Cardiac Physiome Society

The Mission of the Cardiac Physiome Society is to promote integrative multi-scale simulation and analysis of cardiac physiology in health and disease, spanning the full breadth of cardiac functions and all scales of biological organization from molecule to patient. The Society aims to encourage and facilitate international collaboration, cooperation, sharing, exchange, and interoperability in basic, translational and clinical research data, models and technology development by various means including the organization of an annual Cardiac Physiome Workshop.

Membership is determined by participation in the Cardiac Physiome Workshops.

The 2023 Cardiac Physiome Workshop was held April 24–26, 2023, at Edwards Lifesciences, Irvine CA, USA. The main workshop page is here.

The next Cardiac Physiome Workshop will be held in Freiburg, Germany, from 12 to 14 September 2024, organized by Drs. Viviane Timmermann, Axel Loewe, and Peter Kohl and held in conjunction with the final workshop of the MICROCARD project.

Please note that September 2024 will be a hot-spot of computational biology in South-West Germany, with three sequential conferences within a 60-kilometer-radius:

The deadline for abstracts to be considered for oral presentations is May 31st, 2024,
and the final deadline for abstract submission/revisions is August 1st, 2024.
