As a satellite meeting to Computing in Cardiology (CinC), the Consortium for ECG Imaging (CEI, http://www.ecg-imaging.org) has organized the meeting “ECGI Past, Present, and Future: from Engineering to Clinical Application.” The meeting was completely virtual. With financial support from the CinC 2018 Maastricht organizers, registration was free for all attendees.
During this meeting, the CEI celebrated its five-year existence and looked back at the achievements made in the field of electrocardiographic imaging (ECGI). Representatives from companies (CardioInsight (Medtronic), Acutus Medical, and Corify) and Academia joined us to share their views on challenges in bringing inverse electrical imaging and mapping to its full potential. The talks are available on the CEI YouTube Channel.
CEI Satellite Conference June 5, 2019 at FIMH in Bordeaux, France
June 2019, the FIMH conference took place in Bordeaux this June, on Functional Imaging and Modeling of the Heart (https://fimh2019.sciencesconf.org/resource/page/id/11). Preceding to FIMH, the Consortium for ECG Imaging organized a one-day workshop (on 5 June) to improve the interaction between engineers and clinicians in the field of ECGI. This CEI satellite workshop took place on the 5th June 2019 at the LIRYC institute amphitheatre in Bordeaux, the day before the FIMH conference begins. The format included a mixture of clinical and engineering presentations as well as time for open discussion.
CEI Workgroup Updates September 23-26, 2018 in Maastricht at CinC 2018
The 2018 CEI meetings at CinC 2018 will be focused on reviewing and reasserting efforts of the various working groups, of which there are five. We will kick off the meetings September 23 at 10:00 in the symposium venue, have collaborative meetings throughout the conference, and have a final meeting September 26 at 17:30.
CEI Hack-a-thon September 24-27, 2017 in Rennes at CinC 2017
The 2017 CEI hack-a-thon is focused on signal processing of ECGI data. The goal of the hack-a-thon is for various research groups to compare processing software and algorithms on common data, try various datasets on common software, or to collaborate efforts to address a common problem. We will kick off the hack-a-thon September 24 at 11:00 in the symposium venue, have collaborative meetings throughout the conference, and have a final meeting September 27 at 17:30.
CEI Sunday Symposium September 11-14, 2016 in Vancouver at CinC 2016
The CEI provided updates to the several working groups from the 2015 hackathon, which was held in conjunction with the Computing in Cardiology 2016 conference in Vancouver, Canada. In addition to group updates and ad hoc discussions, a third formal working group was established to investigate inverse problems in atrial arrhythmias. For more information on the working groups, follow this link.
ECGI Hackathon September 6-8, 2015 in Nice at CinC 2015
The CEI organized hackathon on forward and inverse problems in electrocardiography (also called ECGI), which was held in conjunction with the Computing in Cardiology 2015 conference in Nice, France. The event included several planned meetings and many ad hoc discussions and self organized projects. One result was the formal establishment of two working groups to make progress on focused projects from ECGI. For more information on the working groups, follow this link.
ECG-Imaging Workshop March 25-28, 2015 in Bad Herrenalb
This was the first workshop organized by the CEI that brought the community together to discuss the past and future of ECGI and its potential for clinical adoption. It was funded by German Research Foundation (DFG). In this workshop, selected scientists gave keynote lectures, researchers in the field presented their latest results and discussed aspects like clinical applications, source models and quality measures.
