Abstract: In this talk, I will present recent work our group has done in knowledge-based planning, including the development of dose prediction and optimization models. I will also discuss the organization and results of the Open Knowledge-Based Planning Challenge (OpenKBP), an AAPM-sponsored international competition to compare dose prediction models on a large open-access dataset of head-and-neck cancer patients. Finally, I will present follow-up work from an international collaboration that extends OpenKBP to include plan optimization.
