The IronTract Challenge has been extended for a second round and is now accepting new participants. The best pre- and post-processing strategies from the highest-scoring teams in Round I will now be provided to all teams. This new challenge focuses on the reproducibility upstream to the reconstruction and tractography methods.

A live webinar was held on Friday, October 9th, 2020 where Anastasia Yendiki and Chiara Maffei from Harvard Medical School gave a brief summary of the previous round and explained how to participate in the second round of the IronTract Challenge. 

Gabriel from École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne, one of the winners of the first round, gave a tutorial on how to submit your code to the QMENTA Inc‘s platform.

And we want to really make this round of the challenge fun and even more competitive so we will be awarding 3 financial prizes for the winners!
