Invitation letter

Dear Colleagues, We are pleased to invite you to join us in Venice on October 3-5, 2019 at the 16th edition of the International Workshop on Cardiac Arrhythmias, VeniceArrhythmias 2019. VeniceArrhythmias is a well-established event on the world congress calendar for the cardiac arrhythmia community. Over the past three decades, hundreds of physicians, scientists, allied professionals, and industry partners from all around the world have chosen this prestigious Workshop to meet up and discuss the latest science, and innovations in clinical arrhythmology, cardiac electrophysiology and pacing. As in the previous editions, the most widely recognized and internationally accredited experts have been appointed to prepare a top-quality scientific program to foster the exchange of scientific knowledge and research at the highest level. The scientific agenda of VeniceArrhythmias 2019 will cover all the relevant aspects of cardiac arrhythmias, from pathophysiology to diagnosis, prognosis and therapy. A special feature of the upcoming edition is represented by the wide range of interactive and practical sessions, including debates, case presentations, let’s discuss all together, and prerecorded and live case sessions aimed at engaging the participants and encouraging the young and emerging leaders to be active protagonists of the event. There will also be special initiatives, like meet the pioneers and coffee time with mentors, designed to offer faculty members and delegates an extraordinary opportunity to share their ideas and visions in a friendly atmosphere and to build professional relationships of great value. As in the past, we will also have a series of joint sessions and geographic area sessions prepared in conjunction with the most important international societies in the field of Cardiac Electrophysiology and Pacing. The congress will be held in the prestigious venue of the Giorgio Cini Foundation, on the magnificent island of San Giorgio Maggiore, right in front of San Marco Square. Finally, you will have the possibility to visit and discover the wonderful city of Venice, one of the most evocative locations in the world, where art and history combine with the natural beauty of the place. We look forward to welcoming you to Venice Arrhythmias 2019! Yours Sincerely, Antonio Raviele
