IEEE AIUB Student Branch in collaboration with IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS) and Department of Computer Engineering (CoE), Faculty of EngineeringAIUB successfully organized a seminar titled “Biomedical Signal Processing & Analysis Techniques: Challenges and Applications” at AIUB. The seminar focused on various types of artefacts and noises that are obtained during bio-signal recordings along with the ways of identifying those noises and the process of nullifying them from the raw data. The event was inaugurated by Prof. Dr. A.B.M Siddique HossainDean, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB; Advisor, IEEE AIUB Student Branch who initiated his speech by introducing the importance and different sectors of Biomedical Engineering and discussed how engineering skills can be applied to the advancement of healthcare equipment to diagnose, monitor and analyze diseases. He concluded his speech by encouraging the participants to build a career in Biomedical Engineering to help and modernize medicine and biological sectors for the betterment of mankind.

The seminar was conducted by Dr. Md. Kafiul IslamTechnical Program Chair, ICAEE 2019; Assistant Professor, Department of EEE, School of Engineering & Computer Science, Independent University Bangladesh (IUB). The speaker started the session by sharing his experience of different projects those he has been incorporated with. Later, he explained various techniques used for the analysis and processing of biomedical signals as well as different ways of improving the techniques. He discussed elaborately about various types of artefacts found in different Bio-signals recordings including EEG, ECG & EMG and explained different ways to identify these artefacts. He concluded his session by discussing some procedures of rectifying these artefacts including the challenges faced while doing so. Afterwards, an interactive question-answer session took place where enthusiastic participants fulfilled their queries.

The concluding speech was delivered by Dr. Mohammad Hasan ImamCounselor, IEEE AIUB Student Branch; Advisor, IEEE EMBS AIUB Student Branch Chapter; Sr. Asst. Professor, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB who talked about the promising future of Biomedical Engineering and discussed the wide range of research opportunities that Biomedical sector provides in modern times. Afterwards, Dr. Md. Hasan Imam handed over a crest and a certificate to the speaker Dr. Md. Kafiul Islam as token of appreciation and group photo was taken with all the participants. The seminar was graced by the presence of Dr. Md. Humayun KabirSr. Assistant Professor, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB and Kawshik ShikderMotivator, IEEE AIUB Student Branch; Asst. Professor, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB.
