The HPI Future SOC Lab offers researchers free of charge access to a powerful infrastructure to conduct their research activities.

Over 190 research projects were supported by our lab since it was launched together with EMC, Fujitsu, HP, and SAP in 2010.

Topics of interest for the HPI Future SOC Lab include but are not limited to:

  • Service-oriented computing (SOC) and efficient management of concurrency and memory,
  • Cloud Computing for engineering and hosting distributed applications,
  • New applications exploring new ways of data processing, such as in-memory technology,
  • Multicore architectures / GPU,
  • Hybrid Computing,
  • On-demand delivery models for business applications.

Researchers can apply to gain access to this infrastructure by submitting project proposals. Project proposals are reviewed and approved by a Steering Committee which is led by the head of HPI, Prof. Dr. Christoph Meinel, and which comprises representatives from HPI and the industrial partners, EMC, Fujitsu, HP, and SAP.

All proposals must be submitted by October 15, 2014.

The Steering Committee decisions will be announced as part of the Future SOC Lab Day on October 29, 2014.

Projects are approved for the length of one FSOC Lab period, which starts October 29 and is approximately six months long. Proposals for follow-up projects can be submitted in subsequent call for projects, with the next one being published in spring 2015.

Your project proposals should be short and concise. Please use this template for your submissions.

Please do not hesitate to get back to us in case of questions or comments.
