PhD Courses in Denmark

3rd symposium on the advances in biomedical engineering and neuroscience (2024)

Doctoral School in Medicine, Biomedical Science and Technology at Aalborg University

Welcome to 3rd symposium on the advances in biomedical engineering and neuroscience



DescriptionThe course has a focus on disseminating the most relevant and recent achievements within biomedical and engineering science to address relevant health care problems. This course will be organized annually and will include a series of lectures from internationally recognized speakers and from speakers from Aalborg University that are experts within the field. During the symposium, some time will be dedicated to the facilitation of interaction between the speakers and participants. The detailed agenda of the course will be provided on the course web site. Main topics can include electrophysiology, psychophysics, bio-signal processing, biostatistics, rehabilitation technology, machine learning, physiological modeling, decision support, big data, image analysis and computational neuroscience but also topics relevant for the life as a PhD student such as management of a research project, risk analysis and mitigation, etc.


Literature: Relevant journal articles and book chapters related to the specific talks will be announced shortly before the course.


Prerequisites: The course targets PhD students of the Program in Biomedical Engineering and Neuroscience and other PhD students working within these areas. The course is repeated every year with a different focus, thus participation to the previous edition does not preclude participation in this edition.


Evaluation: A poster session will be organized during the symposium. PhD students will bring and present a poster on their own work (it is allowed to bring a poster presented at another conference or meeting).
