Project Steps

In the semi-annual Call for Projects (see figure) we invite you to submit proposals for your project ideas. If access to resources is still required for an ongoing project, a new project proposal can be submitted. 

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

Reports and Posters

Submit your reports and posters in PDF format four weeks prior to the announced Steering Committee meeting via Email to futuresoc-lab-info(at)hpi.de.


Running projects are requested to provide a report (3-5 pages) which addresses the following items:

  • Project idea,
  • Used Future SOC Lab resources,
  • Findings,
  • Next steps.

Project reports will be published as HPI Technical Report with an ISBN number. Please use one of the following templates for your submission and make sure to embed all fonts and images within the PDF.
Due to a change in the text layout, that is agreed with the University Press, and to ensure that the reports will be published in future, we would like to ask you not only to send us the PDF file, but also the resources (LaTeX/Word) to adapt them to the new layout.

Format template (based on IEEE Proceedings)

Additionally a poster shall be prepared to present the project idea and (first, preliminary, or final) results. The posters will be exhibited during the HPI Future SOC Lab Day. Please use templates provided by your institution for creating the poster in size DIN A1 and in portrait format.

Reports and posters in PDF format have to be submitted four weeks prior to the announced Steering Committee meeting via Email to futuresoc-lab-info(at)hpi.de
