Annual Scientific Meeting 2022
We look forward to welcoming our FUSE Community to our next Annual Scientific Meeting being held on:
Tues 21st and Wed 22nd June 2022
We are proud to have our Annual Scientific Meeting sponsored by the following FUSE partners:
Our Annual Scientific Meeting brings together our FUSE community of students, academics and partners to share PhD/EngD research projects, academic areas of expertise and latest research and hearing our External Partners sharing their experiences in Ultrasound technology development, along with the opportunity to network meeting old friends and colleagues and making new connections – something we have all missed these last couple of years.
We are delighted to have our keynote speakers as follows:
Professor Dugald Cameron OBE / Keynote: Tuesday 21st June (in-person)
Professor Dugald Cameron, OBE FCSD FRSA is a Scottish artist and industrial designer. Cameron was born in Glasgow in 1939 and raised near Clydebank, attending the High School of Glasgow. He obtained both a DA and a Postgraduate Diploma from Glasgow School of Art. He subsequently worked as a freelance industrial designer, during which time he designed a prototype medical ultrasound machine, the Lund machine (aka the Sundén machine, after Bertil Sundén of Lund University, who commissioned it), and the production version, the Diasonograph, working with medical physicist Tom Brown.
Professor Lorena Pardo / Keynote: Wednesday 22nd June (virtual)
She studied (1977-1982) and got her degree in Physics at the School of Physics of the “Universidad Complutense de Madrid”. She joined the Department of Ferroelectric Materials, Institute of Materials Physics of the Spanish “Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC)” in 1982. She was visiting graduate student at the Materials Research Laboratory, Pennsylvania State University, State College, PA, USA (1984-1985). She got her Ph.D. degree in Physics from the “Universidad Complutense de Madrid” in 1987 with her work at CSIC and become a Staff Member of CSIC in 1989. She is Research Professor at the Madrid Materials Science Institute (ICMM-CSIC) since 2008. She has authored or coauthored some 220 publications in the field of polycrystalline ferroelectric materials, processing, and multifunctionality.
She was the Spanish Leader in several projects of the European Commission (EC) in collaboration with European industries, universities and research laboratories on ferro-piezoelectric ceramics and, also, as thick films and on UV-assisted processing of thin films. She was involved in managing and scientific tasks in EU Networks (COST514 and 528, POLECER, MIND_NoE, CSA_PI). She contributed to establish the European Institute of Piezoelectric Materials and Devices (Piezoinstitute) in 2008. She was involved in the series of Conferences on Piezoelectrics for End Users since its origin (Interlaken , Switzerland, 2002) and Chair of the PIEZO2017 Conference in Cercedilla (Madrid). She become Chair of its Advisory Board (2019-2021) and at present she is Vicepresident of The Piezoinstitute (2021-).
