From the 4th to the 8th of July, the Science Museum hosts the 5th IT Campus Summer School
Jun 19, 2005
The course on Technology applied to health will be given on the 7th and 8th of July by Miguel Chavarría, in charge of implementing and monitoring x-ray data and digital imaging at the X-Ray Diagnosis Service of La Fe University Hospital. It will look into the current scope of telemedicine in Spain and analyse its future potential. This field largely focuses on the new disciplines emerging from the relationship between medicine and new technologies, such as tele-ophthalmology, telepathology and digital radiology.
Prestigious speakers such as Jesús Barriuso and José Luis Monteagudo will look at the models, agreements and standards adopted by health professionals in Light of what can be provided by industry. Luis Martín Bonmatí will analyse the specialisation processes undergone by telemedicine, from radiology to tele-ophthalmology, thanks to new information technology.
Finally, there will be a presentation on the practical applications that are already in use, from health networks for regions to the revolutionary treatment of chronic diseases and the transformation of a traditional home into an intelligent home providing remote medical care services.
Security in Wi-fi and Wimax networks will be held on the 4th and 5th of July and led by Santiago Felici, PhD in Telecommunications Engineering and Lecturer at the University of Valencia. This course will analyse the need to provide not only remote access to data but also secure access, as guaranteed security favours the development of new functions and capacities, which in turn requires more sophisticated technology.
IT Campus TI is the first science and technology summer school to be organised in Spain, providing training for professionals and university students immersed in the ever-changing World of ICTs. It is co-organised by the University of Valencia. From its beginnings, it has been supported by the Regional Government of Valencia and state institutions as well as many other Spanish and international organisations. It also has the support of research institutes such as the MIT Lab and Iowa State University.
