Future SOC Lab (Service-Oriented Computing)

The HPI Future SOC Lab provides researchers with free of charge access to a powerful IT infrastructure. It aims at enabling and promoting exchange between the research community and industry. We invite researchers from all scientific areas and universities worldwide to use the Lab‘s resources to conduct their research activities.

Call for Projects

Submit a project proposal

We invite you to work on your research questions using the HPI Future SOC Lab's IT infrastructure. Submit a project proposal for the period Fall 2018 and start working in November.

In the semi-annual Call for Projects the submission of project proposals is possible. If access to resources is still required for an ongoing project, a new project proposal can be submitted.
