Kamrul Islam

Syed “Kamrul” Islam is giving a talk next week, one of many conferences he is participating in this year.

The chair of electrical engineering and computer science at Mizzou Engineering is scheduled to give a plenary talk during a workshop in Lugano, Switzerland, next week. Syed “Kamrul” Islam will present work around biomedical sensors for point-of-care health monitoring systems. He is one of four plenary speakers at the fifth annual Quantum & Biomedical Applications Technologies and Sensors workshop set for June 20-21.

“There is a lot of exciting work happening around sensors and technologies being used in health care,” Islam said. “This event brings together scientists from industry and academic institutes around the world to collaborate and share ideas. I’m honored to have been invited to give a plenary and look forward to hearing from other speakers during the event.”

Immediately after the workshop, Islam will present some of those new biomedical electronic technologies that his group has developed at the Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers’ Medical Measurements and Applications (2022 MeMeA) conference in Messina, Italy.

Specifically, Islam will present a paper on multi-sensor based automatic sleep apnea detection system for adults using neural network interface. Co-authors are Omiya Hassan, Tanmoy Paul, Rushil Thakker, Dilruba Parvin, Md Maruf Hossain Shuvo and Abu Saleh Mohammad Mosa.

He will also present work around machine learning embedded smartphone application for early-stage diabetes risk assessment. Co-authors are Md Maruf Hossain Shuvo, Nafis Ahmed, Humayera Islam, Khuder Alaboud, Jianlin Cheng and Abu Saleh Mohammad Mosa.

The IEEE Medical Measurements & Applications event will run through June 24.

In March of this year, Islam networked with other department chairs at the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department Heads Association (ECEDHA)’s annual conference and expo in New Orleans. He also attended discussions, sessions, seminars and talks and an industry expo. Then, in May, Islam  presented his group’s work on automatic sleep detection system at the International Instrumentation and Measurement Technology (I2MTC  2022) Conference in Ottawa, Canada.

Islam is director of the Analog/Mixed Signals VLSI and Devices Laboratory.
