Google Summer of Code 2011 - Org Applications Open

06 Mar 2011 David Watson gsoc

Has it really been another year already? Having really enjoyed our experience as a successful mentoring organization in Google Summer of Code 2009 and Google Summer of Code 2010, The Honeynet Project is very pleased to announce that we will once again be applying to be accepted this year as a potential mentoring organization for Google Summer of Code 2011 (note the changed URL for GSoC 2011).

The first GSoC 2011 deadline is Friday March 11th, which is the deadline for interested organizations to submit their org application. Currently we are reviewing our GSoC 2011 project ideas internally and prospective students will soon be able to see our list of proposed project ideas here. If we are accepted this year by Google, as usual all of our GSoC 2011 information will be available at /gsoc on our main public website.

To provide some background, you can find a copy of a recent presentation by our Chief Research Officer David Watson on our achievements during GSoC 2009 and GSoC 2010 here. This hopefully provides a quick introduction to the Honeynet Project and a summary of our collective activities in recent GSoCs.

For more GSoC 2011 information, student enquiries and GSoC mailing list information, see our /gsoc site.

Fingers crossed for lots of interesting student projects and another productive summer…
