With autumn comes the moment of harvest, it will also be a golden occasion in Beijing. In September 2015, notable experts and scholars of Arrhythmias all over the world will gather in Beijing to participate in the 15th World Congress of Arrhythmias. This promises to be an excellent stage to demonstrate the progress in global Arrhythmias, Arrhythmias research and clinical outcomes.

In October 2009, Beijing successfully held the second Asia-pacific heart rhythm annual meeting (APHRS 2009). More than 200 experts and scholars from abroad attended the meeting, and nearly 3,000 attendees presented in this conference. Under the banner of “innovation and development, communication and cooperation”, the APHRS 2009 set up 81 sessions and 13 forums. It was the first genuine international academic conference held in China with English as the official language. It was a high-level and high-quality global academic meeting from the aspects of organizational management, session scheduling, and live communication. Since then, the progress has been made in leaps and bounds in the field of cardiac pacing and electrophysiology in China, and we have received more international attention and recognition.

In the Asia-Pacific region, especially in China, the morbidity rates of cardiovascular diseases have demonstrated an upward trend, and a large number of patients with cardiac Arrhythmias are in urgent need of treatment. However, there are still gaps to be bridged between the Asia-Pacific region and the world’s more advanced countries in terms of clinical and scientific research on Arrhythmias. The World Congress of Arrhythmias held in China will be of great benefit to China and even the Asia-pacific region. The release of the latest research results, the progress of optimal clinical diagnosis and treatment, and the presentation of the most advanced medical technology will greatly promote the development of the region’s Arrhythmias research, and enables more patients to benefit from World Congress of Arrhythmias.

We will endeavor to develop and design the most sophisticated academic agenda, and the wonderful lectures which they will deliver in Beijing, China and we will be sure to sate the most gluttonous of academic appetites.

wsa-World-Society-of-ArrhythmiasThe World Society of Arrhythmias (WSA) was founded in 1978, aiming to promote education and training of cardiac pacing and electrophysiology worldwide. WSA has established a tradition to organize academic sessions every four years, which have been held in the United States (1963,1968,1991), France (1970),  Netherlands (1973), Japan (1976), Canada (1979), Austria (1983), Israel (1987), Argentina (1995), Germany (1999), Hong Kong, China (2003), Italy (2007) and Greece (2011), and achieved remarkable results as expected.
