About The Project

Project Title and Abstract

Come up with your own project idea, or get inspired by one of the ideas we suggest.


Propose a practical break-down of your task into incremental sub-tasks.


Define the deliverables as precisely as possible.

Schedule & Plan

The recommended granularity of the schedule is the weekly basis. The architectural part of the plan for the application should be at a granularity, that allows for good planning of the project, but don't go into too much detail. Indicate also how many hours you will you dedicate to GSOC, per week.

Final Goal & Outcome

The most important goal for the end of the project is that the resulting implementation can be used and potentially continued by any other RIOT developer. The structure and architecture of the implementation has to be clear and well documented. For projects dealing with network protocols and specifications, interoperability are vital.

Other Commitments during the Project

Indicate concurrent activities (e.g. job, course) that you are committed to during the time of GSOC 2015.
