U.S. Department of Energy Graphic: SSI 2017
SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory


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 the final Thursday. 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. Further examples of how the projects proceeded, you can check the past SSI page for more recent years. The final project presentations (see Indico time table) are always on the last Thursday afternoon and announcement of the prize winner for best project presentation in the final Friday session.  

Signup links to the projects using Google Doc forms with two choices will be announced together with the projects shortly before the SSI starts. 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 at the project kick-off.

Each team will 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). 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 Aug/24 project presentation session, each team has a total of 25min including ~5min for questions so that presentations should be no more than 20min.
