Join our second Neurons.AI Madrid event! (LIMITED CAPACITY)
Based on high interest during and after our first meeting, we'll focus this event on AI for healthcare and medical imaging. And we'll have a very special keynote speaker coming from the UK: Prof. Alejandro Frangi, Diamond Jubilee Chair in Computational Medicine at University of Leeds (UK), and Chairman of the MICCAI’18 event, one of the best global events gathering >1500 experts in AI/ML for medical imaging from all over the world (*full bio below).
Prof. Frangi will share unique insights and examples based on his broad experience leading research teams and projects in this field, both in Spain and more recently/currently in the UK (since 2011).
This special ocassion, we'll meet in a great venue/auditorium hosted by ISDI, a leading business school in the digital space.

[This event will be in: SPANISH -- Evento en CASTELLANO]

**Biography of Keynote Speaker: Prof Alejandro F Frangi

Prof Frangi is Diamond Jubilee Chair in Computational Medicine at the University of Leeds, Leeds, UK, with join appointments at the School of Computing and the School of Medicine. He leads the Centre for Computational Imaging and Simulation Technologies in Biomedicine.

Born in Argentina, he obtained his degree in Telecommunications Engineering from the Technical University of Catalonia (Barcelona) in 1996 and pursue his PhD in Medicine at the Image Sciences Institute of the University Medical Centre Utrecht University on model-based cardiovascular image analysis.

Prof Frangi's main research interests lay at the crossroad of medical image analysis and modelling with emphasis on machine learning (phenomenological models) and computational physiology (mechanistic models). His highly interdisciplinary work has been translated to the areas of cardiovascular, musculoskeletal and neuro sciences.

He's been principal investigator or scientific coordinator of over 25 national and European projects, both funded by public and private bodies. Prof Frangi has edited several books, published 7 editorial articles and over 200 journal papers in key international journals of his research field and over 230 book chapters and international conference papers with an h-index 53 and over 19,900 citations according to Google-Scholar.

He has been General Chair of MICCAI (Intl Conf on Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Interventions) in 2018, Programme Committee Member of various MICCAI editions, International Liaison of ISBI 2009, Tutorials Co-Chair of MICCAI 2010, and Program Co-chair of MICCAI 2015. He was also General Chair for ISBI 2012 held in Barcelona.

Prof Frangi is Chair of the Editorial Board of the MICCAI-Elsevier Book Series [masked]), and serves as Associate Editor of IEEE Trans on Medical Imaging, Medical Image Analysis, SIAM Journal Imaging Sciences, Computer Vision and Image Understanding journals.
