Christian Mata defends his PhD thesis “Web-based Application for Medical Imaging Management”

The rapid growth of digital technology in medical fields during the last few years has increased the need for applications able to manage patient medical records, imaging tests, and chart information. Technologies related with digital database architectures, storage and transmission protocols, management of large volumes of data, and security are being improved every day, allowing the possibility of reading, analyzing, and even diagnosing a case far from the medical center where the information was acquired. Furthermore, the inclusion of web-based applications applied to the medical imaging field has growing demand over the last few years in the medical community. The…

International Experience: Juan David Hernández

“Four months in the United States. Working with motion planning experts” In 2013, I started evaluating different alternatives for planning collision-free paths for Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs). During such review, I decided to use the Open Motion Planning Library (OMPL), a C++ programming library that consists of many of state-of-the-art sampling-base planning algorithms, which is developed at Rice University, in Houston, Texas. For more than one year, I focused on understanding the most relevant methods and integrating them to our vehicles’ control architecture in Girona. As a result, GIRONA500 and, specially, SPARUS-II AUVs were able to conduct missions that required…

The experience to attend VISAPP and IAPR-MVA

In March and April, I had the opportunity to attend two different international conferences to present my work about 3D registration. The first one was the International Conference on Computer Vision Theory and Applications (VISAPP) in Berlin. It was my first time in a conference and the experience was overwhelming. We were arround 300 participants exchanging our work in progress. It was a little bit difficult to manage the schedule because there were five different lines of presentations, and many interesting papers to see. Maybe my inexperience in conferences was the reason. The second conference was the IAPR International Conference…
