How to Join

You have to use your institutional email address for the registration.
Please note that while you can use non-institutional emails (e.g. Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo, etc.) your request might be refused depending on the license model of the dataset (e.g. non-commercial use), hence, we recommend using an educational or non-profit account.

First time users will have to register, selecting ISLES2018 as research unit in the process. If you already have an account with SMIR, navigate to Group Administration and select "Join another research unit" to join ISLES2018. In both cases, you will have to wait until your registration is confirmed by an administrator

Ongoing benchmark leaderboards

For the ongoing ISLES benchmark, you can find the leaderboards below. They are ordered alphabetically by team name and can be sorted by evaluation measure.

Leaderboard: Testing

Testing results are a summary of single-case evaluations that can be used to benchmark approaches. Per-case results are not available to users as to minimize efforts where methods are fine-tuned to the testing dataset.

The table above takes results into consideration which were evaluated prior to 08.07.2024 00:00:00 UTC. This date changes every week.
