Invitation and Greetings from Scientific Chairman
A very warm thanks for electing me as President Elect of CSI.
With the dawn of New Year, it is indeed my great pleasure to invite you to the 70th Annual Conference of the Cardiological Society of India (CSICON-2018), to be held at MMRDA Exhibition Ground, BKC Road, Mumbai - 400051, India from 22nd – 25th November, 2018.
The preparation of this four-day scientific extravaganza is in full swing. This time we envisage a unique scientific program which will not only enrich the cardiologist but will also help the physician to enhance their knowledge and skill.
India is a land of diversity and the city of Mumbai presents a splendid blend of modernity and traditional culture. Our endeavour is to provide a comprehensive and memorable scientific program to address the needs of this diverse country.
The theme of the conference, “Translating Recent Advances to Regional Needs”, strives to translate advances in scientific knowledge into meaningful steps that can transform patient care. The Scientific Program will be tailored to address everyday needs of the practicing cardiologist and physician, helping them enrich their knowledge. Problem based scenarios, debates, didactic lectures, recent updates in scientific guidelines, burning controversies, interesting cases and sessions on tips and tricks in cardiology will help transform cardiovascular care to the next level. The dedicated PG Training Course is being designed by experienced and renowned teachers and will be of immense value for fellows and PG students. The Quiz for Fellows and Faculty will surely stimulate your brain and heart – be there for a scintillating session! The program will also entail detailed interaction with renowned international faculties, particularly Joint Sessions with world reputed societies like AHA@CSI, ACC@CSI, ESC@CSI, WHF@CSI, etc. Our efforts to translate the content of the conference into text in Cardiology Update book will be an important document, a ready reference that encapsulates the entire curriculum and latest scientific breakthroughs and recommendations. This conference will put the spotlight back on learning and will be an academic feast as well as an effective forum for all the participants to exchange and enrich their scientific knowledge.
I am sure that the organizing team of CSICON 2018 led by Prof. Satyavan Sharma and Prof. Prafulla Kerkar will be working very hard and leave no stone unturned in making the conference a memorable event.
We sincerely hope that the blend of pleasant weather, warm hospitality, vibrant scientific program and your presence will make this conference a big success.
