The International Summer School on Technologies and Signal Processing in Perinatal Medicine aims to present the issues inherent in the technologies applied to perinatal medicine, specifically intending the period from the third trimester of pregnancy up to one month after birth. Why this choice? Because pregnancy is a critical time for the health of the mother and the fetus, with important risks for both. Starting from the clinical aspects, the necessary diagnostic tools will be identified according to current clinical standards and explaining the operating principle, signal acquisition techniques, signal processing algorithms for the extraction and analysis of information of interest, including automatic interpretation. In spite of the specificity of the school’s theme, many of the techniques of analysis of the signals shown also adapt to other contexts, thus allowing the students to acquire skills of general use in the biomedical field.
