Special Session on
Smart Embedded Biomedical Devices for In Situ Physiological Signal Processing
 - Smart-BIODEV 2016

21 - 23 February, 2016 - Rome, Italy

Within the 9th International Conference on Bio-inspired Systems and Signal Processing - BIOSIGNALS 2016


Aymeric Histace

Brief Bio
Aymeric Histace is a Full Professor with ETIS lab (ENSEA, University of Cergy-Pontoise, CNRS). He currently works at the DEP (Electronics and Physics Department) of École Nationale Supérieure de l'Electronique et de ses Applications (ENSEA). He is the head of the CELL team of ETIS lab, Director of the Research Dpt of ENSEA. His main research topics are Computer Vision, Signal and Image Processing in interaction with Natural Science, Engineering and Medicine, and Information Science. The current flagship projects he is working on are "Smart Videocolonoscopy" and "CAD-CAP" (Computer Aided Diagonis for CAPsule endoscopy). He has led more than 10 projects (as Principal Investigator) related to Computer Vision for Computer-Aided-Diagnosis during the last 10 years.
Olivier Romain
University Cergy Pontoise

Brief Bio
Olivier Romain is a Full Professor in the University of Cergy Pontoise - UCP, France since 2012. He was an associate professor in Polytech’Paris UPMC of the University of Pierre and Marie Curie (Paris 6) during 9 years. He is currently at the head of the electronic department of the ETIS laboratory (UCP). Previously, he holds an aggregation of the electronic from ENS Cachan, engineering degree from the Telecom Strasbourg School of engineer, MS degree from Louis Pasteur University, and PhD from Pierre and Marie Curie University, Paris, all in Electronics. His research interests are in system on chip for broadcast and biomedical applications. He focuses his research on designing software defined radio for multistandard receiver and smart embedded system for health. He is the author or coauthor of about 110 journal and conference papers.


Objective of this special session is to gather researchers in electronics and signal processing (including image processing) around the general topic of "Smart Embedded Systems" with application to in situ Health Monitoring. This research has gathered interest of the scientific community for the last 15 years and has opened new strategies of development for the Real-Time, Low-Power, In-Situ monitoring of physiological parameters. This Special Session will be the occasion to have an up-to-date overview of the most recent research activities in the particular domain of smart embedded/implantable devices and related signal processing capabilities for biomedical applications.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Electronics, signal/image processing
- Energy harvesting
- Embedded systems
- Biomedical applications
- Telemetry
- Smart implants
- Physiological signals analysis
- Biomedical sensors
