Keynote Speaker-----Edward J. Ciaccio
Edward J. Ciaccio Ph.D. is a computational biologist and biomedical engineer. Since 2010 he has been a faculty member in the Department of Medicine - Division of Cardiology at Columbia University Medical Center in New York City, and since 2014 he holds the top-level rank of senior research scientist. Dr. Ciaccio's main areas of research focus are biosignal analysis (cardiac electrophysiology), and bioimage analysis (videocapsule studies for celiac disease). Dr. Ciaccio has received an Established Investigator Award from the American Heart Association (1998) and a Paper of the Year Award from Heart Rhythm Journal (2008). He became editor-in-chief of Computers in Biology and Medicine, published by Elsevier, in January 2013. He is also an editorial board member for BioMedical Engineering OnLine, Heart Rhythm, Journal of Cardiovascular Electrophysiology, World Journal of Gastroenterology, and World Journal of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy. Dr. Ciaccio reviews for over 30 scientific journals and has published over 80 peer-reviewed articles in his field. His current research focus includes the development of a electrical activation wavefront curvature model of reentrant ventricular tachycardia. This work may also be applicable to the mechanism of induction and maintenance of other heart arrhythmias. He is also working on a book entitled 'Handbook of Intelligent Bioengineering Systems' which will include methods and results for fast analysis of biomedical data.
