Given the positive response to the IUS 2016 challenge on plane wave imaging (PICMUS) [1], we propose to organize a challenge on synthetic aperture (SA) 2-D vector flow imaging (VFI). The challenge consist on estimating blood flow velocities from both simulated and measured ultrasound RF element data sets. The challenge will be deployed using a similar web platform  as the one used for the PICMUS challenge. The results will be presented during the next IEEE International Ultrasonics Symposium 2018 in Kobe (Japan).
