road map

The kinSoftChallenge was launched early March 2019 at the BPS Meeting in Baltimore!

  • Train your software tool as much as you like:

We provide test datasets incl. ground truth model for three different complexity levels.

  • The challenge Round 1 started on July 1st, 2019:

We published challenge datasets for three different complexity levels without ground truth model.

You have had five months time to infer your most accurate kinetic rate model including uncertainties.

  • Submit your results of Round 1 by November 30, 2019 (extended) - at the latest:

Results can be submitted here. They should include:

    • the rate model, i.e. number of states, connectivity of states, rate constants
    • the uncertainty associated with each rate constant
    • a procedure description that ensures reproducibility incl. all required parameters

Waiting has an end in December 2019 (extended) when all ground truth models will be published.

  • The challenge Round 2 with experimental data started on December 15th, 2019:

We published experimental challenge datasets kindly provided by the Schlierf Lab.

Submit your results for Round 2 by February 29, 2020 using the submission form.

  • Pre-defined rating criteria:
    • You have full transparency: we will rate all results according to these criteria.
  • Publication of results:
    • We will report the outcome of the comparison to all participants first.
    • We will assemble a paper draft. With your consent, we will send it to a high-ranked & peer-reviewed scientific journal.
