MM-WHS 2017: Multi-Modality Whole Heart Segmentation
in conjunction with STACOM and MICCAI 2017 (Sep 10 or 14th, 2017, Quebec City, Canada)

Guidelines

How to participate

Read carefully the Terms and Conditions and return the signed Data Use agreement document and send to the organizers. We’ll then get in touch and send you the data link. For the challenge and algorithm evaluation, please submit your segmentation results in nifty (nii.gz) format.

-- Submission for abstract and results: June 19th, 2017
1. On the training data: The participants can use the training data and any cross validation scheme for their manuscript preparation and submission, via workshop submission system.
2. On the testing data: Please email the segmentation results of the test datasets, in nifty format in a zip file, with title MM-WHS Test Result + Fully Name of the corresponding author, to the organizers for evaluation.

-- Submission deadline for paper: June 26th, 2017
1. Please submit via workshop submission system.
2. Please email the segmentation results of the test datasets to the organizers for evaluation if you have not done so.

-- Notification of acceptance: July 24th, 2017
The authors will be notified with the decision of their manuscript and the evaluation results of the testing datasets. We will publish the ranking results of all the submitted algorithms later.

-- Camera ready: July 31st, 2017
In the camera ready copy, we suggest the authors include their evaluation and ranking results of the test data, as well as the results of the training data.

The challenge also accepts single-modality segmentation, single chamber segmentation. For these participants,the evaluation will be given solely on the modality/ chamber.

Review process

For the submitted manuscripts, they will be firstly reviewed by the workshop organizers who will ensure the quality of the paper reached the publication standard. Then each paper will be reviewed by our reviewers. The review procedure will be double-blinded, similar to the MICCAI submissions. Review comments will be sent to the authors for their further consideration of modifications and preparation for the final camera ready copy that will be included in the workshop proceedings.

Paper Format

The format should follow the LNCS style according to the main MICCAI conference guidelines, anonymous and no more than 8 pages.

Supplementary materials such as videos are acceptable and encouraged. If the paper had been submitted to the main MICCAI conference, authors may optionally include the reviews and rebuttal in the supplementary materials.
