September 22-25, 2013, Zaragoza, Spain

The 2013 Computing in Cardiology Conference will be held in the beautiful and historical city of Zaragoza, Spain, from September 22-25. The meeting is affiliated with University of Zaragoza which will host the event.

The Venue
Zaragoza is a modern and welcoming city, with more than 2000 years of history. Its Iberian, Roman, Muslim and Christian history has gradually shaped the city to make it not only beautiful but also full of surprises. It has many cultural and historical landmarks, including the Basilica del Pilar, the symbol of the city par excellence. Parks, river banks, groves, river meanders... Zaragoza boasts several privileged natural spaces where water, and in particular the River Ebro, take the central stage, affording the city a special type of energy and light. Zaragoza is easy to reach by plane and high-speed train, thanks to its privileged location between Madrid and Barcelona. Participants can fly:

Directly to Zaragoza from Brussels, Milan, London or Paris.
To Madrid/Barcelona and transfer to Zaragoza by high-speed train (one hour and 30 minutes).
The Conference
Computing in Cardiology provides an International forum for scientists and professionals from the fields of medicine, physics, engineering and computer science, and has been held annually since 1974. The main topics include Computerized ECG, Cardiovascular Imaging, Electrophysiology, Modeling & Simulation, Cardiovascular System, Cardiovascular Mechanics and Medical Informatics. The scientific sessions include oral and poster presentations. All accepted papers will be indexed by El Compendex, available to subscribers on the IEEE Xplore website, and full-text searchable and freely available to all on the CinC website.

Preliminary Conference Schedule
The conference will begin on Sunday afternoon 22nd September with a special symposium of invited speakers related to the topic of Electrophysiological cardiac modeling. A reception will be offered at the end of the symposium. The scientific sessions will begin on Monday morning. In the afternoon, the traditional social program will take place, with a descent by the Ebro river, visits to some of the most prominent monuments, such as The Aljafería Palace, La Seo Cathedral, La Lonja, the Roman Walls and the Puerta del Carmen, outstanding examples of Roman, Muslim, Jewish and Christian heritage, and spectacular gala dinner in an emblematic setting. Sessions will continue on Tuesday, and will be concluded on Wednesday afternoon. Optional post-conference tour programs will be announced in due course. Please consult our website for details.

Rosanna Degani Young lnvestigator Award
The conference has instituted an annual award to encourage young investigators and provide a living memorial to Rosanna Degani. The candidates are required to submit both an abstract and a full manuscript, written as directed in the author's kit, by 1st May 2013. All valid applications will result in a 50% reduction in the registration fee, and the four finalists obtain free registration plus some travel support.
