Second International Summer School on Technologies and Signal Processing in Perinatal Medicine - TSPPM-2021


Second International Summer School on Technologies and Signal Processing in Perinatal Medicine - TSPPM-2021

virtual event on July 16-23, 2021.

The event, organized by the University of Cagliari and financially sponsored by Sardegna Ricerche, brings together top scientists and researchers from all over the world to guide the students in the fascinating world of biomedical engineering applied to fetal and newborn care. A dense program of lectures will then lead the students to the discovery of basic and advanced tools for fetal biosignals processing, interpretation and automatic learning. Practical sessions with Matlab will allow the students to experience what they have learned in the theoretical lessons. Remarkably, several signal processing, information analysis and machine learning tools presented in the lectures can be adapted to solve other bioengineering problems, making this Summer School attractive also for students and young researchers working on different biomedical engineering applications.

The patrons of the event are: GNB - Gruppo Nazionale di Bioingegneria, IEEE Sensors Council Italy Chapter, IEEE EMB Italy Chapter, OIC - Ordine degli Ingegneri di Cagliari.

Students can present a poster, pertinent to the Summer School main topic, related to a short abstract presented to the school and distributed among the participants. A 100€ award to the best poster presented by an IEEE student member on topics related to the sensors and/or the associated data processing will be assigned by the IEEE Sensors Council Italy Chapter.

The Summer School registration fee is limited to 70 €. A discount of 20 € (final fee: 50 €) is recognized to IEEE, GNB, or OIC members providing a valid registration number.
