Connecting Talent
with Robotic Opportunity

The Fifth Annual SCRN Meeting is rapidly evolving to be a major hub for robotic talent in the cardiology field. This platform for users of various remote technologies in cardiology is becoming an established event that is not to be missed. Cardiologists, fellows, innovators, industry and scientists gather each year for these action packed, dynamic programs. Debate, discuss, challenge, share, educate and learn with peers. Join the Fifth Annual SCRN Meeting in Miami and network with international delegates from across the globe. You do not want to miss this years Annual SCRN Meeting, where we connect talent with robotic opportunity.

Covid-19 Information

With regards to the COVID-19 health situation, SCRN will only accept in-person participants who are either fully vaccinated, recovered from Covid-19 or have a negative test-result. Please show your (digital) certificate at the welcome desk before receiving your badge.

You can make an appointment for a antigen rapid test at the nearest test center in Aventura Mall

via below button.

The Marenas Beach Resort team is dedicated to upholding and ensuring a safe and healthy environment for you and for their employees. They are actively monitoring COVID-19 updates from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) and will evolve their practices in accordance with the guidance provided by government officials and public health professionals.


All the employees and guests are always required to wear a face mask while in the public areas. They have also implemented a temperature checking station which will be required upon arrival.

Social distancing guidelines will be also implemented in all public space areas.


EPA approved cleaning products and disinfecting protocols will be used for guest rooms and public space areas with attention to high-touch items.

Marenas Beach Resort is offering daily housekeeping service, but for the safety of our team and our guests, we ask that you vacate the room while receiving service. 

Marenas Beach Resort is also adhering to the regulations implemented by the Florida and Miami-Dade County Health Departments which limits group gatherings. Due to limited capacity, hotel guests may not bring personal guests at this time. To limit this, the hotel is asking all their guests to wear a Marenas bracelet which will be given upon check-in.


On July 8, 2020, Miami-Dade County Mayor signed Emergency Order No. 26-20 which states that the maximum daytime and overnight occupancy shall be up to a maximum of two persons per bedroom.  

Once again, the safety of their guests and their  employees is their number one priority.

About Us

Who is Society For Cardiac Robotic Navigation

Believing in the future of robotic and automation on one side and recognising its under-representation in daily clinical practice on the other side, SCRN aims to establish a platform for users of remote technology in cardiology. 

Although all founders are electro-physiologists, activities are not intended to be limited to this field or any particular technology.

SCRN's main principle is to remain an independent, non-profit organisation aiming to promote innovation and development in existing, upcoming and future technologies in the field.
