- as soon as the platform opens (projection early february 2018), participant must create an account. If not done previously on this website, they can access the data and the material of the challenge. They can also start to upload their results.

- an abstract must be submitted using the IEEE IUS abstract submission procedure. A specific category for the challenge will be created. First results must be included using all challenge datasets made available either on this webpage or on the platform. An already published method is worth beeing included in the competition. Acceptance to participate to the challenge will be based on these abstracts. (This rule is less restrictive as initially intended, please contact the organizers if you want to participate even after the 4th of July)

- accepted participants will be able to upload their (hopefully improved) results in the challenge platform until 2 weeks before the conference.  After this date the platform will be closed.

- accepted participants are allowed and encouraged to submit an extended abstract of up to 4 pages following the IEEE proceeding template to appear in the IEEE IUS 2018 proceedings.
