Invited by Associate Professor of Medical Education Informatics Panagiotis Bamidis, Kyriaki Kalimeri, Computational Social Science Researcher at ISI Foundation (Turin, Italy) & ISI Global Science Foundation (New York City, USA) visited our laboratory on September 28, 2018. Mrs Kalimeri gave a lecture on "Multimodal classification of stressful environments in visually impaired mobility using EEG and peripheral biosignals", during her visit. Also, in the same framework, Mrs Kalimeri toured the research facilities at the AUTH Medical Physics Lab, she was hosted at the e-home of the Thessaloniki Active and Healthy Ageing Living Lab (ThessAHALL) and had the opportunity to meet and discuss with most of the researchers of our team.

The leaders of Lab’s research groups presented to Mrs Kalimeri their work and researchers made short presentations of the projects which are in progress in the current period, exchanging views with their special guest on future partnerships and possible mutual transfer of know-how in their fields of interest.

Prof. Bamidis and all the research staff members of our Laboratory express their warmest acknowledgments to Ms Kalimeri for her visit to our premises, her interesting presentation and the opportunity to spend a very fruitful day with her, wishing to visit our Lab soon again.
