.
YIA participants: YIA finalists are awarded free registration. Other YIA participants receive a 50% reduction in the registration fee provided that all YIA requirements have been met.
Others: An author not participating in the YIA competition is eligible for a 50% reduction in the registration fee if he or she meets the below criteria. Please note that ALL FOUR criteria must be met to qualify:
- qualifies as a young investigator;
- is first author and presenter of an accepted paper;
- has submitted both a conference program abstract and the corresponding full paper before the abstract deadline; and
- attends CinC with a senior co-author
Although all of the YIA requirements apply in this case, this option may be preferred by authors who are presenting work in progress, who have not previously attended CinC, or who prefer a poster presentation. It is also available for authors who have previously won the YIA and are thus ineligible to re-enter the YIA competition.
