Welcome letter

Professor Davor Miličić, FESC, FACC
Director, the 6th ESC Cardiology Highlights

Dear colleagues,

I feel privileged and honored to invite you to join us in beautiful Dubrovnik, Croatia for the 6th Cardiology Highlights – the European Update Meeting in Cardiology.

The Cardiology Highlights as a biannual meeting that started in 2009, as a joint project of the ESC and the Croatian Cardiac Society.  This year the Meeting is going to be held from 17-20th October, in the Lacroma Hotel. All of the previous Highlights Meetings attracted a very prestigious International Faculty and an interactive audience for all over the world, with a clear tendency of increasing both – quality of the Programme and number of Faculty members and participants. On that trace, we expect at least the same for the forthcoming Cardiology Highlights.

The Meeting is a primarily clinically designed for cardiologists and cardiology fellows, but also for other professionals and specialists taking part in all relevant fields of cardiovascular medicine.  The main aim is to provide a comprehensive state of the art overview of contemporary cardiology, including cutting edges in science and clinical practice, with a special emphasis on the newest ESC guidelines.  

The first day of the Meeting will be under the special auspices of the Heart Failure Association of the ESC, emphasizing importance and the cutting edge novelties in the field of the advanced heart failure.
Within the Congress we will also hold a joint Symposium of the Croatian Cardiac Society and the Cardiovascular Academy Society.

The Cardiology Highlights is designed as a comprehensive overview of the most important advantages in modern cardiological science and practice. Beside invited lectures from the leading representatives of various specialties in Cardiology, the Programme will be enriched with young cardiologists’ competition in presenting challenging clinical cases and with original contributions of our attendees in a form of moderated posters. The abstracts will be published in Cardiologia Croatica – the official journal of the Croatian Cardiac Society, an active member of the ESC network of cardiology journals. Last but not least, the best posters and clinical cases are going to be awarded at the Closing Session of the Meeting. Satellite symposia will be few, and we will do our best to make them unbiased and accurate.

Considering that the Programme is going to be very attractive, interactive and educative, we cannot ignore that Dubrovnik is really one of the nicest places on the earth. Therefore, we hope that beside a lot of work, a certain time will be saved for enjoying the unique beauty of the city of Dubrovnik, which is particularly nice in the October.

Because of all of that, I would like to cordially invite you to come and enjoy with us the 6th Cardiology Highlights – the Update Meeting in Cardiology, in Dubrovnik, Croatia.

Sincerely yours,

Professor Davor Miličić, FESC, FACC
