Project Steps

You are invited to hand in your proposals for projects at the Future SOC Lab twice a year, in spring and fall (see figure above), via the Call for Projects. Project proposals can be handed in for new projects as well as for extensions of projects that are currently being worked on at the Future SOC Lab.

The HPI Future SOC Lab’s Steering Committee, which comprises representatives of HPI and the industrial partners, will decide about the approval of project proposals. This will be done during the Future SOC Lab Day.

Please consider the Terms of Use of the Future SOC Lab.

Access to resources

Project proposals are approved for the period of time until the next HPI Future SOC Lab Day (~ 6 months). A project extension beyond this period is not possible. A new project proposal must be submitted if a project shall be continued and is not completed within a FSOC Lab period. There are no commitments beyond the terms of use of the HPI Future SOC Lab regarding the access to the Lab resources or the protection of confidential data stored on the HPI resources.

Please note:
We will delete all project related data and disable access to the lab's resources after the period has ended.

Members of an approved project can request exclusive access to one of the servers. To plan resource utilization, a resource has to be requested via E-Mail at least two weeks before you want to run your experiments.

Report and poster

In accordance to the Terms of Use projects are required to submit a final report and a poster to document their activities. These shall be submitted to Future SOC Lab at least 3 weeks prior to the announced Steering Committee meeting.
