The proposed challenge seeks to push the limits of deep learning algorithms for 3D cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) reconstruction from low-dose projection data (sinogram). 

Introducing ICASSP 2024 SPGC competition aiming at reconstructing skin spectral reflectance in the visible (VIS) and near-infrared (NIR) spectral range from RGB images captured by everyday cameras, offering a transformative approach for cosmetic and beauty applications. 

The  2nd e-Prevention challenge ( aims to stimulate innovative research on the prediction and identification of mental health relapses via the analysis and processing of the digital phenotype of patients in the psychotic spectrum.

Various neuroimaging techniques can be used to investigate how the brain processes sound. Electroencephalography (EEG) is popular because it is relatively easy to conduct and has a high temporal resolution. Besides fundamental neuroscience research, EEG-based measures of auditory processing in the brain are also helpful in detecting or diagnosing potential hearing loss. 

Various neuroimaging techniques can be used to investigate how the brain processes sound. Electroencephalography (EEG) is popular because it is relatively easy to conduct and has a high temporal resolution. An increasingly popular method in these fields is to relate a person’s electroencephalogram (EEG) to a feature of the natural speech signal they were listening to. This is typically done using linear regression or relatively simple neural networks to predict the EEG signal from the stimulus or to decode the stimulus from the EEG.

Epilepsy is one of the most common neurological disorders, affecting almost 1% of the population worldwide. The categorization of seizures is usually made based on the seizure onset zone (area of the brain where the seizure initiates) the progression of the seizure and the awareness status of the patient that experience the seizure. Focal onset seizures are the most common type of seizures in adults with epilepsy.

The challenge will concern the analysis and processing of long-term continuous recordings of biosignals recorded from wearable sensors embedded in smartwatches, in order to extract high-level representations of the wearer’s activity and behavior for two downstream tasks: 1) Identification of the wearer of the smartwatch, and 2) Detection of relapses in patients in the psychotic spectrum.

Associated SPS Event: IEEE ICIP 2022 Grand Challenge

Intestinal parasitic infections remain among the leading causes of morbidity worldwide, especially in tropical and sub-tropical areas with more temperate climates. According to WHO, approximately 1.5 billion people, or 24% of the world’s population, are infected with soil-transmitted helminth infections (STH), and 836 million children worldwide required preventive chemotherapy for STH in 2020.
