Update on the 2D-DIC Challenge: Results and Conclusions
The 2D-DIC Challenge is organized by an international committee working to understand the accuracy of digital image correlation (DIC) through standardized image sets. The DIC Challenge is run under the auspices of the Society for Experimental Mechanics (SEM) and the International DIC Society (iDICs). The 2D-Challenge incorporates 19 image sets that can be used in evaluating 2D-DIC algorithms. The full results of the study and description of the image sets may be found in Reu et al. (Exp Mech, 2017). A new round of the 2D Challenge is being launched at SEM 2018 and will seek to probe the concept of spatial resolution.

I would like to thank the DIC Challenge board for their help in completing this work, as well as the DIC Challenge participants. Without broad collaboration, making progress on these important DIC measurement problems would be difficult or impossible.
