Dear colleagues,

We would like to draw your attention to the MICCAI challenge "CREMI:
Circuit Reconstruction from Electron Microscopy Images"
(http://cremi.org/).

As of May 1st, the training phase of the challenge has opened. We
provide three volumes with dense neuron and synapse segmentation, along
with annotations for pre- and post-synaptic partners
(http://cremi.org/data.html).

The goal of this challenge is to evaluate algorithms for automatic
reconstruction of neurons and neuronal connectivity from serial section
electron microscopy data. The comparison is performed not only by
evaluating the quality of neuron segmentations, but also by assessing
the accuracy of detecting synapses and identifying synaptic partners.
The challenge is carried out on three large and diverse datasets from
adult Drosophila melanogaster brain tissue, comprising neuron
segmentation ground truth and annotations for synaptic connections. A
successful solution would demonstrate its efficiency and
generalizability, and carry great potential to reduce the time spent on
manual reconstruction of neural circuits in electron microscopy volumes.

and feel free to contact us at challenge at cremi.org.

Regards,
The CREMI organizers (Jan Funke, Stephan Saalfeld, Davi Bock, Srini
Turaga, and Eric Perlman)
