ESC Working Group e-Cardiology

The Working Group participates in the ESC Congress, which is an important opportunity for exchanging scientific work and accessing a significant number of sessions presented by international experts. The Working Group participates also in EUROECHO & other Imaging Modalities (organised by the European Association of Echocardiography (EAE)).

After the success of its first annual meeting held in Croatia in 2012, the Working Group intends to renew such initiative with a new symposium on e-Cardiology in 2014 (every even years).

In 2013, the Working Group will collaborate with the European Heart Rhythm Association (EHRA) by integrating session on e-Cardiology within the scientific programme of the EHRA EUROPACE Congress.

Working Group on e-Cardiology covers multidisciplinary areas of electronic and information technology applications in cardiovascular practice and research. These include signal analysis, cardiovascular image processing, computer simulation of physiological processes, databases and statistical modelling, clinical information systems, and structures and standards of data exchange. The Working Group develops or contributes to standards in these areas and aims at providing a professional communication platform between clinicians, engineers and information technology specialists. The Working Group welcomes suggestions for support and scientific endorsement of consensus documents, standardization reviews, focused seminars and meetings, and professional collaboration and exchange programmes.
