The NEATBrainS workshop was held on Thursday April 16th in the New York Marriott at Brooklyn Bridge in New York, USA. We are looking back at a great workshop.

It was interesting to see that the two methods submitted by the NEATBrainS participants that were initially developed for neonatal MR brain segmentation, are now the top 2 in the adult MR brain segmentation challenge.

And it was great to listen to the talks by Guido Gerig and Simon Warfield. We also got a lot of positive feedback on the panel discussion. The discussion slides can be downloaded here. A special thanks to the members of the panel for the opportunity to hear their thoughts on these matters.
