Challenges are open science, collaborative competitions for evaluating and comparing computational algorithms or solutions to problems. Synapse can be used to manage these scientific computing challenges.

Any challenges that you are registered for will appear in the challenges tab of your Synapse toolbar.

Synapse enables you to create and manage a challenge, participate in a challenge, and/or submit Synapse files or Docker images for evaluation via evaluation queues.
