Welcome to EHRA 2018

EHRA Congress is now annual and focused on the needs of the electrophysiology community which we represent.
The European Heart Rhythm Association (EHRA) a registered branch of the ESC, a not-for-profit medical society led by expert volunteers, is proud to announce that as of 2018, its annual congress will be held in March instead of June.

This is an exciting opportunity for the association to take full ownership of its annual scientific congress. To ensure prime innovative science, the 2018 edition promises an exceptional scientific congress with renowned experts and worldwide key opinion leaders!

The EHRA 2018 Scientific Programme Committee has developed a top quality scientific programme designed to provide attendees with the latest in science and education in the field of cardiac rhythm disorders and therapies.

During this three days congress, highly acclaimed 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 exchange with colleagues and peers.

Dedicated sessions for allied professionals, young electrophysiologists, and women in electrophysiology will be delivered and once again on top of several summits on key topics from the first day of the congress.

We look forward to welcoming you to the beautiful city of Barcelona, and making this 2018 edition a great success!
