General Chair:

Emmanouil G. Spanakis, Foundation for Research and Technology - Hellas (FORTH), Greece

is a Collaborating Researcher with the Computational Medicine Laboratory (CML) of the Institute of Computer Science, Foundation for Research and Technology - Hellas (FORTH-ICS). He is also a visiting lecturer at the Computer Science Department, University of Crete. He holds a B.Sc. and a M.Sc. in Computer Science and received his Ph.D. degree in Computer Science in 2009 from the University of Crete, Heraklion, Greece. His expertise, specialization and research lies in the wider scientific domain of computational medicine and wireless communication networks, and in particular on biomedical informatics; wireless medical sensors; ambient intelligence and smart surroundings; e-health and m-health related services; as well as in cross-layer design in wireless ad-hoc networks; wireless interference channel under SINR constrains; performance and analysis of mobile ad-hoc routing protocols; and wireless network measurements analysis.


General Co-Chairs:

Kostas Marias, Institute of Computer Science at FORTH (ICS-FORTH), Greece

holds a Principal Researcher position in the Institute of Computer Science (ICS-FORTH), and since 2010 he is the Head and Founder of the Computational Medicine Laboratory at FORTH-ICS (previously Biomedical Informatics Laboratory). During 2001-2003, he worked as a Researcher at the University of Oxford and from 2003-2006 as Associated Researcher at FORTH-ICS. He was the coordinator two EC projects on cancer modelling (www.contracancrum.eu andwww.tumor-project.eu), and during 2006-2013 worked in several EC funded projects developing ICT technology for personalized medicine. He coordinated the development of a wide range of image analysis and modelling tools (biomodeling.ics.forth.gr) designed for the clinical setting within the wider Virtual Physiological Human (VPH) EC initiative. He has published more than 100 papers in international journals, books and conference proceedings focusing on medical image analysis, biomedical informatics and modelling for personalized medicine
