Ibis Group
Bioinspired Engineering and Computer Science for Health
Distributed Diagnosis and Home Health Care (D2H2), Cybernetics and Bionics, Medical Informatics, Biometry, etc
Grupo Ibis s1

Ibis emerges as a research group specialized in different areas dedicated to basic research and development of biomedical applications. The band members have extensive experience and a presence in the major national and international academic community and since 1993 has been working on the development of biomedical applications within the Department of Information Technology and Computing. Beginning in 1997, initial research of biological control, in particular the neuronal control of the lower urinary tract and the modeling of the pancreas. Subsequently the research expands following the incorporation of new researchers.

The areas of work within the group are mainly directed towards five aspects:

  •     Distributed Diagnosis and Health Care at Home (D2H2).
  •     Cybernetics and Bionics. Modeling and simulation of biological systems. More specifically, the systems of the human body and especially the lower urinary tract and pancreas.
  •     Bioinstrumentation and Rehabilitation Development of biomedical devices that improve the quality of life of patients.
  •   Medical Informatics. Using artificial intelligence techniques and vision in the field of medicine, having made several contributions applicable to biomedical image origin (diagnosis and classification). Development of strategies to improve medical management in both aspects of accessibility and security applications. Aspects of telemedicine and ubiquitous computing are also addressed.
  •     Biometrics.

Besides the band members, external partners are also active as doctors and other professionals, forming a multidisciplinary team that addresses tasks both basic and applied research.

The research group of industrial computing and computer networks has developed a crucial role in the implementation and consolidation of the area of %u200B%u200Barchitecture and computer technology at the University of Alicante, in the training of researchers and scientific production itself . This is a research group of great activity where you have formed 15 doctors, which is continually incorporating new fellows to be trained as researchers, or collaborating in numerous research projects conducted or agreements with companies to transfer technology derived research developed.

For over ten years we have focused our efforts on developing a set of lines of research in order to form a suitable platform to conduct project research and innovation in line with expectations provide support and dynamic instrument industrial and production system. Those lines: image processing and vision, robotics, computer networks, low-level processing, knowledge modeling, biomedical informatics and industrial computer, have led in turn to the respective research groups that currently make up the department information technology and computing.

The research approach we do, then, is the confluence of technologies of information, communication and control (TICC) to provide knowledge and to hone transdisciplinary approach solutions in the sector that we consider most future expansion.

The high qualification achieved throughout that journey has led to the current focus of the group is specified in the integration of services aimed at providing proactive, consistent with modern concepts of ambient intelligence systems, wherever they expected increased demand for technologies advanced in the years ahead: housing and buildings.

The research approach we do, then, is the confluence of technologies of information, communication and control (TICC) to provide knowledge and to hone transdisciplinary approach solutions in the sector that we consider most future expansion, consistent with current standards of accessibility and sustainability.

The impact of our research on the educational aspects is specified, along with the rest of the department of Computer Technology in the Master in Digital Home and Official The Master of Information Technology organized by the University Institute of Research in Computer Science.

The research group in CAD%u200B/CAM/CAE, University of Alicante is a young group that started as an initiative of a number of professors from the Departments of Computer Technology and Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence. The group is currently composed of 8 researchers, including 6 doctors working on the theme of technologies Design and Manufacturing Computer Assisted (CAD / CAM) and in the design and implementation of architectures specific processing (SoC FPGA , ...) and more specifically in the adaptation of machines (tools) to standard STEP-NC, rapid prototyping, virtual prototyping, customization of products, protection of intellectual property of CAD / CAM / CAE applications and hardware acceleration algorithms.

For over a decade the group staff has been working in collaboration with the Technological Institute for Footwear and Related (INESCOP) through its participation in numerous university-industry conventions as well as public projects financed by the Ministry of Science and Technology and by the Generalitat Valenciana. Currently he is also working with the Technology Center Furniture and Wood in the Region of Murcia (CETEM) through various agreements and projects.

In the part of specific architectures, include collaborations with the Institute of Optics of the Centre for Scientific Research (CSIC) and the group of Bioingeniría UMH, acceleration of image processing algorithms to FPGA. In the same line you are working on design and implementation of hardware / software techniques for fault tolerance against radiation FPGA embedded systems in aerospace vehicles, particularly satellites, through various public projects (RENASER and RENASER +) in cooridnación with the University of Sevilla and the Carlos III University of Madrid.

Among researchers there are four headlines University, a Contract Professor Doctor and three Associate Professors, as well as external partners, trainees and technical support staff. In total, the group has positive assessment in eight research sections (six-year). It has more than fifty articles published in international journals, which are prestigious international journals such as Computer Aided Design, Computers in Industry, Journal of Systems Architecture or Neurocomputing. In addition staff group has more than 30 publications in book chapters and participation in conferences nationally and internationally.

The staff involvement UNICAD group research projects is reflected in public research projects between national, regional, local and private projects with companies, as well as participation in a European project.
