Dec. 8, 2021 — The Interdisciplinary Centre for Mathematical and Computational Modelling (ICM) at the University of Warsaw is proud to invite everyone to #VirtualICMSeminar with scientist, innovator, entrepreneur, pioneer and visionary Prof. Wiesław Nowiński, creator of “world’s most gorgeous” human brain atlases!
During the seminar, prof. Nowiński will share his experience in brain atlas creation and the development of atlas-enabled applications for neuroeducation, brain research, neurology, stroke, psychiatry, neuroradiology, and neurosurgery for deep brain stimulation. The event is free and will be held Thursday, December 16, at 4:00 pm CST. Register here.
The 21st century is the century of the brain and mind, and to gather, present, use, and discover knowledge about the brain, the brain atlases are employed. A recent tremendous brain atlas development in terms of content, functionality and applications has additionally been propelled by brain big projects. Prof. Wiesław Nowiński has created diverse human brain atlases, including research prototypes and 35 products licensed to 67 companies and institutions, and distributed in about 100 countries. These are anatomic, vascular, connectomic, functional and population-based atlases in health and disease. Wiesław Nowiński will share his experience in brain atlas creation and the development of atlas-enabled applications for neuroeducation (including a family of The Human Brain in 1492/1969/2953 Pieces atlases and the NOWinBRAIN brain image repository), brain research, neurology (3D Atlas of Neurologic Disorders), stroke (atlas-assisted decision making, diagnosis support in emergency room, and probabilistic stroke atlas for prediction), psychiatry, neuroradiology, and neurosurgery for deep brain stimulation.
Prof. Wiesław L. Nowiński, D.Sc., Ph.D. – scientist, innovator, entrepreneur, pioneer and visionary; science-medicine-art “bridge builder”; creator of “world’s most gorgeous” human brain atlases. Affiliated with the world’s top universities in the USA, China and Singapore, No 2 in MED and No 2, 6, 9 in ENG (Shanghai ranking). He has 580 scientific publications (h-index 48, i10-index 178 (Google Scholar), within world’s top 2% scientists (Stanford list)); 71 patents granted (23 US, 11 EP) and 68 patent applications filed (19 US, 21 EP). Created with his team 35 brain atlas products licensed to 67 companies and institutions, distributed in about 100 countries. Conferred with 45 awards, 30 from leading medical societies (two radiological Oscars, Pioneer in Medicine) and 3 for innovation (2014 European Inventor of the Year (within the top three)); named The Outstanding Pole in the world in 2012. Commemorated on a stamp issued by the Polish Post in 2018 to honor Polish inventors of the century (within two living inventors).
Virtual ICM Seminars in Computer and Computational Science
Since March 2020, more than 2,500 people have participated in virtual meetings organized by ICM (SCFE + 17 seminars) from almost all the time zones. The Supercomputing Frontiers Europe website with access to the SCFE and seminars’ recordings, has been viewed by more than 17k visitors from 122 countries. The organizer of meetings with outstanding scientists is the Interdisciplinary Centre for Mathematical and Computational Modelling –ICM University of Warsaw.
About the Interdisciplinary Centre for Mathematical and Computational Modelling (ICM), University of Warsaw (UW)
The Interdisciplinary Centre for Mathematical and Computational Modelling (ICM) University of Warsaw is involved in interdisciplinary scientific research based on mathematical modeling, computer simulations and modeling, multi-scale and large-scale calculations. The popular meteo.pl weather portal has been established by using ICM computed weather forecasts. ICM researchers study problems related to civil aviation (collaborating with ICAO), modeling of social processes and most recently working on ICM Epidemiological Model for the COVID-19 epidemic in Poland. ICM took part in securing access for Polish scientists to the entire body of scientific literature, including over 8,000 journal titles, by maintaining the Virtual Library of Science. ICM networking team has participated in a number of cutting edge networking solutions, both for high throughput and low latency requirements. Recently, ICM engineers have established a production 100Gbps connection over 12,375 4 miles CAE-1 (Collaboration Asia Europe-1) line between Warsaw and Singapore.
