Joint Secretary's Message

Dear Colleague,

It gives me immense pleasure to welcome you all for 68th Annual Scientific Conference of the Cardiological Society of India to be held at Kochi, between 8th to 11th Dec.’2016 in the lap of Mother Nature.  We have formulated Scientific Programme under leadership of Dr.M.S.(Shirish) Hiremath – President Elect and Chairman of Cardiological Society Of India. It was a daunting task because previous conference was rescheduled by three months till Feb’2016 due to natural calamity but still we have managed to do our best.

The main attraction will be more than 40 luminaries across globe who will be delivering their pearls of wisdom and scientific knowledge which will help us to improve our skills and knowledge.  The major global cardiological societies such as ESC, ACC, AHA, WHF AND SCAI are participating. 

A special plenary session “Presidential Conclave” is a star attraction.  We have made an effort to cover the topics from pediatric cardiology to adult cardiology. Subjects from basics to advanced care including heart transplantation will be covered. There are more sessions on Interventional Cardiology which is a dream of every cardiologist.  Not to forget, we have covered imaging, arrhythmias and devices at same go. 

To encourage PG students and budding cardiologists, we have accommodated more than 400 abstracts for moderated oral / E poster presentation. Best papers will be rewarded. A separate session “Star Wars” will be an attraction as a cardiological quiz accompanied by other quiz session for PG students. 

A separate PG track has been taken into consideration. An interaction with who’s who faculties will reduce their examination fear.  Oration, award sessions and echo vignette will be an icing on the cake.

The conference highlights are case base discussions rather than didactic lectures which will help attendee to apply in their clinical practice.  The entire conference schedule has been programmed digitally.  We want to go paperless (E- poster) to save trees.  “ Go Green Global Revolution”.

I look forward to see you at our most awaited Cardiological Society Of India Conference which will hone everybody’s knowledge. 

Long live CSI.
