Dear PETSc developers,
in order to attract students to PETSc development, I'm thinking about a
PETSc application for Google Summer of Code (GSoC) 2023:
The org application deadline is February 7, i.e. in 4 days. This
application is - roughly speaking - a form with a state of intent and a
justification why the project is a good fit for GSoC. I've done this in
the past (~2010-12) and can do the paperwork again this year.
What is required:
- PETSc developers, who are willing to act as mentors throughout the
- A few good project ideas (e.g. MATDENSE for GPUs) for
contributors/students to work on
It used to be that new organizations will get at most 2 contributor
slots assigned. That's fair, because one must not underestimate the
effort that goes into mentoring.
Thoughts? Shall we apply (yes/no)? If yes, are you willing to be mentor?
The more mentors, the better; it underlines the importance of the
project and indicates that contributors will find a good environment.
Thanks and best regards,
