Request A Slices Account¶
You can request an account on the Slices Portal located at https://portal.slices-sc.eu
Sign Up to request a new account.
If you are an academic researcher or student, you can use your institution’s account to login and create a Slices account. If you are an industrial researcher - or when your institution doesn’t participate in EduGAIN - you can create a local account by filling in the form.
After accepting the Terms and Conditions, you will be asked to either Join or Start a new experiment.
The authority has the concept of Projects which bundle multiple experimenters. In a Project, the PIs (Principal Investigators) can approve new experimenters for that project, without Slices administrators needing to approve this.
Here we will start with creating a new project by clicking
Start New Project. If you have been invited to a Project,
Join Existing Project (or you might have received a specific URL).
If you created a local account, you will need to verify your email address by clicking on the link provided in the email before the sign up process continues.
The next step is that a Slices administrator or project administrator approves your request. This is manual work, so it might take some time. You will receive an email when that is done. After that, you can login on the authority portal and continue with Your First Experiment.
