ELMI was created in 2001 to establish a unique communication network between European scientists working in the field of light microscopy and the manufacturers of their equipment.
Image registration/alignment is a key requirement for correlative analysis. Today this is often performed using ad-hoc solutions, with a lot of manual effort and poor reproducibility. Aiming to reach more efficient and standardized approaches, including objective evaluation, COMULIS has initiated work towards a COMULIS Multimodal Image Registration Challenge, to identify the best available techniques to address this task.
To organize such a challenge, we need suitable Multimodal Datasets for methods’ evaluation, and we are therefore asking for your support to help us collect such data. We observe the following requirements on the data:
In organizing a Challenge that utilizes your dataset, we envision world-wide attention to your data (leading to citations), a publication in a high-ranked journal about the challenge & results with you, and in particular, focused effort on finding, refining and developing methods for solving the image registration problems which you and your colleagues may be struggling with.
In case you have a dataset that fits the above three requirement, and would like to support the community (and receive fame, publications and citations) please write a short email to Joakim Lindblad (with firstname.lastname@example.org in Cc) and we can discuss how to best proceed.
