Constantinos S. Pattichis is Professor with the Dep. of Computer Science and Director of the Biomedical Engineering Research Centre at the University of Cyprus and Leader of HealthXR Group - Smart, Ubiquitous, and Participatory Technologies for Healthcare Innovation in the CYENS Centre of Excellence. He was born in Cyprus on Jan 30, 1959, and received his diploma as technician engineer from the Higher Technical Institute in Cyprus in 1979, the BSc in Electrical Engineering from the University of New Brunswick, Canada, in 1983, the MSc in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin, USA, in 1984, the MSc in Neurology from the University of Newcastle Upon Tyne, UK, in 1991, and the PhD in Electronic Engineering from the University of London, UK, in 1992. He has 30 years of experience in eHealth and connected health, medical imaging, biosignal analysis, intelligent systems and explainable AI, and more recently in mHealth interventions based on X Reality applications. He has been involved in numerous projects in these areas funded by EU and other bodies, with a total funding managed in excess of 20 million euros. He is the Technical Leader of the EU project funded under the Emergency Support Instrument Action for Cyprus to implement the EU Digital Covid Certificate Platform for the issuance of the corresponding certificates for vaccination, recovery and laboratory testing (eudcc.gov.cy which has been used by more than 1 million users). He was Co-Principal Investigator of the EU H2020-WIDESPREAD-04-2017-Teaming Phase 1 project “Integrated Precision Medicine Technologies Research Centre of Excellence (IPMT)”. He is also leading the “Deployment of Generic Cross Border eHealth Services in Cyprus”, an EU Innovation and Networks Executive Agency (INEA), Connecting Europe Facility (CEF), funded project where 23-member states participate.  More recently, he was awarded as Co-PI the development and implementation of a highly competitive national integrated project entitled “Integrated National eHealth Ecosystem (eHealth4U)”, that targets to develop the national eHealth infrastructure based on strict adherence to interoperability protocols for the offering of advanced big-data eHealth services. He has published 150 journal publications, 259 conference papers, and 30 chapters in books in these areas (no. of citations more than 12500, h-score 54).  He is Co-Editor of the Handbook of Speckle Filtering and Tracking in Cardiovascular Ultrasound Imaging and Video, published by IET, UK, 2018 and of the edited volumes M-Health: Emerging Mobile Health Systems (considered to be the first published book on mHealth), and Ultrasound and Carotid Bifurcation Atherosclerosis, published in 2006 and 2012 by Springer. He is Guest Co-Editor of the Special Issues of the Frontiers Digital Health on Connected Health and of the IEEE Journal of Biomedical and Health Informatics (J-BHI) on Special Issue on Large Scale Video Analytics for Clinical Decision Support (2023), Integrated Precision Medicine Informatics (2019) and on Computational Solutions to Large-Scale Data Management and Analysis in Translational and Personalized Medicine (2014). He was also Guest Co-Editor of the Special Issues of the IEEE Trans. on Information Technology in Biomedicine on Emerging Technologies in Biomedicine (2009), Computational Intelligence in Medical Systems (2009), Citizen Centered eHealth Systems in a Global Health-care Environment (2011), and Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Health Informatics (2012).  Moreover, he served as Distinguished Lecturer (2013-2014), and currently serves as member of the Technical Committee on Biomedical and Health Informatics of the IEEE EMBS, an Associate Editor and Member of the Steering Committee of the IEEE J-BHI and Specialty Section Editor of Connected Health of Frontiers Digital Health.  He is/was General Co-Chair of IEEE International Conference on Biomedical and Health Informatics BHI2022, BHI2021 and CAIP 2021, Program Co-chair of the IEEE BHI2019 and BHI2018, IEEE Computer-Based Medical Systems (CBMS2017), General Co-chair of the IEEE 4th Middle East Conference on Biomedical Engineering (MECBME 2018), IEEE International Conferences on Information Technology Applications in Biomedicine (ITAB 2009), Bioinformatics and Bioengineering (BIBE 2012), and 13th Medical and Biological Engineering and Computing (Medicon 2016). He is a Fellow of IEEE, IET, International Academy of Medical and Biomedical Engineering (IAMBE) and European Alliance for Medical & Biological Engineering & Science (EAMBES).
