The 37th Annual International Conference on Computing and Cardiology takes place this week with over 340 delegates discussing the issues of technology and coronary care.

The four-day symposium organised by the University of Ulster’s School of Computing and Mathematics in conjunction with the Computer Science Research Institute, takes place at the Europa Hotel in Belfast.

Computing in Cardiology is one of the premier research meetings in this field and focuses on computer applications in clinical cardiology and cardiovascular research.

The conference promotes discussions and collaboration among physicians, engineers, physicists, biologists, computer scientists and others in research and development in cardiology.

Dr Dewar Finlay, from the Computer Science Research Institute (CSRI) and Conference Chair said: “Having the opportunity to host Computing in Cardiology will allow us to grow and maintain our collaborative links with international experts working in this area.”

Over 300 abstracts were accepted for this year’s conference with full details of the conference program is available online at

University of Ulster staff will be present research on electrocardiographic data as well as other research results from the EPSRC funded SMART2 Project on the advances being made by the project in the area of self-management of chronic heart failure.

Professor Chris Nugent, from CSRI and Conference co-Chair said: “We are delighted to have had the opportunity to host Computing in Cardiology. We recognise this as one of the key annual events within this research domain and are looking forward to supporting discussions between clinical, academic and industrial researchers working in this area.  Computing in Cardiology has been a long-standing research theme within the Computer Science Research Institute and we are looking forward to presenting our current work at the Conference this week.”
