ECGI SUMMIT
Window to the heart.

Krakow, Poland

March 20th-22nd, 2025

ECGI Summit

ECGI Summit is the first conference entirely dedicated to the field of ECGI technology. An international conference with renowned guest talks and scientific sessions, focusing on new and emerging technologies in ECGI and aiming to foster new connections within the ECGI community.

ECGI Summit is organized by the Consortium for ECG Imaging (CEI), a group of engineers, scientists and clinicians who share an interest in exploring, expanding, and translating the concepts of ECG Imaging. CEI consortium aims to encourage development and widespread use of clinically and physiologically meaningful metrics for simulation, modeling, statistical, and comparison studies.

The first edition of ECGI Summit was celebrated in Valencia, Spain, in November 5th-8th, 2023

The next edition of ECGI Summit will be celebrated in Krakow, Poland, in March, 20th–22th, 2025


What's ECGI?

ElectroCardioGraphic Imaging (ECGI), is a technology whose overall goal is to characterize the electrical (and sometimes mechanical) activity of the heart from electrical measurements on the body surface (or on a probe in a cardiac chamber).

In general solution methods for this problem combine three types of information: electrical measurements (typically anywhere from 9 to over 200), a model of the electrical properties of the volume conductor between heart and measurements (usually obtained based on anatomical imaging such as CT or MRI and assumptions about electrical conductivity), and
a mathematical characterization of the electrical sources, current dipoles (again on a surface or in the volume), known waveforms with unknown timing (eg activation or recovery time), or simplified models such as rotating dipoles.


CEI Consortium 

The Consortium for ECG Imaging (CEI), is a group of engineers, scientists and clinicians who share an interest in exploring, expanding, and translating the concepts of ECG Imaging. We aim to encourage development and widespread use of clinically and physiologically meaningful metrics for simulation, modeling, statistical, and comparison studies. We encourage acquisition and dissemination of data within the community as we attempt to advance the field of ECGI from the laboratory into the clinic.

The CEI consortium web page contains a variety of resources and information and means to join the community and receive news via email. Of special note is the repository of data sets for validation of ECGI approaches and techniques; the data is freely available to all with well contributions of additional examples, as well as list of conferences and other opportunities to meet and learn about the field and advance it together.
