Hi everyone,

just a quick notice concerning GSoC: It has officially begun, and the
students who were accepted have been announced.

A full list can be found here:
http://www.google-melange.com/gsoc/org/google/gsoc...

We had a huge number of proposals this year, and it was quite hard to
pick 5 students. Without going into details, we sorted all proposals by
our own grading system and waited until the number of slots was
announced, then picked the first 5.

There were certainly more than 5 fantastic proposals, and it's a bit sad
that we couldn't take more people. I would like to thank everyone for
applying.

I also want to thank all mentors for volunteering and helping with the
grading and selection of students.
Special thanks goes out to Jens, who volunteered to mentor two students.
This made it possible to simply pick the top 5 students from our list
without having to find a backup mentor or arbitrarily changing our
priority order.

A little stat on the side: An incredibly high percentage of
applications were for the LDPC codes. Why they are so much more
interesting than all the other projects remains a mystery to me, but it
seems we have some code afficionados here. Perhaps some of you are
willing to put in some time to write some other FEC code? We only have 5
GSoC slots, but that doesn't mean you can't contribute :)
Of course, that goes for all students. I do hope you are all genuinely
interested in the GNU Radio project and we will see you around.

So, the summer of code starts now! I certainly hope that we have 5
successful projects this year and 5 more contributors in the future.

Hello Everyone,

I am a graduate student from ECE Paris, France. I have been selected for
GSoC 2013 for the project IEEE 802.11 a/g/n Rx and Wireshark
Connector<http://www.google-melange.com/gsoc/proposal/review....
I am much obliged and thankful to the community for this opportunity and
hope to come up with some good results during this experience.

This project aims to provide a utility for new users of GNU Radio to
access
Wireshark and analyze their algorithms using it. The aim is to develop a
bridge between GNU Radio and Wireshark which would result into analysis
of
packets. I plan to do this using already developed OFDM based IEEE
802.11
a/g/n Receiver, thanks to Univ of Innsbruck people for that. Also
libpcap,
a packet capture library, will be used to develop socket between
GNURadio
and Wireshark. For detailed proposal please visit
here<http://shashankgaur.files.wordpress.com/2013/05/gs...
.

For the development of the project, I am hosting it at Google Project
hosting (here <http://code.google.com/p/radioplus/>). I will be setting
it
up completely in next few hours.

For the moment some starting soft milestones are as following:

*Till this weekend*: Fresh install of gnuradio and ofdm rx(univ of
innsbruck). Revision of basic state of the art and intial setup phase.

*Next week (3rd-9th June)*: Deep study of OFDM code and preparation of
first document on state of the art. Defining initial objective before
real
coding starts. Discussion with mentors and inputs on the initial goals.

I would also start a blog which will sum up the development including
major
milestone screen-shots and videos, whatever may be possible.

At the end, Once again I thank the community for this opportunity and my
gratitude goes to all mentors and volunteers who has been working hard
for
GSoC. I would be much obliged to have guidance and feedback from the
community during this development phase.


Best Regards,
Shashank Gaur

Hello Everyone,

I'm Manu, a graduate student at Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay.
I'm
pursuing masters in Electrical Engineering specializing in Communication
and Signal Processing. My proposal on LDPC codes has been accepted for
GSoC. You can look into the
proposal<http://home.iitb.ac.in/%7Emanu.ts/proposal.pdf>for more
information.

The codes will be hosted in github repo <https://github.com/manuts/ldpc>

Hello GNU Radio Community,

I am Aneela, an MS student at University of Iowa, USA. Though my MS
thesis topic is about Nonlinear Control and Smart power grids;
nevertheless, I enjoy doing coding for GNU Radio in my leisure time.
Recently, my proposal named "Improving GNU Radio Companion (GRC)" has
been accepted into GSoC'13. Therefore, I want to share my writeup with
the community. You can access my proposal using below URL:
http://www.engineering.uiowa.edu/~ayasmeen/proposa...

I am very thankful to GNU Radio developers for their confidence in my
abilities and I will try to put my best efforts in achieving the goals
of this project. It is first time that I am going to work as a developer
rather than an application programmer; therefore, I am quite excited and
I hope I will learn quite a bit from this exercise. Last but not the
least, I will appreciate any valuable feedback from the community
regarding my project.


Aneela

p.s. I haven't started writing the actual code yet, therefore, I will
share the link to my github repository some time later :)

Hello all, one more introduction....

I am also a GSoC participant this summer. I'm a first year aerospace
engineering graduate student at the University of Texas at Arlington. My
area of research is satellite communication links, which is what lead me
to GNU Radio.

Manu and I both wrote proposals for LDPC implementations, but we are
going to coordinate and progress such that we are working independently,
not getting in each other's way, and not implementing duplicate work.

My git repo will be here:
https://github.com/tracierenea/GNU-Radio-GSoC2013

I'll be sending periodic status updates throughout the summer. I am very
grateful for this opportunity and am looking forward to a productive
summer.

Hello all,

This will be an exciting summer for GNU Radio and FPGA development. My
GSoC
project aims to add FPGA acceleration to GNU Radio with Xilinx's Zynq
FPGA.
My git repo (with my proposal) is at:
https://github.com/jpendlum/GnuRadio_Zynq
<https://github.com/jpendlum/GnuRadio_Zynq>  . I will be at GNU Radio
Hackfest all week and hope to get a great start on this project. Soon I
will
have a blog up on GitHub to track my progress.

As for my background, I am a second year PhD student in Computer
Engineering
at Northeastern University studying Cognitive Radio and SDR. One of my
research projects,  CRUSH <http://jpendlum.github.io/crush/>  , is
available
on github. Before my Northeastern studies, I graduated from Purdue
University with a BS in EE and have worked for several defense companies
doing FPGA design for wireless communication systems.

Good luck to all the GSoC students!

Jon

I recommend contacting Mike Kershaw (dragorn of the Kismet project) and
Mike Ryan (known for recent work on Bluetooth Low Energy security) to
coordinate efforts.  They are actively working on a general purpose
interface for delivering real-time data from various software sources to
Wireshark.  Email me if you need their email addresses.
