Joint Session & Recorded Case Proposal Submission
To increase opportunities for learning, the Heart Rhythm Society is seeking suggested Joint Sessions and Recorded Cases to encourage involvement of other heart rhythm communities and provide invaluable insight in performing procedures at our annual meeting. Submissions will be competitively reviewed by the program committee based on overall medical and scientific interest to the attendees at the meeting.
The submission site is now open. All proposals are due no later than November 19, 2020.
Joint Session Proposals
The Society offers the opportunity of Joint Sessions to encourage involvement of the heart rhythm community as co-participants in the annual event. The Joint Session proposals are strongly encouraged to reflect the importance of constantly pursuing innovations while remaining increasingly interactive and collaborative to improve the lives of patients suffering from heart rhythm disorders.
What we're looking for:
The 60-minute session should have one chairperson and a max of four speakers. The session should include discussion, or a format that fits the time allotted. Also, we encourage the collaboration among international societies in the submission of joint session proposals.
The five (5) content categories for the scientific sessions are Cardiovascular Implantable Electronic Devices, Catheter Ablation, Clinical Electrophysiology, Heart Failure, and Pediatric/Adult Congenital Heart Disease.
The joint sessions will be included throughout the program and scheduled either virtually or in-person in Boston.
These submissions will be competitively reviewed by the program committee on the basis of overall medical and scientific interest to the attendees at the meeting.
Submissions received from individuals or on behalf of an institution will not be accepted.
Recorded Case Proposals
Has your practice or hospital performed an interesting, challenging or rare case? Do you have such a case scheduled in the upcoming months? HRS seeks several of these interesting or challenging cases to showcase at the upcoming annual meeting. Selected cases will be featured in our “Recorded Case” session(s). The operator will have the opportunity to show an edited recording of the case which will then be discussed live by a panel. The final approved case presentation(s) will need to be in a MP4 format and not embedded in a ppt presentation.
The recorded case presentation format will provide Heart Rhythm Attendees with the opportunity to observe procedures conducted by the world's leading electrophysiology clinicians and then participate with the clinicians in a robust dialogue.
What we're looking for:
Please note the following:
The submitted procedure should be edited to no longer than 10 minutes
Three similar cases will be placed into each session
Ten minutes per procedure will be devoted to a panel discussion and Q&A
HRS may choose to produce additional Recorded Case Sessions for dissemination via our virtual event platform
Please include the following within your Recorded Case Proposal:
Case Title/Case Speaker/Name of Institution
Describe your proposed topic area(s) for recorded case presentation(s) along with learning objective(s).
Please provide a brief statement on why your institution should be selected for a Recorded Case Session at Heart Rhythm 2021
Are you familiar with the Heart Rhythm Society's Statement on the Use of Case Demonstrations at Meetings?
The final approved case presentation(s) will need to be in a MP4 format and not embedded in a ppt presentation. If accepted, I agree to comply with this requirement.
