Almo Collegio Borromeo, Pavia, University of Pavia, Italy
30th August-6rh September, 2015 (just after the IEEE-EMBS Conference in Milan!)



On behalf of the organizers of the 9th International Summer School on Biomedical Signal Processing of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society we have the pleasure to invite you to join us at the Almo Collegio Borromeo (Pavia, Italy) for an exciting and stimulating week of learning, teaching and brain storming on advanced biomedical signal processing methods for quantification of biosignal parameters and their integration.

The IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society has initiated a series of Summer Schools with the aim to provide the participants the state-of-the-art knowledge on emerging areas in biomedical engineering. As a part of these ongoing efforts, the 2015 edition of the IEEE-EMBS International Summer School will focus on tutorial presentations of the applications of the advanced signal processing methods and modelling for the information enhancement and classification in Central Nervous System studies and applications, with particular emphasis to Rehabilitation. Fusion of modelling and signal processing aspects will be considered, as well as fusion among different modalities for innovative approaches in Neurosciences, Brain-Computer Interface, Robotics and Prosthetic Devices.

Prominent experts in the area of biomedical signal processing, biomedical data treatment, medicine, signal processing, applied physiology will introduce novel techniques and algorithms as well as their clinical or physiological applications. Evening Poster Sessions are foreseen in which students themselves may exchange informally information about the main research activity in which they are involved. The best student poster will be also awarded.

We encourage engineers, medical researchers, biologists, computer scientists, physicists and applied mathematicians to join us and to learn about the recent developments in these biomedical signal processing tools. A few exciting social events will be also organized in which attendees will enjoy the beautiful environment as well as the historical and artistic traditions of the area.

The Summer School will be held at the Almo Collegio Borromeo, recognized by the Ministry of Education, Universities and Research as a “highly qualified Cultural Institute”. It is one of the two historic colleges in Pavia that stand out as prestigious institutions of the Lombardy-Veneto area. Collegio Borromeo was founded in 1561 by the estate of St. Charles Borromeo.

The Summer School of this year was intentionally organized just after the end of the IEEE-EMBS 2015 Conference in Milano for giving more opportunities to attend to both Faculties and Students. In fact, Pavia is just 35 km far from Milano and is easily reachable by train in half an hour.
