BIODEVICES is sponsored by INSTICC – Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication


The purpose of the International Conference on Bio-Devices is to bring together researchers and practitioners from electronics, mechanical engineering, physics and related areas who are interested in developing, studying and using innovative materials, devices and systems inspired by biological systems and/or addressing biomedical requirements. Monitoring and diagnostics devices, sensors and instrumentation systems, biorobotics and prosthetics, micro-nanotechnologies including microfluidics systems and biomaterials are some of the technologies addressed at this conference. The fabrication and evaluation of biodevices, including wearable and implantable devices is also addressed.

BIODEVICES encourages authors to submit papers to one of the main topics indicated below, describing original work, including methods, techniques, advanced prototypes, applications, systems, tools or general survey papers, reporting research results and/or indicating future directions. Accepted papers will be presented at the conference by one of the authors and published in the proceedings. Acceptance will be based on quality, relevance and originality. There will be both oral and poster sessions.
The proceedings will be indexed by several major international indexers.
Special sessions are also welcome. Please contact the secretariat for further information on how to propose a special session.

Keynote Lecture 

Anatole Lécuyer 
Inria Rennes/IRISA, Hybrid Research Team 

Brief Bio 
Anatole Lécuyer is senior researcher and head of Hybrid team at Inria (Rennes, France), the French National Institute for Research in Computer Science and Control, that he joined in 2002. His main research interests are in the field of Virtual Reality, and more specifically on 3D User Interfaces, Haptic Feedback, 3D Visual Displays, and Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCI). He has been involved often as coordinator or principal investigator in various National or International research projects such as in OpenViBE software for Brain-Computer Interfaces, French ANR projects “OpenViBE1” (05-09) and “OpenViBE2” (09-12) on Brain-Computer Interfaces and Virtual reality, European Strep project “NIW” (08-11) on Augmented Walking, and the European Network of Excellence “INTUITION” (05-08) on Virtual Reality. He regularly serves as expert in Virtual Reality and BCI for public bodies such as European Commission (EC) or French National Research Agency (ANR). He is involved in program committees of major conferences of his field (IEEE VR, IEEE 3DUI, Eurohaptics, Eurographics, etc) and was notably program co-chair of IEEE VR 2015, and IEEE 3DUI 2013. He is an associate editor of Frontiers in Virtual Environments and Presence, and formerly of ACM Transactions on Applied Perception (ACM TAP) and International Journal of Human-Computer Studies (IJHCS).


Keynote Lecture 

Corina Sas 
Lancaster University 
United Kingdom 

Brief Bio


Dr Sas builds on extensive expertise is Human Computer Interaction and user experience to design technologies for wellbeing and health, including those for self-monitoring, self-awareness and self-regulation. She has been Associate Chair for the top ACM Computer Human Interaction and Designing Interactive Systems conferences, Chair of British Human Computer Interaction conference, and served in Programme Committees in over 20 conferences. Her work has received extensive media covers including The Times, The New Scientist, Daily Mail, CBS, NBC, Medical Daily, Science Daily, News medical, and Health Medicine Network, as well as San Francisco radio, BBC 5 live radio, and BBC Hereford and Worcester radio. For her work on technologies for mindfulness she was mentioned in the TransTech200 (2016): an annual list of key innovators developing science-based research that significantly increases mental and emotional wellbeing. She has over 80 peer-reviewed publications, and has been an investigator on grants totalling over £10.5 million.


Keynote Lecture 

Dinesh Kumar 
RMIT University 


Brief Bio 
Dinesh research interests are related to medical applications of signals and image processing and the use of machine learning to classify medical signals. He is a member of the expert panel for prosthetic hand control (EU supported committee) and member on Therapeutic Goods Administration the advisory panel to ministry of health for medical devices. Dinesh has also extensive experience in technology translation and been successful with two technology start-up ventures.

Dinesh has received over $4 million in research funds over the past 12 years in research funding. He has published over 400 papers and authored 3 books, and has been cited about 4400 times. He is Associate editor for IEEE Transactions for neural systems and rehabilitation engineering.

There has been significant progress in medical technology that provides early stage and detailed diagnosis of many diseases. This has enhanced the longevity and quality of life and we are now living longer and healthier, and significantly more independent. We are also able to perform relevant functional activities for significant period. However, many of these diagnostics can be performed only in major hospitals and require significant infrastructure such as qualified personnel, buildings, and electricity. This greatly limits the benefits of the technologies to be located in large urban centres.

Dinesh has been working towards changing the above paradigm and works for the development of diagnostic devices that are suitable for being used in remote regions by untrained healthcare personnel. Such devices provide automation of recording and analysis of the data, thereby do not require large buildings, and are suitable for the target audience. The success of such diagnostic devices is based on the development of advanced image and signal processing techniques that makes these devices noise tolerant and provide good quality diagnostics without high quality infrastructure.

This seminar, Dinesh will discuss the process and provide examples of such technologies.
