The "NATO Occupational Aviation Cardiology Working Group” has produced 10 scientific papers on Aviation Cardiology after presenting 3 NATO panels in the last 3 years during AsMa meetings.

European specialists have been important in this work, which has substantial practical relevance for evaluation of both civilian and military air crew.

This was a lively and fruitful meeting, with discussions mainly centred at improving the communication with our member associations/societies and associates, and with the wider public.

Dear ESAM, the Aerospace Family of Europe, dear friends and colleagues around the world,

Recently, we concluded the ECAM 2018 conference in the beautiful city of Prague. As far as I can see, it was a great success, with over 350 registrations from 54 nations. The organizing committee led by Declan Maher has done an outstanding job, ensuring a smooth running congress in a lovely venue, topped by the Gala dinner and afterparty which was indeed something else! We must of course mention our Czech local organisers of the Czech Society of Aviation Medicine and the Czech institute of Aviation medicine – thank you for your kind hospitality and support for making the congress a success!
