First annual IEEE Region 1 / NYU-Poly / CCNY

IEEE Signal Processing in Medicine and Biology Symposium

Saturday, December 10, 2011

Polytechnic Institute of New York University - Brooklyn, NY

Download the Technical Program

Signal processing plays a broad role in the development of medical devices and in the analysis of physiological signals. This one-day symposium is intended to provide a forum for a discussion of ongoing research in the development and application of signal processing methods in medicine and biology. The symposium, sponsored by IEEE Region 1, NYU-Poly, and the City College of New York, promises to be a stimulating meeting on biomedical signal processing. This symposium is endorsed by the Biomedical Engineering Society.

Keynote speaker

  • William Bialek, Princeton University Fundamental physical limits in biological systems

Invited speakers

  • Simon Kelly, City College of New York - Continuous stimulation paradigms for attention and decision making
  • Elisa Konofagou, Columbia University - Physiologic cardiovascular strain and intrinsic wave imaging
  • Liam Paninski, Columbia University - Challenges and opportunities in statistical neuroscience
  • Bryan Conroy, Columbia University - Fusing Simultaneous EEG and fMRI via Linked Single-trial Variability
  • Eero Simoncelli, New York University - Optimal estimation in the human visual system
  • Mario Svirsky, New York University - Adaptation to a degraded signal improves speech perception by cochlear implant users

We invite engineers, scientists, practitioners, and students to submit papers for presentation in poster sessions or to attend the symposium which will be open to the public. Accepted papers will be published in IEEE Xplore online. The technical program, registration form, and directions will be posted online.

The topics for the symposium may include, but are not limited to:

  • Analysis of EEG, ECG, respiratory, and other biomedical signals
  • Linear, nonlinear, and adaptive filtering and prediction
  • Machine learning and classification
  • Synchronization, coherence, coupling, connectivity, and causality
  • Nonlinear dynamics and system modeling
  • Multi-sensor and array processing
  • Time-frequency and non-stationary signal analysis
  • Signal processing methods in bioinformatics
  • Medical imaging - image formation, analysis, etc
  • Component analysis (PCA, ICA, etc) and source separation
  • Brain-computer interfaces (BCI)
  • Artifact rejection
  • Biomedical instrumentation for novel signal measurement
  • Open problems, emerging techniques and applications
