Responses to question about keeping challenges open

Bearce, Benjamin (NIH/NCI) [C]  - investigate options on how to keep challenges open, add phase or copy challenge, avoid having users add to the previous submissions

SPIE-AAPM-NCI DAIR Digital Breast Tomosynthesis Lesion Detection Challenge (DBTex) - Phase 1 - Bearce, Benjamin (NIH/NCI) [C] verify with submitters that decision of phase 2 applies to phase 1

SPIE-AAPM-NCI-DAIR & SPIE-AAPM-NCI-DAIR Phase 2  - TBD - (Nick Konz, Wed 11/24/2021 11:36 AM) "Maciej and I discussed this and an idea that we’ve been floating is to have some sort of ongoing validation phase, that would allow anyone to get validation results on their model. We would also want to have a periodic, occasional test phase for people to get test results.

BMMR2 - close on as previously planned. (David Newitt, Thu 10/28/2021 7:10 PM) - link to the challenge data will be de-activated on 12/1/2021
