Electrocardiography is a basic technique that requires continuous learning. Electrocardiographic interpretation is crucial and must be carried out as part of imaging studies. We must make an effort to demonstrate that the electrocardiogram is a technique in constant evolution that provides information about aetiology, electrophysiology, mechanisms, the indications for treatment and prognosis, not only in heart disease but also in many other aspects, always with a good cost-benefit ratio. This is why we want to give a practical purpose to the ICI-2016 Congress. In addition to the classical topics in the field of electrocardiology, the ICE 2016 Congress will address new and important themes: atrial block and atrial arrhythmias (Bayes Syndrome), the ECG pattern of Brugada Syndrome (differential diagnosis), mistakes in the ECG interpretation in ACS, new insights into the electrophysiological mechanisms of atrial fibrillation, technical advances in surface electrocardiography, the role of late-sodium channel modulators and advances in the genetic diagnosis of arrhythmic disorders.
