We are very happy to announce the following keynote speakers for the 3rd International Conference on Biomedical Engineering and Systems (ICBES'16):

Dr. Zhongping Chen

University of California, Irvine, USA

Prof. Bart M. ter Haar Romeny

Eindhoven University of Technology, Netherlands

Dr. Zhongping Chen

Dr. Zhongping Chen is a Professor of Biomedical Engineering and Director of the OCT Laboratory at the University of California, Irvine. He is a Co-founder and Chairman of OCT Medical Imaging Inc. Dr. Chen received his B.S. degree in Applied Physics from Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 1982, his M. S. degree in Electrical Engineering in 1987, and his Ph.D. degree in Applied Physics from Cornell University in 1993.

Dr. Chen’s research interests encompass the areas of biomedical photonics, microfabrication, biomaterials and biosensors. His research group has pioneered the development of functional optical coherence tomography, which simultaneously provides high resolution 3-D images of tissue structure, blood flow, and birefringence. These functional extensions of OCT offer contrast enhancements and provide mapping of many clinically important parameters. In addition, his group has developed a number of endoscopic and intravascular rotational and linear miniature probes for OCT and MPM imaging and translated this technology to clinical applications. He has led numerous major research projects funded by NIH, NSF, DOD, and DARPA, including several interdisciplinary research projects such as the NIH Biomedical Research Partnership (BRP) grant and NSF Biophotonics Partnership Initiative grant. Currently, he is the principal investigator of three NIH R01 grants. He has published more than 200 peer-reviewed papers and review articles and holds a number of patents in the fields of biomaterials, biosensors, and biomedical imaging. He was a WCU Scholar under the Word Class University Program at National Pusan University of South Korea.

Dr. Chen is a Fellow of the American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE), a Fellow of SPIE, and a Fellow of the Optical Society of America.

Topic of Keynote: Acoustic Radiation Force Optical Coherence Elastography

Keynote Abstract

Prof. Bart M. ter Haar Romeny

Bart ter Haar Romeny (1952) is professor in biomedical image analysis. He has experience in biologically-inspired computer vision research and computer-aided diagnosis applications for over 25 years.

Bart M. ter Haar Romeny received the MSc degree in Applied Physics from Delft University of Technology in 1978, Ph.D. from Utrecht University in 1983 in biophysics. He became principal physicist of the Utrecht University Hospital Radiology Department. He was co-founder and associate professor at the Image Sciences Institute (ISI) of Utrecht University (1989-2001). From 2001, ter Haar Romeny is professor of Biomedical Image Analysis at the Department of Biomedical Engineering of Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands, and since 2011 is appointed distinguished professor at Northeastern University, Shenyang, China. He closely collaborates with many industries and (national and international) hospitals and research groups. Currently he is project leader of the Sino-Dutch RetinaCheck project, a large screening project for early detection of diabetic retinopathy in Liaoning, China.

He authored an interactive tutorial book on multi-scale computer vision techniques, edited a book on non-linear diffusion theory in computer vision and is involved in (resp. initiated) a number of international collaborations on these subjects. He is author/co-author of over 200 refereed journal and conference papers, 12 books and book chapters, and holds 2 patents. He supervised 29 PhD students, of which 4 graduated cum laude, and over 140 Master students. He is senior member of IEEE, associate member of the Chinese Brainnetome consortium, visiting professor at the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing, member of the Governing Board of IAPR, Fellow of EAMBES, and chairman of the Dutch Society for Pattern Recognition and Image Processing.

Topic of Keynote: What can we learn from the brain? Functional brain mechanisms for computer-aided diagnosis
