Please also carefully remember the Rules of the Contest:
- Data can be requested by registering for the Contest. Participants must read and accept the Contest Terms and Conditions.
- Participants of the contest are intended to submit:
These results will be submitted to the Codalab competition websites for evaluation:
- 2D semantic maps and nDSM/disparity/DSM maps in raster format (similar to the tif file of the training set) for Tracks 1, 2, and 3
- 3D semantic predictions in ASCII text files (similar to the text file of the training set) for Track 4
Track 1: https://competitions.codalab.org/competitions/21120
Track 2: https://competitions.codalab.org/competitions/21121
Track 3: https://competitions.codalab.org/competitions/21131
Track 4: https://competitions.codalab.org/competitions/21132
- Ranking among the participants will be based on:
- mIoU-3 for Tracks 1, 2, and 3
- mIoU for Track 4
- Institutional or business E-mail accounts should be used for registration.
- One E-mail account is allowed for one team.
- The maximum number of trials of one team for each classification challenge is ten in the test phase.
- Deadline for classification result submission is March 22, 2019, 23:59 UTC – 12 hours (e.g., March 22, 2019, 7:59 in New York City, 13:59 in Paris, or 19:59 in Beijing). Submission server will be opened from March 7, 2019.
- Each team needs to submit a short paper of 2 pages describing the used approach by March 26, 2019. Please send a paper to firstname.lastname@example.org using the IGARSS paper template. One and only one submission originating from each team will be allowed to the Contest. Should multiple entries from the same team be received, then exclusively the best submission will be considered.
- For the eight winners, internal deadline for full paper submission is April 26, 2019, 23:59 UTC – 12 hours (e.g., April 26, 2019, 7:59 in New York City, 13:59 in Paris, or 19:59 in Beijing). IGARSS Full paper submission is May 27, 2019.
Failure to follow any of these rules will automatically make the submission invalid, resulting in the manuscript not being evaluated and disqualification from prize award.
Participants to the Contest are requested not to submit an extended abstract to IGARSS 2019 by the corresponding conference deadline in January 2019. Only contest winners (participants corresponding to the eight best-ranking submissions) will submit a 4-page paper describing their approach to the Contest by April 26, 2019. The received manuscripts will be reviewed by the Award Committee of the Contest, and reviews sent to the winners. Then winners will submit the final version of the 4 full-paper to IGARSS Data Fusion Contest Invited Session by May 27, 2019, for inclusion in the IGARSS Technical Program and Proceedings.
