?? SPaM in Labour Workshop


2nd Signal Processing and Monitoring (SPaM) in Labour Workshop
Oxford, United Kingdom

30 October - 1 November 2017



This is an exciting new initiative to bring together experts in labour monitoring and fetal heart rate analysis to critically review and discuss current issues such as: new technology; comprehensive digital databases; statistical analysis; classification; clinical practice, fetal physiology and challenges. There will be plenty of time for questions and discussions. Post-doctoral, PhD and young researchers are most welcome. There will be a networking session with brief introductions from different research groups and excellent opportunities for socialising including a workshop dinner in a local restaurant.

There will be talks on the clinical aspects of labour monitoring and fetal physiology as well as computerised CTG and heart rate variability, and we will be looking into providing a truly multidisciplinary forum and spirit. The clinical and signal processing researchers can learn to understand each other and talk the same language.
