Call for Challenges (for all other calls, click button above)
The IEEE International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging 2018 (ISBI 2018) is soliciting proposals for challenges. The goal of a challenge is to accelerate the pace of research on a demanding academic and/or clinical problem. To accomplish this goal, a challenge should provide a structure for the quantitative comparison of competing methods using standardized datasets and evaluation metrics, and should foster collaboration, communication, and understanding. Critical components of a challenge proposal include the organizing team, the challenge schedule, the challenge topic and representative data. Each challenge needs an organizing team responsible for providing training and test data, defining the tasks, specifying the metrics used to measure performance, managing entries, and organizing the on-site workshop presentations.
Challenges will have corresponding half-day workshops during the first day of the conference and a challenge summary session during the technical program of the conference. We encourage on-site evaluations and scientific presentations during these workshops. However, the organization of a challenge and the agenda for each workshop is determined by the challenge organizers.
We encourage new challenge topics as well as topics that were addressed during previous challenges. New challenge topics could introduce new imaging devices, new biomedical applications, or existing applications that would benefit from focused attention from the medical imaging research community. Challenges that address previous challenge topics could feature, for example, repeating a challenge to track how the field has advanced, addressing bottlenecks in existing processing pipelines, processing larger datasets, analyzing specific sub-populations, or exploring the utility of particular technologies such as deep learning. Prospective challenge organizers are encouraged to discuss their plans in an early stage with the challenge co-chairs.
