Call for participation in Scientific Challenge – ICBHI 2017

Dear Researcher,

We kindly invite you to participate in the Scientific Challenge launched within the IFMBE International Conference on Biomedical and Health Informatics (ICBHI2017).

This Scientific Challenge aims to encourage the development of algorithms for respiratory sound analysis, that will recognize whether a respiratory cycle contains crackles, wheezes, or crackles and wheezes, or is normal.

To develop solutions for the challenge, participants have access to a respiratory sound database containing various events(e.g., noise, cough, wheezes, crackles) collected from healthy subjects and patients with different respiratory disorders. Clinical experts have annotated these events.

We encourage you to register and submit your solution to the challenge website,as well as to submit a paper related to your solution.
