Challenge Closed. Thank You To Those Who Participated!

Dear participants of the 2018 Atrial Segmentation Challange.

As of now, the challenge has officially closed. We will announce the final winners at the MICCAI workshop 2018 in 2 days time. We have had an overwhelming response from research groups all over the world, and have received excellent results from many groups. We thank you for your support and participation in our challenge and very much enjoyed interacting with the participants throughout the last 5 months or so.

Sincerely

Paper review comments

Dear all participants

For those of you who have submitted a paper to the STACOM conference, you should have received a PDF response in your email containing detailed comments for your paper. Overall, most of the papers presented the introduction and methods excellently, however, for many papers, the results section requires more attention to detail. We hope these comments will improve your final paper submission, which we are definitely very excited to look forward to. For those who did not submit a paper, we still encourage you to submit entries for the challenge, as you will be scored on the same leaderboard. We wish you all the best for the rest of the challenge and thank you again for your support.

Paper Reviews

Dear all participants of the challenge.

We have received a very high number of paper submissions for the challenge, most of which contained outstanding and novel methods of tackling the problem. We are very overwhelmed by the positive response and attention this challenge has received and would like to wish you all the best for the rest of the challenge. We are currently going through the paper submissions and will be aiming to get back to each individual with the reviews of the paper in 3-4 weeks time (end of August). We thank you for your patience. For those who did not submit a paper, no need to worry, you are still welcome to participate in the challenge and will be scored and ranked on the same leaderboard as everyone else.

All the best.

Zhaohan & Jichao
