  • Please note that you have ever received the YIA in the past, you are not able to apply for the YIA.
  • If your abstract is nominated for the YIA, you must submit a paper to the "Journal of Arrhythmia (English)".

Acceptance Results

  • The final selection of submitted abstracts will be done by the congress presidents, based on the reviews of the Scientific Program Committee.
  • Notification of acceptance will be sent in the middle of April to the email address that was provided during the registration process. We will also post the results on our website.
  • Please note that we may not be able to fulfill all requests with regard to venue and/or program.
