Ana Fred
Instituto de Telecomunicações and University of Lisbon
Portugal


Brief Bio
Ana Fred received the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering, in 1989 and 1994, respectively, both from Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), Technical University of Lisbon, Portugal. She is a Faculty Member of IST since 1986, where she has been a professor with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and more recently with the Department of Biomedical Engineering. She is a researcher at the Pattern and Image Analysis Group of the Instituto de Telecomunicações. Her main research areas are on pattern recognition, both structural and statistical approaches, with application to data mining, learning systems, behavioral biometrics, and biomedical applications. She has done pioneering work on clustering, namely on cluster ensemble approaches. Recent work on biosensors hardware (including BITalino – and ECG-based biometrics (Vitalidi project) have been object of several nacional and internacional awards, as well as wide dissemination on international media, constituting a success story of knowledge transfer from research to market. She has published over 160 papers in international refereed conferences, peer reviewed journals, and book chapters. ... More >>

Brief Bio
Dr Bruno Wacogne is a CNRS Research Director at the FEMTO-ST Institute (one of the biggest Science and Technologies laboratory in France) where he was the head of the "Photonics for medical instrumentation" team before to join the BioMicroDevices group. He created and is now leading the Biom'@x transversal axis "Science et technology for personalized medicine" within this Institute. In 2010, at the request of Besançon University Hospital, he applied and has been awarded a Translational Research Fellow position from the National AVIESAN Alliance. This is a supplementary position that allows him to be at the interf ace between the health activities at the FEMTO-ST Institute and the Clinical Investigation Center in Technological Innovation at Besançon University Hospital. At the hospital, he is now the technological supervisor of the institution and the head of "Microsystems and biological qualification" unit. His research interests concern translational research, science and technology for health and more precisely immuno-combined medical devices, biological qualification devices and biomedical optics. He author or co-author of over 230 communications among which about 30 invited conferences. He is regularly chairman in international conferences. He has been awarded several times: Gold Micron at the International MICRONORA Workshop in 2006, Best Poster Award at the 2nd International Conference on Bio-sensing Technology in 2011, and Best Paper Award at the 13th International Conference on Biomedical Electronics and Devices in 2020. ...
