Seminar On Advancing Biological Oceanography with Inference-based Robotic Exploration of the Coastal Ocean

11 November 2013

Kanna Rajan, Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI), US

Room: Sala S1 / DCC-FCUP

Persistent under-sampling of complex coastal ocean processes has resulted in calls for new
methods to approach the sampling problem. Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) have been
used over the last few years to observe dynamic events such as blooms, anoxic zones and ocean
fronts. However they had till recently, been stymied with the use of simple reactive approaches
which depended on a priori “plans” which prevented any substantiative adaptation of mission
structure to deal with opportunistic science and other unanticipated events.

Special Track on "Emerging Smart Technologies for Individualised Healthcare" in CBMS2013

20 June 2013

The current technological developments and the increasing willingness of people to be involved in making decisions about their health or disease, have been paving the way for advances in the area of individualised healthcare.

The uncertainty and complexity within this area require smart solutions and systems, which are capable to interpret context-specific information concerning the patient and his/her environment.

In this special track, we seek high quality contributions and innovations in the interdisciplinary area of smart healthcare technologies. The track is an integral part of the 26th International Symposium on Computer-Based Medical Systems (CBMS 2013), held at the University of Porto, Portugal on 20-22 June 2013.
