Dear Organizer,

Can you please let me know what are the rank requirements of wildcard entries? Do we need to achieve top marks for both murmur and outcome, or just a high mark for murmur is ok? 

Thanks a lot.

Dear Yujia,

We will award two wildcards for the 2022 Challenge: one for each of the two Challenge tasks of murmur detection and clinical outcome identification. A team does not need to score well in both tasks for a wildcard entry.

For each task, the highest-ranking entry as of 31 July 2022 that belongs to a team without an accepted CinC abstract will be invited to submit an abstract for review. If accepted, these teams will be invited to present posters at CinC 2022 and be eligible for official rankings and prizes as long as they satisfy the other conditions of the Challenge.

Please see these links for more details:

Believe it or not, the end of the official phase of the 2022 Challenge is only five weeks away. We strongly encourage all teams that are interested in participating in the Challenge to make their first submissions in the next couple of weeks while there is still time to troubleshoot unexpected issues with their entries. We have had many interesting entries so far and look forward to many more in the coming weeks.

(On behalf of the Challenge team.)
