General Information

The SSI projects are a new element introduced in 2013, designed to engage students and postdocs on topics related to the theme of an SSI. Participants will be grouped into teams. The teams will work during the Institute and give a report during the project concluding the presentation session on August 20. For larger projects with many interested participants and potential different directions of investigations, forming separate teams could be considered. SLAC Today report on SSI-2013 mini-projects can be a useful reference on how the process worked.

Please signup (coming soon) to the projects using Google Doc forms by selecting two choices. Some of the projects may not have enough signups to reach critical mass for a team and in which case we can regroup based on your second choices for the eventual teams. Please check the Column "Final assignment" in the Google Doc to be sure the project assignment for you is correct. In case not, please E-mail us to fix it. 

Each team should nominate at least one representative with Indico ID to allow the team to upload slides and  E-mail us presenter's CERN Indico ID (if already exist), before 3pm Wednesday Aug/19. In case noone on the team has an Indcio ID, check the speaker's info page for how the Indico upload works and how to request a lightweight CERN ID online first. For the Thursday project presentation session, each team has a total of 20min including ~6min for questions so that presentations should be no more than ~14min. Given the rapid exchange needed for the session, presentations should be uploaded to Indico by 1:45pm on Thursday Aug/20 and we will use the Auditorium console computer for display whenever possible although special displays really needs your own laptop will be considered.
