The MICCAI 2019 Program

Hi @neheller,

Can participants use semi-automatic methods?
Of course, we will claim the method is interactive in the manuscript.



Hi @junma,

Manual intervention in the predictions is not allowed.

We recognize that there is tremendous practical value in semi-automatic systems, but this challenge is meant to be an objective comparison of automatic methods. You’re certainly welcome to use the data develop and publish on semi-automatic methods, but they can’t be used for this year’s challenge.



Go it, thanks for your reply.
