Keynote Speakers

October 11-13, 2018  |  Bari, Italy |  Polytechnic University of Bari |

2018 3rd International Conference on Biomedical Imaging, Signal Processing (ICBSP 2018) will be held in Polytechnic University of Bari, Bari, Italy during October 11-13, 2018. The aim of ICBSP 2018  is to present the latest research and results of scientists related to Biomedical Imaging, Signal Processing topics. This conference provides opportunities for delegates to exchange new ideas and application experiences face to face, to establish business or research relations as well as to find global partners for future collaboration. We hope that the conference results constituted significant contribution to the knowledge in these up-to-date scientific fields.

He has been consultant on topics related to his research interests for both public agencies and privately owned companies. He has been responsible of national and European research projects.

Keynote Speaker II

Prof. Andrey S. Krylov
Lomonosov Moscow State University, Russia

Andrey Krylov received the M.S., Ph.D., and Dr.Sc. degrees from the Faculty of Computational Mathematics & Cybernetics, Lomonosov Moscow State University (CMC MSU) in 1978, 1982 (supervisor – academician Andrey Tikhonov), and 2009, respectively. He was a member of scientific staff (1981-1988), senior researcher (1988-1998), head scientist (1988-2003), associated professor (2003-2009) CMC MSU and he is currently professor, head of the Laboratory of Mathematical Methods of Image Processing (http://imaging.cs.msu.ru). During his career he worked in applied mathematics in areas of nuclear physics, physical chemistry of liquid systems, multimedia and biomedical imaging.
In 1989 he received the Leninsky Komsomol Scientific Prize - the highest prize for scholars in the USSR. He has authored or coauthored over 150 published papers. He served as a reviewer for several international journals and conferences; he was in the board of international and national conferences. For a long period of time he is one of the organizers of the GraphiCon conference - the main international computer graphics, computer vision and image processing conference in Russia.

Speech Title: "Fast Estimation of Downsampling Factor for Biomedical Image Registration "

An approach to fasten medical image registration algorithms is suggested. It is based on the preliminary estimation the possible downsampling factor before the registration. The estimation algorithm uses fast bidirectional empirical mode decomposition. An analysis and approvement of the method is performed by multiscale ridge analysis using retinal image database DRIVE, astrocyte images and images from Computed Tomography Emphysema Database. Proposed registration acceleration algorithm was tested for rigid registration methods with HeLa cells video data set.

Keynote Speaker III
