The MAVEBA Workshop proceedings, held on a biannual basis, collect the scientific papers presented both as oral and poster contributions, during the conference. The main subjects are: development of theoretical and mechanical models as an aid to the study of main phonatory dysfunctions, as well as the biomedical engineering methods for the analysis of voice signals and images, as a support to clinical diagnosis and classification of vocal pathologies.
Claudia Manfredi works on signals and images analysis in the biomedical field, with about 100 published papers. She is in the Editorial Board of the journal «Biomedical Signal Processing and Control» (Elsevier Eds.), acts as Italian delegate in the Management Committee of COST action 2103 «Advances Voice Function Assessment», and is member of IEEE, ISCA, and GNB.
