                     Mission of the ISC
       ISC provides open-science environments and
         data for developers and users involved in
         medical image analysis research

Users’ and Developers’ Point of View                        ISC Provides
    Does the software work?                                         Dashboards
    Time and interaction to download and install?                   Packaging
    Documentation online and available for download?                Documentation Standard
    Consistent code quality?                                        Coding Standard
    Active support for individual packages, e.g., email lists?      Support Standard
    How can I learn more about the software?                        ISC hosts tutorials: SPIE…
    How can I contribute my research and data                       The Insight Journal
    Open-source changes too quickly!                                Backward compatible policy
