Bart Bijnens, UPF, presented a poster "Machine-learning based exploration of variability of longitudinal myocardial velocities in heart failure with preserved ejection fraction".


Maxime Sermesant from INRIA was invited to give an oral presentation “Personalised Cardiac Modelling for Clinical Applications” at the Cardiovascular Healthcare Technology Co-operative Open Day in London, UK. This event was open to patients and service users, as well as industry, funding bodies and colleagues from the research community, and provided a fantastic opportunity for the some of the VP2HF results to be presented to general audience.


Sergio Sánchez, UPF, presented a poster at the EuroEcho 2016 conference on "Machine-learning based diagnosis of heart failure with preserved ejection fraction: how much do we agree with the guidelines?".


Kristin Töndel was once again invited to present results from VP2HF to promote the study of computational sciences to students at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences in Oslo, Norway.


The Third VP2HF General Assembly meeting took place on 27 – 28 October 2016 at King's College London, UK and provided a great opportunity for project members to present their work and  discuss project progress and future developments. Demonstrations of the developed VP2HF platform and tools were also given to invited clinicians.  


Professor Reza Razavi, the project lead from KCL, was invited to give an oral presentation on “Using Computational Analysis to Predict Response to Heart Failure Therapy”. The conference provided an excellent opportunity to present the work of VP2HF to the Virtual Physiological Human community; and Jack Lee, from KCL, also gave an oral presentation on “Personalised Cardiac Electromechanical Modelling in Clinical Timeframe”.
