 WS1 Biomedical Engineering: From Raw Biossignals to Intelligence


Coordinators: Hugo Silva & Hugo Ferreira

Target     Students and researchers starting or already working with physiological data 
To provide an end-to-end approach to biosignal acquisition, processing and classification using low cost and open source technologies

Physiological data has had a transforming role on multiple aspects of society, which goes beyond the health sciences domains to which they were traditionally associated with. While biomedical engineering is a classical discipline where the topic is amply covered, today physiological data is a matter of interest for students, researchers and hobbyists in areas ranging from arts, programming, engineering, among others. Regardless of the context, the use physiological in experimental activities and practical projects is heavily bounded by the cost and limited access to adequate support materials. In this workshop we will focus on low cost and open source tools that span all the main steps involved in biosignal acquisition ranging from touching the body to extracting meaningful information from the data.

WS2 Advanced Methods for non-invasive measurement of microcirculation

                                              Limited admissions (max: 15 persons for each session)
Preregistration required

Coordinators: Octavian Postolache & Gabriela Postolache

Students, researchers, clinical physiologists, physiotherapists, nurses, biomedical engineers starting or already working with physiological data
To focus practical aspects of  wearable devices and software used to study microcirculation in clinical as in experimental settings (Hands on)


Many studies reported that microvascular variables correlate with organ morbility, and that these variables would support the estimation and prediction of organ or system dysfunction, and even mortality. The technology that currently is used for the assessment of microvascular function (e.g., photopletismography, electrocardiography, inertial measurements units, force sensors, others) provide extensive information within an easy-to-use frame. New sensors, technologies and data analysis are dramatically expanding this universe. This workshops will explore various practical solutions for the in vivo study of  microcirculation
