Dr. Simone Balocco is Associate Professor of the University of Barcelona, Departement of Mathematics and Informatics, and is senior researcher at the Computer Vision Center, Bellaterra. He obtained a PhD degree in Acoustics at the laboratory Creatis, Lyon and in Electronic and Telecommunication in MSD Lab, University of Florence (Italy). He performed a post-doc at the laboratory CISTIB, at the University Pompeu Fabra. Dr. Balocco main research interest are pattern recognition and computer vision methods for the computer-aided detection of clinical pathologies. In particular his research focuses on Ultrasound and Magnetic Imaging applications and vascular modelling. In 2011, Maria A. Zuluaga obtained her PhD degree from Universit Claude Bernard Lyon I investigating automatic methods for the diagnosis of coronary artery disease. After a year as a postdoctoral fellow at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (Grenoble, France), she joined University College London, in March 2012, as a Research Associate to work on cardiovascular image analysis and computer-aided diagnosis of cardiovascular pathologies. Since August 2014, she is part of the Image-guided fetal surgery project (GIFT-Surg) project as a senior research associate. Guillaume Zahnd received his engineering degree from the National Institutes of Applied Science (INSA-Lyon, France) in 2007, and obtained his PhD from CREATIS laboratory, University of Lyon (France) in 2012. In 2013, he joined the Biomedical Imaging Group Rotterdam, Erasmus MC (Netherlands) as a PostDoc researcher. From 2016, he is a research fellow in the Imaging-based Computational Biomedicine laboratory at Nara Institute of Science and Technology (Japan). His work focuses on image processing methodologies towards cardiovascular risk assessment. His field of interest includes vascular imaging, image-based biomarkers, ultrasound, intracoronary optical coherence tomography, motion tracking, contour segmentation and machine learning. Su-Lin Lee received the MEng. degree in information systems engineering and Ph.D. degree from Imperial College London, London, U.K., in 2002 and 2006, respectively, for her work on statistical shape modelling and biomechanical modelling. She is currently a Lecturer at The Hamlyn Centre for Robotic Surgery and the Department of Computing, Imperial College London. Her current research focuses on machine learning and shape modelling with application to guidance in cardiovascular interventions. Of particular interest to her are improved navigation and decision support for safer and more efficient robotic-assisted minimally invasive cardiovascular procedures. Stefanie Demirci is a Postdoctoral Researcher and Research Manager at Technical University of Munich (TUM), Germany. She received her Ph.D. degree from the same institution in 2011 for her work on novel approaches to computer assisted endovascular procedures. After being a Postodctoral Fellow at the SINTEF Medical Technology lab in Trondheim, N...
