June 24th-27th, 2017. Larisa Tereshchenko served as President of the Joint 44th International Congress on Electrocardiology (ICE) and 17th Congress of the International Society for Holter and Noninvasive Electrocardiology (ISHNE). More than 150 participants representing over 15 countries traveled to Portland, OR to attend the event held both at OHSU and the Portland Art Museum. The congress included presentations, posters, and debates from some of the most influential leaders in electrocardiology, as well as some new faces in the field. Erick Andres Perez Alday, Golriz Sedaghat, and Jason Thomas from the Tereshchenko lab were selected from the 108 abstract submissions as three of the six finalists in the young investigators competition. Larisa gave multiple presentations on her research, and participated in a debate arguing that ECG should be used for SCD risk stratification. The event was a success due to the engaging scientific discussion by attendees, and the hard work of the organizing committee at OHSU. Thank you to the organizing committee: Jason Thomas, Elie Wiese, and Brittany Brownlee, who worked diligently for months to organize such a successful conference. In addition, we would like the thank Dr. Sanjiv Kaul for the support from the Knight Cardiovascular Institute, as well as allowing this event to come to OHSU. We would like to acknowledge Nichole Rogovoy for all her hard work in the final days leading up to and during the conference. Finally, a special thanks to all the Tereshchenko lab members who spent their time ensuring the event ran smoothly: Ryan Gonzales, Aaron Li, Ermina Lee, Silu Men, Chris Hamilton, Sara Gharehdaghi.
