Keynote Lecture

Erik Meijering
Erasmus University Medical Center
Netherlands


Brief Bio
Erik Meijering was born in Heemskerk, the Netherlands, in 1971. He received a MSc degree (cum laude) in Electrical Engineering from Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands, in 1996, and a PhD degree in Medical Imaging from Utrecht University, the Netherlands, in 2000.
From November 2000 to September 2002 he was with the Biomedical Imaging Group of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL) in Lausanne, Switzerland. In October 2002 he joined the Biomedical Imaging Group Rotterdam of the Erasmus MC - University Medical Center Rotterdam, as an Assistant Professor. In June 2008 he became an Associate Professor in the same group. His research interests include many aspects of computer vision, image processing and image analysis, and their applications in cellular and molecular imaging.
He received a Best Paper Award from the Computer Vision Research Foundation (the Netherlands) in 1999. In 2000 he received a TALENT-stipend from the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO) for research on adaptive interpolation. Currently his main research subject is spatiotemporal modeling and segmentation of fluorescence microscopy images for the quantification and analysis of subcellular dynamical processes, for which he received a VIDI-grant from NWO for the period 2005-2010.
Dr. Meijering is a Senior Member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS), and the IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS). From 1997 to 2008 he was a member of the International Association for Pattern Recognition (IAPR). He was Special Sessions Chair for the 2002 and the 2004 IEEE International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging (ISBI), and Technical Program Chair for that meeting in 2006 and 2010. He was/is an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Medical Imaging (since 2004), the IEEE Transactions on Image Processing (term 2008-2011), and the International Journal on Biomedical Imaging (2006-2009), and was a Guest Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Image Processing for its September 2005 Special Issue on Molecular and Cellular Bioimaging. He also served/serves in a great variety of conference, advisory, and review boards.

Keynote Lecture

Nuno Sousa
University of Minho
Portugal


Brief Bio
Nuno Sousa (45 years-old, MD, PhD) is Full Professor at the School of Health Science,University of Minho. He is the Director of the Medical Degree at University ofMinho. He serves at several medical education and medical assessment advisoryboards.

He is a NeuroRadiologist. Presently, he is theDirector of the Clinical Academic Center at Hospital de Braga. He coordinatesand is involved in several national and international research projects.

He is the Coordinator of the Neuroscience ResearchDomain at ICVS/University of Minho. His research main interests are focused inthe establishment of functional and structural correlations mediated by stress andaging and its implications in cognition and in neuropsychiatric disorders. Detailed assessment of neuroplastic events, incorporation of newly generatedcells into neuronal networks, rearrangements of established dendritic andsynaptic contacts, combined with behavioural, neurochemical andelectrophysiogical, molecular biology and (epi)genetics correlates have beenestablished in his laboratory; the work from the lab covers from basic toclinical research and several modulatory interventions have also been describedin order to promote recovery of structure and function in neuronal tissues.

Nuno Sousa has published more than 150 peer-reviewed research articles. In addition to academic merits, Nuno Sousa serves on severalscience policy and advisory board positions, and as an Ad hoc reviewerfor various neuroscience journal and international funding organizations. He isEditor-in-Chief of Frontiers in Behavioral Neuroscience and Member of theEditorial Board of Molecular Neurodegeneration.

 Since May2011 Nuno Sousa is also the President of the Portuguese Society for Neuroscience.
