International School on “Smart E-health”

With the rapid growth of medical imaging techniques, remote diagnosis methods and medical monitoring solutions, smart E-health has become an important subject in almost every aspect of our lives. Smart E-health systems are wide-spread in the modern medical field. These systems use a variety of biomedical signals including Electromyography (EMG), Force Myography (FMG), Electrical Impedance Tomography (EIT), Surface Electrical Impedance Myography (SEIM) and others for a number of different applications. The main focus of E-health is to create a modern and real-time health care system with cheaper, faster and more effective solutions for disease diagnosis, leading to healthier individuals living in healthier communities.

Within the framework of the project “International School on Smart E-health” funded by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and running in collaboration between the Chair of Measurement and Sensor Technology (MST) at Chemnitz University of Technology and Jordan University of Science & Technology (JUST) in Jordan, the MST is organizing an international school on smart E-health solutions and their applications. 

The “Smart E-health School” is a one-week school with intensive lectures and highly recognized experts in the field of bio-medicine and medical sensors technologies. From the 23rd of September to the 28th of September 2021, a complementary training (theoretical and practical) is organized to provide the opportunity for young researchers and students to gain new insights into this relatively new and highly relevant topic, and to get in contact with recent advances in the field and to keep in touch with industry trends.  

International experts will offer an intensive knowledge transfer for the participants in the field of smart health solutions with topics such as: body attached sensors in the E-health field, artificial intelligence in the biomedical field, IoT applications for biomedical field and smart solutions for medical imaging techniques.

In addition, students will have the opportunity to compete in a Smart E-health hackathon, where the participants have the opportunity to deal with applied research and elaborate innovative ideas for specific problems in the E-health field. It also presents a great chance for networking and meeting multidisciplinary scientists and experts.

The school is hybrid, open, and free of charge.
