      Student-organization interaction period 20m

      CERN-HSF has been accepted by Google in the GSoC 2019 program! Most of the project proposals have already been published in the CERN-HSF website and therefore students are starting to contact mentors.

      Thus, we are now in the student-organization interaction period (Feb. 26 – Mar. 25), when mentors are supposed to:

      • Evaluate their students by means of coding exercises. The objective is to verify that the student has the required skills for the proposed work and to find out which student/s are strong candidates for the project. See attachment for an exercise example.

      • Be responsive when students contact them. This is a template that you can use to answer to prospective candidates for your project.

      • Sign up at:
        * The GSoC website (invitations have been sent, please contact us if you have not received it).
        * The CERN-HSF Google group
        Please note that signing up does not guarantee a student!

    • 2:20 PM 2:40 PM
      Further steps 20m

      Discussion about the following phases of GSoC, detailed here. These phases include:

      • Student application period (March 25 - April 9)

      • Community bonding period (May 6 – May 27)

      • Coding period (May 27 – Sep 2)

    • 2:40 PM 3:00 PM
      Open question session 20m

      Time for the mentors to ask any question about GSoC at CERN-HSF.
