Memorandum of Understanding (MOU)
Between the International Society of Electrocardiology (ISE) and
the International Society of Holter and Noninvasive Electrocardiology (ISHNE)

The Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) is intended to regulate the common activities of two International Societies: the International Society of Electrocardiology (ISE) and the International Society of Holter and Noninvasive Electrocardiology (ISHNE). This MOU has been written in 2017 after the Joint meeting in Portland, Oregon. Both Societies would like to continue with Joint meetings in the future, and this document that regulates these activities can be attached to the by-laws of each Society.

The 2017 ISHNE / HRS expert consensus statement on ambulatory ECG and external cardiac monitoring/telemetry has recently been published simultaneously in Annals of Noninvasive Electrocardiology and Heart Rhythm.
This important document was prepared by an international group of experts in the field of  non-invasive electrocardiology. Now it is  available on the websites of both journals. Below  are the links to the document:

All accepted abstracts will be PUBLISHED in the Journal of Electrocardiology. A special issue of the Journal of Electrocardi- ology will publish accepted peer-reviewed manuscripts, originated from the selected accepted abstracts, after a peer-review. Submit to

Dear Friends:

At our last Board of Trustees meeting, I asked the Board to consider merging our biannual congress with other socieities’ congresses that had similar or near identical orientation and focus to ours. The advantages were multiple and included the potential for larger and more diverse audiences, pooling of financial resources, and greater suport opportunities. The Board unanimously approved the proposal and exploratory discussion with other ECG societies was endorsed.

The history of ISHM and its successor ISHNE began with scientific symposia. In 1979 Antonio Bayes de Luna organized a first international educational symposium on Holter Electrocardiography in Barcelona, which was presented as a professional service by Del Mar Avionics, Irvine, USA. At this symposium Bruce Del Mar started a longstanding partnership with ISHM and ISHNE and their many scientific members up to the present time. In 1983 Vinzenz Hombach, who was not aware of Antonio´s symposium, organized an international meeting on Holter Monitoring in Cologne. He invited Shlomo Stern as one of the international leaders in Holter monitoring and in particular as an expert of silent myocardial ischemia detected by Holter electrocardiography to present a paper on silent ischemia, but Shlomo was unable to come to Cologne. Instead of Shlomo, Dan Tzivoni, his co-worker, presented work on silent myocardial ischemia. In 1985 Vinzenz Hombach organized a second international symposium in Cologne entitled “Invasive Cardiovascular Therapy – Recent Advances and Future Developments”.
