Atrial Signals 2015

When: 22/10/2015 - 24/10/2015
Where: Karlsruhe - Germany
Quantitive analysis and diagnostics, predictive and therapeutic values

Research and development has brought many significant advances to electrophysiological examinations of the atria during the last years. Electroanatomical mapping systems reduce radiation, multichannel catheters allow for simultaneous high density mapping, and computer modeling enhances comprehension of signal generation and the mechanisms of arrhythmias. But despite all efforts, atrial fibrillation still poses a major problem for clinicians.Ā 

A joint collaboration of all experts - clinicians and engineers - has the best chance to cope with this challenge. This is the goal of our workshop - bringing together the leading experts from these areas, and to provide a stage for open discussion.Ā 

Topics of the workshop include:

  • Mapping of arrhythmias in clincial practice
  • Mechanisms of AFib initiation and maintenance
  • Signal analysis from engineers' and clinicians' perspective
  • Strategies for ablation
  • Atrial modeling to enhance comprehension of arrhythmias

Distinguished experts are invited to participate as speakers, and as panelists, in order to find common insights, debate theories, and discuss promising and argueable approaches.

The workshop is organized by the collaboration of the Institute of Biomedical Engineering (IBT) and the StƤdtisches Klinikum Karlsruhe, two renown institutions in the field of atrial modeling, signal processing and medical care. The Institute of Biomedical Engineering is part of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), a well-known university specialized on engineering. For over 15 years now, research in cardiac modeling and biomedical signal processing has been the focus of IBT, making it a renowned member of the international research community. The cooperation with the StƤdtisches Klinikum Karlsruhe, a clinical partner for nearly a decade, has led to dozens of conference contributions and journal articles, addressing issues of engineering interest and clinical importance.
