Google Summer of Code 2016 with Biomedical Informatics, Emory University

Biomedical Informatics, Emory University (Emory BMI) is once more in Google Summer of Code! Please find the project ideas from Emory University, here. We are using a Slack team ( for communications among students and mentors.

My journey with GSoC since 2009 has been pretty interesting, from student to mentor to student to mentor. 2009 (Student/AbiWord) -> 2010 (Student/OMII-UK) -> 2011 (Mentor/AbiWord) -> 2012 (Mentor/AbiWord) -> 2013 (Mentor/AbiWord) -> 2014 (Student/EmoryBMI) -> 2015 (Student/EmoryBMI) -> 2016 (Mentor/EmoryBMI).

I have always enjoyed being a student as well as a mentor. However, I may not be able to become a student once more in the future, due to the new eligibility requirement introduced in the GSoC this year: veterans who have participated in more than twice cannot reapply as a student.

What are the eligibility requirements for participation?

  • You must be at least 18 years of age
  • You must be a full or part-time student at an accredited university (or have been accepted as of April 22, 2016)
  • You must be eligible to work in the country you will reside in during the program
  • You have not already participated as a Student in GSoC more than twice
  • You must reside in a country that is not currently embargoed by the United States. See Program Rules for more information.
