iHEART - Modelling the Cardiac Function

22-24 July 2019

Time left for reservation:

Event/Course description

This congress, organised in the context of the prestigious Riemann International School of Mathematics, aims at focusing on the state of the art in the mathematical modelling and numerical simulation of the cardiac function and its clinical applications.

This event will host 8 plenary lectures from distinguished scientists as well as contributed talks some presented by PhD students and some by senior researchers, and a poster session. PhD students selected for contributed presentation will be offered free accommodation.

The Congress is organized by RISM and MOX - Politecnico di Milano, and is partially supported by the EU ERC-ADG - Advanced Grant iHEART Project ID: 740132 - iheart.polimi.it
