[Orekit Developers] SOCIS 2012

Hi all,

As some of you may already know, ESA organizes a Summer Of Code In Space (SOCIS). The web site for the event is here: <http://sophia.estec.esa.int/socis2012/>.

Last year, Orekit was selected as one of the open-source projects to mentor a student. Our student did a great job and developed an Android application based on Orekit. This application is available in the Orekit forge. The binary package is here: <https://www.orekit.org/forge/projects/socis-2011/files>, and the source code is here: <https://www.orekit.org/forge/projects/socis-2011/repository>.

This year, we also proposed several subjects for SOCIS. The subjects alreay submitted are on the wiki: <https://www.orekit.org/forge/projects/orekit/wiki/SOCIS>.

If someone is interested in proposing additional subjects and mentoring a student, please tell us so. Please note that if you want to propose a subject, you should also take care of the mentoring for the student. This is not a huge task and mainly involves providing help for getting started with Orekit, answering questions by mail, monitoring progress and providing a short final evaluation of the student to ESA. Students work from their home and ESA take care of funding the student work, so mentors only need to provide some time.
