Clinical practice is evolving at a rapid pace,nowhere more so than in the field of cardiology.Acute Coronary Syndromes, Sudden Cardiac Death, Heart Failure, Atrial Fibrillation,Syncope,and Prevention of Global Cardiovascular Risk are the main Emerging Pathologies to which many investigators are addressing their researches.

Like the previous volume, it boasts the participation of many nationally and internationally renowned spe- ers in the field of clinical and interventional cardiology who will interact actively with the delegates.

Understanding Context: Environment, Language, and Information Architecture
To make sense of the world, we're always trying to place things in context, whether our environment is physical, cultural, or something else altogether.
