Date: 8th September 2019, Sunday

Location: Level 2 Auditorium, Matrix, 30 Biopolis St, Singapore 138671


This year, the Sunday Symposium is co-organized with our clinical collaborators from the National Heart Centre Singapore (NHCS) and the topic will be “Mind the Gap: Cardiologist and Engineer”. We have lined up 6 exciting clinical presentations that will be split into 2 main themes: (i) Intervention + Imaging; and (ii) AI driven clinic decision support for cardiology. Within each theme, prominent local clinicians will share their clinical challenges with a focus on translating these challenges into engineering ideas that can be addressed by the broader CinC community.
