Dear fellow CV and ML enthusiasts and researchers,

Are you interested in seeing you algorithms potentially saving lives under emergency care? Are you eager to explore uncharted territories of using artificial intelligence for virtual surgical assistants?  What about using AI for video understanding in first-person view datasets? Are you curious about multimodal medical image understanding? If so, we invite you to be part of The Trauma THOMPSON Challenge and submit your algorithms to push the boundaries of AI and machine learning in the medical domain.

Full details below:


Call for Participation to The Trauma THOMPSON Challenge at MICCAI 2023, Vancouver, BC

Event: The Trauma THOMPSON Challenge
Location: Co-located with MICCAI 2023 (Satellite Event)
Date: October 12, 2023
TIME: AM Session
Abstract Submission Deadline: September 8th, 2023
Paper Submission Deadline: September 15th, 2023
Challenge Website: https://thompson-challenge.grand-challenge.org<https://thompson-challenge.grand-challenge.org/>

Challenge Overview

The primary goal of The Trauma THOMPSON Challenge is to find the best algorithms for automatic action recognition and prediction using machine learning from first-person view in the medical domain (refer to egocentric datasets of medical procedures). We offer the first egocentric view dataset of life-saving intervention (LSI) procedures with detailed annotations by medical professionals. The envisioned algorithms include action recognition, action anticipation, procedure recognition, and visual question answering (VQA).

The challenge participation details are available on our challenge website<https://thompson-challenge.grand-challenge.org/>.  There will be prizes for the top performers!!!!

Call for Participation and Papers

There will be 2 tracks for this challenge and a total of 4 challenge tasks. All accepted papers will be included in the MICCAI challenge proceedings (Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) volume in the challenges subline). We have a leaderboard for each task and submitting a paper (min 4 pages, max 12 pages, LNCS format) is mandatory for a corresponding submission in any task to be eligible in the official ranking.
 We have prizes for top performing teams in each task and the best paper award. The details are available on our challenge website<https://thompson-challenge.grand-challenge.org/>.
