Following the success of the 2018 edition, the Second International Summer School on Technologies and Signal Processing in Perinatal Medicine aims to present advanced tools for antenatal diagnosis and monitoring, from early pregnancy to labor.

The perinatal period ranges from the third trimester of pregnancy up to one month after birth. It is critical for the health of the baby since some problems arising in this period can affect the newborn’s entire life. Starting from the clinical aspects, the current trends in diagnostic and monitoring tools will be presented, introducing advanced signal processing and machine learning tools. In spite of the specificity of the school’s theme, many of the presented techniques also adapt to other contexts, thus allowing the students to acquire skills of general use in the biomedical engineering field.
