PAPELE 2017 Timetable 

09:00-10:00 Welcome and Keynote: Pervasive Health Monitoring
Ana Luisa N. Fred (Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Technical University of Lisbon)
Session Chair: Thomas Zinner

Ana Luisa N. Fred
Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), University of Lisbon, Portugal; Associate Professor with the Department of Biomedical Engineering at IST; Senior researcher with the Pattern and Image Analysis Group of the Instituto de Telecomunicações, in Lisbon. Her research interests include pattern recognition, machine learning, information theory, signal processing, artificial intelligence, and biomedical applications. She has done pioneering work on unsupervised learning, proposing the cluster ensemble approach known as Evidence Accumulation Clustering. She has actively been working in the design and implementation of low-cost sensor technology including the BITalino, now commercialized by PLUX (, and sensors embedded into everyday objects, such as keyboards and steering wheels. Exploration of these sensor data (including ECG and EDA), by means of signal processing and pattern recognition techniques have the simultaneous three-fold goals: human identification, health monitoring and disease prevention, and emotion assessment.
She has published more than 160 papers in international refereed conferences, peer reviewed journals, and book chapters. She is the editor of 30 books, with the proceedings of international workshops that she organized or co-chaired in the areas of pattern recognition, biomedical engineering, and artificial intelligence. She is Area Editor of the Pattern Recognition Journal (Elsevier).

Pervasive Health Monitoring
Technological innovation in the field of ubiquitous computing is revolutionizing how we, as individuals, perceive our own well-being. In the era of the IoT, sensors are at the core of wearables and applications aiming at wellbeing and fitness. Pervasive monitoring of physiological signals, such as the heart signal, and electrodermal activity, using sensors embedded into everyday objects (thus minimizing disruptions in the user’s routine), is a novel tendency.
This presentation addresses work developed by our group within the context of pervasive monitoring of health related data, under a three-fold scenario: identity, emotion and health assessment from biosignals. This entails a perspective of the design of intelligent, personalized systems that react and adapt according to individual patterns and emotional status of the user, under a preventive health care and early diagnosis framework. This encompasses a bio-cybernetic loop centered at the person, with technology, signal processing, data analytics and decision support systems intervening in a collaborative framework with the ultimate goal of early detection of abnormality and disease, and overall wellbeing. Privacy issues are addressed, in a multi-disciplinary framework.
