Why you should attend


EHRA EUROPACE – CARDIOSTIM 2017 promises to be a highly successful congress!

The EHRA Scientific Programme Committee has developed a compelling programme designed to provide attendees with the latest in science and education in the field of cardiac rhythm disorders and therapies.

During this four-day congress, highly commended scientific sessions will cover all aspects of pacing and electrophysiology. Delegates will also have the chance to discover new research, learn from world-renowned experts and discuss with colleagues and peers.

Dedicated sessions for Allied Professionals, Young Electrophysiologists, and Women in EP will be delivered and once again, the congress will be joined by colleagues from the ESC Working Groups on e-Cardiology and on Grown-up Congenital Heart Disease as well as the 41st Annual Meeting on Cardiac Cellular Electrophysiology.

We look forward to welcoming you to the beautiful city of Vienna, and make this congress another success!
