 Dr. Bashir Al-Diri joined the Lincoln School of Computer Science at the University of Lincoln in 2009. His main research is concerned with the development of computer vision algorithms to analyse retinal blood vessels for characterization of diabetic retinopathy. Dr. Al-Diri developed a robust fully automated system for retinal vascular segmentation and measurement, which provides a unique combination of good segmentation and superior measurement performance. It is thus uniquely well-suited to act as a base for research into the diagnosis of vascular diseases that cause measurable changes to the geometry of retinal vessels. Dr. Al-Diri research includes computer vision, medical image analysis, automated surveillance, artificial intelligence, speech recognition, language corpus and lexical analysis, and applications of active contour models.
   

Prof. Andrew Hunter
Pro Vice Chancellor
Head of the College of Science
The University of Lincoln
United Kingdom
ahunter@lincoln.ac.uk

 Professor Andrew Hunter received his B.Sc. in Mathematics and Computing in 1985, and his Ph.D. in Computer Science in 1989, both from the University of Bath. He joined the University of Lincoln in 2004, founding the Centre for Vision and Robotics Research, and is currently the Dean of Research. His major research interests are in retinal imaging, including the segmentation of retinal vessels and lesions, in human behavioural analysis (including assistive care and surveillance), and in specialized hardware for vision and other sensor analysis, including FPGA-based neural architectures for segmentation, tracking and scene analysis.

Sunderland Eye Infirmary
United Kingdom
maged.habib@chsft.nhs.uk

 Maged Habib is a consultant Ophthalmologist and Vitreoretinal Surgeon at Sunderland Eye Infirmary in the North East of England. Maged has special interest in medical and surgical retinal diseases, specially the managment of diabetic eye disease and retinal vascular disorders. Maged has been involved with the South of Tyne diabetic retinopathy screening programme for many years and leads the virtual imaging clinic service. He has been involved in many muticenter studies and his main MD research explored the role of retinal vascular geometry analysis in the detection and monitoring of diabetic retinopathy. He has special ongoing research interest in the retinal vascular analysis in various ocular and systemic diseases. Maged is a reviewer for the retinal section of different international journals and has many peer reviewed publications in medical and surgical retinal diseases.
