If you are not currently receiving our announcements by email and would like to, please add yourself to the CinC mailing list (or send an empty email to AddThisAddress@cinc.org) and we will send them to your email address in the future.
At CinC 2011, we will be holding an election as required by our bylaws. With regard to this election, we are seeking nominations for new members of the board of Computing in Cardiology. Please view the details of the nomination process and information on making a nomination here: CinC Board Nomination Details.
Nearly 300 abstracts were submitted for CinC 2011, the deadline for abstract submissions has passed, and the review process is under way. No further submissions or revisions will be considered for CinC 2011. During the next several weeks, each abstract will be reviewed, and authors will receive decisions via email at the end of May. If you have already submitted a full paper, please note that you may not revise it during the review period. If your abstract is accepted, you will be able to submit your full paper beginning in June.
If you missed the deadline for this year, please consider submitting your abstract to CinC 2012 in Krakow, Poland.

Papers presented at CinC 2010 in Belfast have been added to the on-line archives of Computing in Cardiology. These full-text searchable archives include over 2000 papers presented at the past 10 annual CinC conferences (volumes 28-37, 2001-2010).
Belfast, Northern Ireland was the location of the 37th annual CinC conference from 26-29 September 2010. About 280 papers were presented during the three days of the conference. The scientific program of CinC 2010 is on-line, including abstracts of all scheduled presentations. Preprints of many of the papers that were presented at CinC 2010 are also available.
The winner of the 2010 Rosanna Degani Young Investigator Award was Giacomo Tarroni of the University of Bologna, Italy. His winning paper, MRI-Based Quantification of Myocardial Perfusion at Rest and Stress using Automated Frame-by-Frame Segmentation and Non-Rigid Registration, will appear beginning on page 1 of Computing in Cardiology 2010.
Winners of the 11th annual PhysioNet/CinC Challenge Awards were Rui Rodrigues of the Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Portugal (Filling in the Gap: a General Method using Neural Networks) and the team of Adam Sullivan, Henian Xia, Joseph McBride, and Xiaopeng Zhao of the University of Tennesee, Knoxville, USA ( Reconstruction of Missing Physiological Signals using Artificial Neural Networks).
Bill and Gary Sanders presented the Poster Awards to Segyeong Joo, University of Ulsan, Seoul, Korea (Prediction of Ventricular Tachycardia by a Neural Network Using Parameters of Heart Rate Variability); Karen Cardona, Polytechnic University of Valencia, Spain (A Biophysical Model of Atrial Fibrillation to Simulate the Maze III Ablation Pattern), Mark Potse, Maastricht University, Netherlands (Simulation Of Fractionated Electrograms at Low Spatial Resolution in Large-Scale Heart Models), Peter van Dam, Radboud University, Nijmegen, The Netherlands (ECGSIM: Interactive Simulation of the ECG for teaching and research purposes), Jess Tate, University of Utah, Salt Lake City, USA (Implantable cardioverter defibrillator predictive simulation validation), and Stefan Klug, University of Heidelberg, Germany (Displaying Computerized ECG recordings and Vital Signs on Windows Phone 7 Smartphones).
