Welcome from the Chairmen, Massimo Santini, MD and Luca Santini, MD

Dear Colleagues,

it is a pleasure for us to announce once again, the organization of the XVIII Edition of Progress in Clinical Pacing (Rome, December 4-6, 2018).

The last Edition of the Meeting was really successful with a number of participants coming from 84 countries (approximately 25% more than the previous edition) significantly higher than in the previous meetings.
The Asia-Pacific area, especially Japan, India, China, the Arabic Region, South America and East Europe increased notably their active participation in the Scientific Program.

All the major Companies working in the field of Cardiac Pacing and Electrophysiology were present at the exhibition area and contributed to the Scientific Program with high-level Satellite Sessions.

We hope that the XVII Edition of Progress in Clinical Pacing will represent the physiological continuation of the previous one and that more and more doctors expert or interested in cardiac arrhythmias will participate as active Faculty Members.
The Scientific Program will deal, as usual, with the most interesting topics, technological innovations, new diagnostic and therapeutic techniques, health economy.

Much space will be dedicated to interactive sessions and debates in the Arena with the participation of the audience.

Technological innovations and new clinical data will be presented by the Industries in the Speaker’s Corner in the Exhibition Area.

A Special Exhibition of old pacemakers and defibrillators will be organized to show, particularly to the younger doctors, the fascinating history of cardiac implantable devices.

The expected faculty will include more than 500 scientists coming from various Continents.
Furthermore, the Course for Allied Professionals which is usually attended by more than 300 nurses and technicians will be once more organized, hopefully with an increased attendance.

We really hope that the positive trend in participation, observed in the previous meetings will continue also for the XVIII Progress in Clinical Pacing and that it will be an occasion, once more, to meet all together, in the nice Roman Christmas atmosphere and discuss of science and life.

A warm welcome to Rome by Progress in Clinical Pacing Scientific Committee.
