Computing in Cardiology
(formerly Computers in Cardiology)
Computing in Cardiology meetings are organized by local hosts with the support of Computers in Cardiology, Inc., an international society of scientists and professionals from the fields of medicine, physics, engineering and computer science. Computers in Cardiology, Inc. is incorporated as a non-profit corporation in the state of Missouri. In accordance with its bylaws, CinC is governed by a Board of Directors, which is elected by its membership. Membership in Computers in Cardiology is attained by attendance at two annual scientific meetings within the past four years.
Beginning with CinC 2010, the name of the meeting (but not the organization) has been changed to Computing in Cardiology. When CinC began in 1974, it was possible to do research in cardiology without computers. Today, this is scarcely imaginable, any more than doing research without pencils, or chairs. Our name change reflects how the focus of the meeting -- which has always been, and remains, applications of computers in cardiology and cardiovascular physiology -- is aimed squarely at methods and results of computation, rather than on the now-ubiquitous computing machinery that pervades nearly all modern scientific endeavor.
