BIOSTEC Conference Co-Chairs


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 >>

Program Chair


Katja Bühler
VRVis
Austria
medvis.vrvis.at


Brief Bio
Katja Bühler is Scientific Director of the VRVis Research Center in Vienna, Austria. She completed her studies in Mathematics at KIT, Karlsruhe, Germany and holds a PhD in Computer Science from TU Wien, Austria. In 2003 she became head of the Biomedical Image Informatics Group at VRVis. She is member of the management board of Austrian Bioimaging and associate editor of Computers and Graphics, the Visual Computer and Frontiers in Bioinformatics. Katja’s scientific roots are in reliable computing, numerics and geometry processing. Today's focus of her research is on the development of highly efficient methods to p rovide access to information encoded in biomedical images with the aim to accelerate image-based decision making. For this purpose, she is fusing expertise in image processing, machine and deep learning, high performance computing, data mining, visualization and human computer interaction to novel visual computing solutions for medicine and life science. Research results of her group received numerous scientific awards and resulted in several patents. The software emerged from the groups research is helping radiologists, radiotherapists and surgeons to cope with multi-modal images and diagnostic tasks in their daily clinical routine. The e-science platform Brain* addresses the urgent need to manage and exploit image intense data collections and accelerates multi-omics and image-based research of neuroscientists. ... More >>
