ISBI-2018: Diabetic Retinopathy: Segmentation and Grading Challenge Workshop
The challenge was organised in two phases: In the first phase, training data (images+groundtruths) was made available to the participants of the challenge and then top performing teams from the first phase were called for participation in the second phase of an on-site challenge to test their models at ISBI-2018.

It was highly successful event which received 148 submisions from 37 teams in the first phase, out of which 16 teams were shortlisted for participation in the on-site challenge. From the shortlisted teams 13 teams participated in the challenge and top 3 teams per sub-challenge delivered presentation in the on-site challenge. The on-site challenge was held during the challenge workshop at IEEE International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging (ISBI-2018), Omini Shoreham Hotel, Washington (D.C.) on April 4, 2018. The schedule of workshop was as given below:
