The session was the opportunity to recall the scope of the challenge, to give the opportunity to some participants to present their method and also to have a global discussion of the results and the challenge itself. The top 3 participants of each of the four categories received a certificate from the IEEE as well as some prices sponsored by Verasonics. 5 teams received a price.
