DefiningCitation  +
Definition A software development competition, the DI A software development competition, the DIADEM Challenge,to benefit the scientific community by encouraging the development of better software for automating three-dimensional reconstructions of neuronal arbors. The intent of the Sponsors is to ensure that the best software submitted for the competition is made available to the scientific community within a reasonable time and on reasonable terms. No purchase is necessary to enter or win.<br /> The competition will have two rounds. As of April 10, 2009, individuals and teams may register to participate in the competition and may download sets of image stacks (Data Sets) of non-human animal brains along with three-dimensional reconstructions for some of these Data Sets for training purposes. Submissions of software, including executable programs, supporting documentation, and reconstruction files for the Data Sets, must be uploaded to the competition website no later than April 9, 2010.<br /> In order to be eligible to win the competition, the individuals and at least one member of any teams whose submissions are selected for the Final Round (Finalists) must participate in the Final Round and scientific conference. Personal participation in the Final Round and scientific conference is important for two main reasons: first, because the Finalists software will be tested at the Final Round against additional Data Sets so that the judges can select a winner or winners, and second, because the larger scientific conference, of which the Final Round will be a part, is intended to foster extensive scientific interaction among neuroscientists and computational scientists, including plenary and poster sessions to discuss challenges, solutions, and future directions.<br /> There are 5 datasets, all of which have to be reconstructed for the qualifier phase. Once you have registered your group, dataset download information will be sent to you via E-mail. The 5 datasets are:<br /> - Cerebellar Climbing Fibers<br /> - Hippocampal CA3 Interneuron<br /> - Neocortical Layer 6 Axons<br /> - Neuromuscular Projection Fibers<br /> - Olfactory Projection Fibers<br /> Sponsors: The sponsors of this competition are: Allen Institute for Brain Science, Seattle, Washington; Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI), Chevy Chase, Maryland; and Krasnow Institute for Advanced Study, George Mason University, Fairfax, Virginia.<br /> University, Fairfax, Virginia.<br />
