10th ESGCO - European Study Group on Cardiovascular Oscillations

Kongress,  Öffentlich

Biological Oscillations and Health


The 10th conference of the European Study Group on Cardiovascular Oscillations will take place in Vienna, Austria. The beautiful city of Vienna offers a unique blend of imperial traditions and stunning modern architecture as well as its many cultural and culinary highlights.


It is our pleasure to invite you to the 10th ESGCO – Biological Oscillations meeting.


The aim of the conference is to provide an interdisciplinary forum for discussions of biological oscillations between researchers drawn from areas such as physics, mathematics, engineering, computer science, cardiovascular regulation, neuroscience, time-series analysis, theory of nonlinear oscillatory dynamics, information processing, cardiovascular and microvascular physiology, cell biology and clinical sciences.


Recent research has shown astonishing relations of biological oscillations with human health – the ESGCO conference 2018 will try to shed light on these relations. Examples are, to name just a few:

  • the circadian oscillation of heart rate and blood pressure as indicators of cardiovascular health
  • heart rate variability, which expresses the flexibility of the cardiac regulation
  • the astonishing connection between disturbed vagal oscillations and silent inflammation, the initiator of most chronic diseases
