Call for Participation: RETOUCH - Retinal OCT Fluid Challenge

--------------------------------------------------

--------------------------------------------------

The goal of the RETOUCH is to compare automated algorithms that are able 
to detect and segment various types of retinal fluid lesions on a common 
dataset of optical coherence tomography (OCT) volumes representing 
different retinal diseases, acquired with devices from different 
manufacturers.

We made available a large dataset of OCT volumes containing a wide 
variety of retinal fluid lesions with accompanying reference 
annotations. We invite the medical imaging community to participate by 
developing and testing existing and novel automated retinal OCT 
segmentation methods.

The challenge participating teams will be invited to contribute to a 
joint journal paper describing the challenge and summarizing its 
outcome, which will be submitted to a high-impact journal.
RETOUCH will be held on Sep 14th, 2017, during MICCAI conference in 
Quebec City, Canada. RETOUCH is coordinated with the OMIA workshop 
(https://sites.google.com/site/mwomia4/) to offer a more complete 
coverage of ophthalmic image analysis algorithms and software.
