Welcome to the NEATBrainS15 website. Many researchers are working on either adult or neonatal brain segmentation. In this challenge workshop we exploited two challenges that were previously organized in neonatal (NeoBrainS12) and adult (MRBrainS13) MR brain segmentation. The main objective was to get an insight into the main differences and similarities between these two segmentation tasks. We challenged researchers to evaluate their automatic algorithms to segment gray matter, white matter and cerebrospinal fluid on both the NeoBrainS12 and MRBrainS13 data, and submit a workshop paper discussing the major issues encountered when applying their method to both types of data. In addition, we invited researchers to submit a workshop paper describing a novel algorithm in either one or both of these fields, to get an overview of the state of the art methods in both areas. During the workshop, we organized a panel discussion with experts in the field to discuss this topic, as well as the option of setting up a larger repository of data (and annotations) that can be used by researchers in the field.
