Keynote speakers
Enrico Grisan
Dr Grisan graduated from Padova University as an Electrical Engineer in 2000 and finished his PhD in Bioengineering in 2004 at Padova University, in cotutelage with City University (London). He was a post-doc fellow at the Department of Information Engineering of the University of Padova, where he is assistant professor since 2008. His main research activities involve the automatic processing and analysis of medical images, either for extracting quantitative biomarkers of disease or for the development of computer aided diagnostic systems. He has worked in the development of methods for the processing and analysis of retinal and corneal images, the virtual histology from confocal endomicroscopy images, the detection and quantification of cortical lesion from multispectral brain MRI data, among other subjects. He is member of the IEEE-EMBC Technical Committee on Biomedical Imaging and Image Processing
Armin Schwartzman
Dr. Schwartzman graduated from Technion - Israel Institute of Technology, Electrical Engineering in 1995. He obtained his MSc in Electrical Engineering at the California Institute of Technology in 1996. He finished in 2006 the PhD program in Statistics at Stanford University. Dr. Schwartzman's research involves development of statistical methods for signal and image analysis, with biomedical and environmental applications. From June 2012 t Dr. Schwartzman has worked as Principal Investigator in the Project “Multiple testing methods for random fields and high-dimensional dependent data”. Among the interests of Dr Schwartzman are: Signal and image analysis; functional and manifold-valued data; high-dimensional data; modern multivariate statistics; large scale multiple testing; and applications in biomedicine and the environment. Nowadays, Dr. Schwartzman is an Associate Professor in Residence of the University of California in the department of Family Medicine and Public Health.
Sean Deoni
Dr. Sean Deoni is an associate professor of pediatrics (Research) in Brown University. He recevied a BSc. In Medical Biophysics in 1999 from the University of Western Ontario. In 2004 he obtained his PhD in Medical Biophysics at University of Western Ontario. From 2014 to 2016 Dr. Deoni worked as Director of Pediatric Radiology Research at Children’s Hospital Colorado and was an Associate Professor of Radiology in the University of Colorado. Dr. Deoni is the director of MRI Research in the department of Pediatrics in Memorial Hospital of Rhode Island and an Adjunct Professor of Engineering in the School of Engineering of Brown University. Dr. Deoni’s research focuses on developing and applying magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques to study early brain development. His current studies involve following the process of myelination in healthy infants and toddlers in relationship to behavioural development and exploring the varied environmental and genetic influences that shape these brain-behaviour relationships.
