Invited paper (PDF): Assisted living infrastructure (abstract)

Prof. Piotr Augustyniak is currently Head of the Multidisciplinary School od engineering In Biomedicine in AGH-University of Science and Technology in Krakow. He graduated in 1989 in electronic engineering and received the PhD degree in electronics (1995, with honors) and the DSc (habilitation) in automatics (2004) all from the Electrical Engineering Department AGH-University of Science and Technology, Krakow.
Since 1989 he works at the Institute of Automatics AGH-UST, Krakow, as research engineer, assistant professor, and since 2007 as associate professor. He is a leader of four research projects in biomedical engineering, mainly focused on a perceptual model of electrocardiogram and data-dependent signal representation. For 11 years he worked at Aspel SA, the Poland-biggest manufacturer of ECG equipment as research engineer. His scientific interests include hardware and software problems of biosignal processing; currently he is working on assisted living technologies and smart environment for elderly and disabled. He prototyped twelve acquisition and analysis systems for electrocardiography, electrooculography and electroencephalography. He published six books on electrodiagnostic signal processing, over 140 conference papers and was reviewer and program committee member of numerous international conferences.
Professor Augustyniak is member of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, of the International Society of Electrocardiology and of the Computers in Cardiology Society.
