Second BIOART Seminar "Signal Processing in Biomedical Engineering" at the Madrid Polytechnic University (Spain)

From January 28 to February 1, 2019 in the framework of the international project “Innovative Multidisciplinary Curriculum in Artificial Implants for Bio-Engineering BSc / MSc Degrees (586114-EPP-1 -2017-1-ES-EPPKA2-CBHE-JP) » (BioArt) was held training at the Madrid Polytechnic University (Universidad Politecnica de Madrid (UPM), Madrid, Spain). The delegation of the Vinnitsa National Technical University was represented by Head of the Institute of Master, Postgraduate and Doctoral Degree Studies, Professor of Materials Strength and Applied Mechanics Department, Doctor of Sciences, Oleksandr Hrushko, Head of the Higher Mathematics Department, Doctor of Sciences, Volodymyr Mihalevich, Prof. of Biomedical Engineering Department, PhD, Serhii Tymchyk.

During the seminars, UPM teachers conducted a course of teaching trainings on new BioArt curricula for teachers from Ukraine and Israel. BioArt trainings were conducted in UTM laboratories (Center for the Theory of Signals and Communications Laboratories, Center for Biomedical Technologies, School of Telecommunications) using modern biomedical equipment. Participants were introduced to the organization of the educational process at UPM, provided methodological materials to improve the training courses, familiarized them with the laboratory base and research directions of UPM.

On January 28, the project participants gathered at the High School of Telecommunications Systems Engineering UPM. (Escuela Tecnica Superior de Ingenierıa in Sistemas de Telecomunicacion, ETSIST). A report on the results, achievements and prospects of the project was made by the coordinator of the BIOART project, prof. D. Luengo. The project participants had the opportunity to become more familiar with the programs in the field of biomedical engineering, experience in the preparation and implementation of international projects and research at the Catholic University of Leuven "KU Leuven" (presentation was presented by Associate Professor P. Arras).

On January 29, ETSIST representatives was made presentations of the institution and programs for the preparation of bachelors, masters and PhDs. In the department of the theory of signals and communications, participants were shown anechoic and reverberation chambers, a radio frequency laboratory, an acoustics laboratory, a recording studio, an imaging laboratory, and a television recording studio. The training participants were introduced to the Telecommunications Museum and the «Digital Home» Laboratory.

On January 30, the training participants visited the UPM Center for Biomedical Technologies (Biomedical Technology Center), where G. Guinea, Director of the Center, and his Deputy F. Rojo, , made a presentation of the scientific developments of the center and did familiarization with the work of the Center’s laboratories (of cognitive neuroscience, magnetoencephalography, biomaterials and regenerative engineering, bioinstrumentiv). In the Higher Technical School of Telecommunications Engineering (Escuela Tecnica Superior de Ingenierıa de Telecomunicacion, ETSIT), where the school was presented, presents the following laboratories: an anechoic chamber, an institute of optoelectronic systems and microtechnologies, and a living house “Smart Home” laboratory.

On January 31, training participants worked at ETSIST. The following presentations were made at the seminar:

  • - the means of online learning (delivered by E. Shmouli),
  • - the issue of coverage of the project results in the collection reports (S. A. Subbotin),
  • - sensors (C. Benavente),
  • - signal recognition methods (H. Guttieres-Arriola, R. Fray),
  • - digital processing of biomedical signals (D. Luengo),
  • - ECD signal processing (D. Luengo),
  • - biometrics (D. Meltzer).

Also was deliberation and discussions between project partners were held.

On February 1, the final meeting was take place at the UPM Graduate Technical Industrial Engineering School (Escuela Tecnica Superior de Ingenierıa Industrial, ETSII). The project participants heard the presentation of the school and got acquainted with the material and technical base:

  • - laboratories of power electronics,
  • - laboratories of robotics and intelligent machines,
  • - design laboratories in bioengineering,
  • - laboratories of the Research Center for Automation and Robotics,
  • - the center of industrial electronics.

The final discussion of the results of the training took place.

According to the results of the 2nd BIOART Workshop, which was held at UPM, a number of events were organized at VNTU to disseminate the experience gained and develop the project at VNTU.
