    Barcelona VPH Summer School 2016, May 30th - June 3rd, 2016

    Dept. Information and Communication Technologies, Universitat Pompeu Fabra – Virtual Physiological Human Institute

    Information and registration:

    This Summer School provides a thorough overview and hands-on experience in state-of-the-art Virtual Physiological Human (VPH) research. The key concepts of this methodological and technological framework will be presented using illustrative cases and enriched with hands-on analysis under supervision of the experts.

    The Summer School is jointly organised by the Philips - UPF CardioFunXion Marie Curie European Industrial Doctorate Program and The Virtual Physiological Human Institute, and the support of the Spanish Network of Excellence in Biomechanics.

    Students and Technicians Early Registration. 100 EUR
