Spam workshop 2
2nd Signal Processing and Monitoring (SPaM) in Labour Workshop, Oxford, United Kingdom, 2017.


The Signal Processing and Monitoring (SPaM) in Labour workshop is a bi-annual event, held since 2015. It is an exciting initiative to bring together experts in labour monitoring and fetal heart rate analysis to critically review and discuss current issues such as: new technology; comprehensive digital databases; statistical analysis; classification; clinical practice, fetal physiology and challenges. There are talks on the clinical aspects of labour monitoring and fetal physiology as well as computerised CTG and heart rate variability, and we are providing a truly multidisciplinary forum and spirit. There is ample time for questions and discussions. Post-doctoral, PhD and young researchers are most welcome. Most talks and discussions are video recorded and made freely available at the workshop pages.
