PASCAL Challenges

PASCAL Challenges

PASCAL encourages its members to create a series of challenges to exploit the competitive nature of many researchers and drive progress forward at a faster pace, The challenges could be could be organised by industrial and academic institutes and would promote the creation of a new generation of more effective methods, demonstrated on real-world problems. The results are published as papers and presented at PASCAL sponsored workshops, in addition to some of the major conferences in the field. A total of 26 challenges were created during the lifetime of PASCAL (the predecessor to PASCAL2).

Below are a list of current and previous PASCAL challenges, with links to their respective websites.
