Event Overview
Welcome message:
<p>It is our great pleasure to invite you to the Heart Failure Congress 2013, which will be held in Lisbon, Portugal from 25 to 28 May 2013.</p><p>Organised by the Heart Failure Association of the European Society of Cardiology ( HFA of the ESC), the Heart Failure Congress is a unique forum where cardiologists, interventional heart failure specialists, cardiac surgeons, internists, practicing general physicians, basic scientists, epidemiologists, cardiac nurses, industry affiliates and others have the opportunity to meet and exchange ideas and information.</p><p>The HFA congress is an international event open to anyone interested in any aspect of heart failure from epidemiology, through basic and translational science to prevention (reviewing the treatment of hypertension and post-infarction care), diagnosis (including novel imaging modalities and biomarkers), monitoring (together with remote monitoring), prognostication (risk stratification as well as use of biomarkers), medical and nursing management (including drugs, devices, tele-care and surgery). All of the clinical aspects are reinforced in the HFA Focus case based sessions. The programme will also include updates on the latest clinical trials, reviews of the best published papers and a summary of the most important heart failure presentations at the major international cardiology conferences, as well as joint sessions held with other international societies. There will also be presentations of new clinically relevant areas, such as diastolic heart failure. A specific track will discuss the role of the heart failure specialist of tomorrow looking into interventional cardiology, electrophysiology, and cardiac surgery. Additionally, several European Associations and Heart Failure National Societies will offer their contribution to highlight different perspectives of clinical management.</p><p>We invite you to use this unique opportunity to present your original research and exchange your experiences in all related heart failure topics by submitting an abstract (Abstract submission from 15 November 2012 to 14 January 2013). The top ranking abstracts will be presented orally and a large area will be dedicated to poster presentations, the perfect platform to meet peers and colleagues. As in previous years, travel grants will be available to a number of top ranking abstract presenters.</p><p>Lively, international Lisbon, is the ideal venue for a Congress with our profile and scope. The cityʼs wealth of historical, cultural and social attractions will undoubtedly be the perfect addition to complete your congress experience! Hotel and restaurant prices are very reasonable, and the weather at the end of May should be perfect.</p><p>We hope to see you at Heart Failure 2013 in Lisbon. Please make your plans early, as this promises to be a congress to remember!</p><table cellspacing=\"4\" style=\"width:100%;\"><tbody><tr><td style=\"text-align:left;width:25%;vertical-align:top;\"><strong><span style=\"color:#cc0033;\">B.
