    Hi, I am done with the test task given by my mentors and I have mailed them. I am in proposal stage. So, now with less than 2 days left, do I directly submit the proposal, skipping share a draft option, or give it for share a draft once I am done with my proposal?

    @fenilmparmar_twitter you have to submit the proposal through GSOC portal. It is given in their website otherwise your proposal will not be counted.
    @fenilmparmar_twitter As far as I know there is no specific template given by CERN but you can search online for previous accepted proposals. They will give you a good idea for making a strong proposal.

    @pranavmicro7
    @arghyadeep99 You can mail your draft to the mentors but it will take time for your draft to get reviewed. So better to not take the risk for the end moment, review your proposal 2-3 times and send it previously accepted student for review.

    @pranavmicro7
    @fenilmparmar_twitter you have to mail the mentors and then they will send you the evaluation task, but I think the mentors will be already busy with the proposals of other students and may not reply to your mail. You can ask the mentors if they will accept the test after 2-3 days of deadline.

    Can anyone please tell me where to send my proposal? I have it drafted and got response from the mentor but I don't know where to submit it. Participating organizations are: Monash University(https://www.monash.edu/) and Imperial College London(https://www.imperial.ac.uk/). Please help.

    Hi @stlukyanenko! Which TMVA project are you working on? Even I submitted my proposal a few days ago. Did you get any replies from the mentors regarding the proposal, like comments etc. ?
    @shashi278 you need to submit the proposal on the GSoC website.

    @pranavmicro7 thanks a lot. Do you happen to be a past GSoCer by any chance?

    Hey guys, did anyone receive a review of their draft proposal from 'e2e deep learning project' mentors?
    Andrei Gheata
    @agheata
    For those filling draft/final proposals for HSF projects and not finding the "Proposal tag" corresponding to their preffered project, this field should be left empty. Don't forget to notify the mentors that you have submitted a proposal. For drafts, note that that some projects have several proposals to evaluate, so expect some delays, specially if you were not explicitly encouraged to submit a proposal (i.e not being evaluated or did not pass the test). Even in case the mentors do not give you feedback on your draft, make sure that you submit the final proposal by the deadline, in order to be considered.

    i am very angry at mentors response. They have been very passive throughout. I had mailed them several times regarding discussion of ideas which weren't responded back. I understand it is a difficult time but if you have taken responsibility at least be open and transparent about the status. Hopefully things change next time onwards
    Anirudh
    @AnirudhDagar
    @darthgera123 Even I am waiting for the review and feedback on my proposal, but there is no need to be angry. Try to understand the fact that there are numerous students, each with lot of queries that a mentor has to respond. If you don’t get a reply, I’d suggest mailing the other mentor and waiting.
    N!no

    Agree.

    Bottom line is it okay to submit a proposal w/o having completed the tasks and continue to wait for them post the proposal submission deadline?
    Arghyadeep Das
    @arghyadeep99
    Tasks are basically a way to evaluate if you are fit for the project. It is always advised to get the tasks done. However, you can still technically support a proposal. Need to be very good enough to be accepted w/o having done the tasks.

    anyone?

    @BhavyaSheth22
    As @agheata mentioned, even if the tag is not present in the GSoC website, we can submit the proposals after informing our mentors about the same. All the best guys!

    Hey, if anyone wants to exchange and look through each other proposals, I am up for that.

    The proposals are your individual view on how to deal with a given project, your own plan of work and timeline. In few words, it is your own vision of the project, and it's personal, so please keep it to yourselves. Mentors will notice anyway and won't appreciate seeing several copies of the same. You are of course free to exchange structure or content-related questions/answers, but please do not share your drafts...

    And good luck to everyone!
    stlukyanenko
    @stlukyanenko
    Nobody tried to copy anything, more like check out whether the structure is correct or the word order is understandable.

    @aryakarani
    Are we not permitted to communicate with mentors till 4th may? @agheata
    Andrei Gheata
    @agheata
    @aryakarani It is not that communication is forbidden, but students are not supposed to work yet for the project they applied for. Besides, mentors have ranked in general many candidates and they are not supposed to disclose this. Communication with students may give them false hope, so they avoid replying. So it is not quite fair to ask mentors many questions until May 4 when the selected projects will be announced.
    aryakarani
    @aryakarani
    @agheata Oh ok, that sounds fair. Thanks.

    Hello! Did anyone receive the acceptance email yet?
    aditya
    @adityabharadwaj198
    It's supposed to be out by 1800 UTC I think.
    BhavyaSheth22
    @BhavyaSheth22
    The results will be out at 18:00 UTC so we'll receive our emails, acceptance or rejection, only after that.
    Shashi Ranjan
    @shashi278
    I didn't know that, thanks.
    Also, good luck to everyone

    Hi all, at this time you should have all received the mail from GSoC about being accepted or not. On behalf to he HSF mentors and administrators, congratulations to those who were selected and we wish you success, but most of all we want to congratulate all of you who put up a great amount of work to understand our projects and write excellent proposals. You were more than 200 doing so and only about 1/6 of you were accepted, even if many more deserved as well... We want to tell you that your work was not for nothing: the experience you gained is very valuable and many past candidates used it to transform into a success the year after. In addition, you got a taste of our high-energy physics field and you are all welcome to contribute if you are interested, by other means than GSoC - our project descriptions are quite verbose and contain many useful links pointing to areas where you can potentially get involved. Wishing you good luck, and stay safe!

    @TheGupta2012
    Hey guys hope you all are doing well. I was just curious about what were the actual tasks given by the mentors after the project announcements and skillsets they were looking for ;like what specifically is required for start contributing to the projects of HSF. Thanks
