About grant

PRELUDIUM is a programme offered by National Science Center.

PRELUDIUM is a funding opportunity intended for pre-doctoral researchers about to embark on their scientific career.

The Principal Investigator must be an individual who is beginning his/her career in research and does not have a doctoral degree. Apart from the supervisor, the team members must not hold a habilitation degree or the title of professor. The number of team members must not exceed 3 persons.

Project description

The objective of the project is to research and later prepare methods for computer-aided diagnostics of digital dermoscopic images. Developed system is to process digital images acquired from various photo/video dermatoscopes or SIAscope type devices, and calculate a set of features that can describe skin lesions. Gathered feature set should improve the diagnostic process of malignant lesions, and allow further research on lesion development.

Project leader: Leszek Nowak

Co-synthesis of Embedded Systems

Co-synthesis of Embedded Systems is a project that focuses on using evolutionary methods for building embeded systems.

Melanoma Computer-aided Diagnostics

Melanoma Computer-aided Diagnostics is a research focused on defining description taxonomy of melanocytic skin lesions to improve early detection of malignant melanoma

Monte Carlo Simulations for CTA

Monte Carlo simulations for CTA is a research carried out during the preparatory phase of the Cherenkov Telescope Array project. The aim of the project is to build the next generation observatory of very high energy gamma rays.
