The Planning Committee has determined that there is a strong need for this conference based on the clinical and public health significance of atrial fibrillation as the most common cardiac arrhythmia and a growing epidemic, as well as rapid advances in our understanding of the mechanisms of and treatment options for this major public health problem. This three-day symposium is designed to meet the following objectives:

  1. Discuss the current scientific advances in pathophysiology and technology for the diagnosis and treatment of atrial fibrillation and atrial fibrillation related stroke.
  2. Discuss and integrate the application of current and evolving pharmacological and nonpharmacological therapies, and technologies related to atrial fibrillation and atrial fibrillation-related stroke.
  3. Identify the appropriate treatment options to improve patient outcomes.
  4. Provide appropriate care and counsel for patients and their families.

This symposium has been designed to meet the educational needs of cardiologists, internists, fellows, nurses, and technicians involved in the care of patients with atrial fibrillation. The scientific basis for, clinical experience with and limitations of new and existing therapies for atrial fibrillation and prevention of atrial fibrillation-related stroke will be explored. In addition to formal lectures, recorded case presentations, case discussions, focused mini-symposia and faculty-audience interactions using an audience response system will be used to highlight the current state of scientific knowledge in areas of major importance to clinicians. The faculty is selected to provide the highest quality teaching and access to the most current scientific information from leading international experts in the field.

Event Overview
Welcome message:

It is with great pleasure that I invite you to attend the upcoming 20th Annual International AF Symposium on January 8-10, 2015 at the Orlando World Center Marriott, Orlando, Florida. The Boston AF Symposium was initiated in 1995 in response to the growing epidemic of atrial fibrillation. Over the past twenty years, this meeting has become a major scientific forum at which health-care professionals have a unique opportunity to learn about advances in research and therapeutics directly from many of the most eminent investigators in the field. This intensive and highly focused three-day symposium brings together the world’s leading medical scientists to share in a highly interactive environment the most recent advances in the field of atrial fibrillation. The primary objective of the meeting is to provide attendees with a thorough and practical view of the current state of the art in the field of AF in a scholarly and collegial atmosphere. The meeting employs advanced teaching tools including satellite and pre-recorded case presentations and interactive audience response systems to share with attendees the most up to date basic, translational and clinical science in the field. The past two decades have witnessed dramatic advances in all areas of AF research which have contributed to major progress in our understanding of the pathophysiology of this arrhythmia and to the development of safer and more effective strategies for the management of AF and the prevention of AF-related stroke. The AF Symposium is dedicated to bringing these advances to our attendees each year in a highly organized and exciting scientific program.

In 2014, after 18 years in Boston, the meeting was moved to Orlando, Florida, where we were pleased to offer all of our attendees, industry partners and faculty the opportunity to be housed in one location. Situated on 200 acres, the newly renovated Orlando World Center Marriott Resort and Convention Center offers 2000 deluxe guest rooms, 5 restaurants, 73 meeting rooms, large and flexible exhibit space, a dedicated convention concierge staff, full service business center, and world-class exercise and recreational facilities onsite. In 2015, the AF Symposium again looks forward to offering attendees and exhibitors easy and comfortable access to the symposium, housing, and a wide range of amenities, all within a single convention facility.
