Workshop on Innovation on Information and Communication Technologies (ITACA-WIICT 2021)
Scope and purpose
The ITACA-WIICT is a meeting forum for scientist, technicians and other professionals who are dedicated to Information and communication technologies study and research. Its fundamental scope is to promote the contact among scientific and professionals, improving the cooperation as well as the technological transfer among professionals.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: Biomedical Informatics, Biomedical Engineering, Traffic control Systems, eHealth and Wellbeing, Microwaves, Radar and Radio Localization, Engineering in Electromagnetic Compatibility, Telecommunications, Wide Area Networks, Sensor Networks, Fault Tolerant Systems, Embedded Systems and Underwater Communications.
Due to the COVID pandemic, the 2021 edition will have a different approach. Researchers of the ITACA institute have prepared videos in which they show their areas of knowledge and research with the aim of bringing research closer to society and possible collaborators. In this sense, the WIICT pretends to be a kind of continuation of the 2021 European Researchers’ Night, which takes place just before the start of WIICT 2021, on September 24.
In this edition we want to show the impact of investigators' work on people's daily lives. In this way we want society to be aware of the importance of research to build a better world. Moreover, we want to engage more young people in the researcher world, increasing the interest of them in scientific careers.
This edition is also intended to be a tribute to one of our young researchers, Ferran Mocholí, who unfortunately passed away this year.
Smart Electronics and Networks (SEN)
SEN has an extensive experience in the design and implementation of intelligent monitoring and control systems, the development of hardware devices, their embedded applications, and their integration through various communication technologies in Cloud IoT platforms. SEN works on multiple fields, among which we can mention smart cities, environmental care, green energy and smart hospitals.
Medical Imaging (IBIME-MI)
IBIME-MI has been working for the last 20 years in the processing and analysis of medical images, with special emphasis on magnetic resonance images of the human brain. IBIME-MI has developed and transferred many state-of-the-art methods for quantitative neuroimaging. Volbrain is an online system for automatically analyzing MRI brain data to provide volumetric information of different brain structures.
