25. January 2019, INFANS Kick-off Meeting, Berlin

Training Courses

Outreach Activities

Prof. Sabine Van Huffel is theme keynote speaker on the topic “Neural Signal Analysis‘” at the 41th annual IEEE Symposium of the Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBC 2019), Berlin, July 23-27, 2019 (about 3000 participants).

In the framework of the 3-annual exhibit “Mile of Technology” / “Lange Nacht der Technik” at the Technische Universität Ilmenau on 11.05.2019, live demonstrations on various bio signal acquisition technologies including electroencephalography were performed by project fellows of the INFANS project, using dry electrode technology, visual stimulation as well as online artefact rejection and source reconstruction. The future requirements, advantages and potential new applications of novel dry biosignal electrodes for the use within the INFANS project have been demonstrated and discussed showing several prototypes of previous projects. Impacts on current and future research were highlighted in relation to other ongoing projects at the Institute of Biomedical Engineering and Informatics (BMTI). The event was open to a broad public audience of more than 15 000 visitors,  including families, school and university students, scientists, media representatives and journalists. To summarize, the feedback on the research and education at the BMTI as well as in the frame of the INFANS project was very positive.

Prof. Haueisen gave an invited lecture (about 250 participants) at the 2nd China Symposium on “Cognition and Brain Regulation” 2019 entitled „Analysis of large EEG data sets: online analysis and deep learning“ in Shanghai, China, 28.04.2019.

In the framework of the “open doors” of the Technische Universität Ilmenau on 13.04.2019 live demonstration on electroencephalography and online brain activity reconstruction were performed using single dry electrodes and cap prototypes. The dry electrode caps will form the basis for the development of electrode caps for infants within the INFANS project. The presentations included guided lab tours and live demonstrations for approx. 25 groups of about 5-10 persons each. Furthermore, the INFANS project was covered as an example research project in two general talks on research and education at the BMTI (45 min, audience 200 people each). The audience included future students, current students, parents and employees of the university.

On 05.04.2019, Prof. Haueisen gave a lecture entitled “Bioelectric and biomagnetic signals of the brain” to the general public (about 80 participants) in the frame of the academy for senior citizens.

Prof. Sabine Van Huffel gave an Invited Talk “Processing human brain signals: Algorithms and Applications”.  f-tales symposium on ``Neuro-sense and sensibility: Advances in sensing, analyzing , and curing the brain'', Leuven, April 1-2, 2019 (about 200 participants).” 

On the occasion of the visit of Minister of Health of Thuringia, the vice minister of Health of Lithuania, and the Councillor of Mazovia on 01.04.2019 in Ilmenau, Prof. Haueisen gave a talk entitled “Individualized rehabilitation techniques for patients with acquired brain damage using telemedicine” (about 30 participants) and discussed with political stakeholders on novel approaches to brain measurements.

Prof. Haueisen gave a talk entitled “Biomedical Engineering research at TU Ilmenau” (about 20 participants) at the Universitas Indonesia (UI), Jakarta, Indonesien, 08.03.2019.

Prof. Haueisen gave an invited lecture entitled “The future of Biomedical Engineering” (about 30 participants) at the Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM), Johor Bahru, Malaysia, 05.03.2019.

Prof. Sabine Van Huffel and Prof. Gunnar Naulaers attended The 11th International Conference on Brain Monitoring & Neuroprotection in the Newborn on February 7 – 9, 2019 at the Sheraton Sand Key, Clearwater Beach, FL, USA and presented 4  posters on neonatal brain monitoring research.”

Prof. Haueisen gave an invited lecture (about 60 participants) at the ChildBrain conference 2019 Leuven, Belgium

Prof. Haueisen gave an invited lecture (about 60 participants) at the ChildBrain conference 2019 entitled „Dry multipin electrodes for Electroencephalography“ in Leuven, Belgium, 06.02.2019.
