I am a computer science student and I have worked on a project at IUCAA last summer where I tried to estimate the distance to star clusters using automated photometry. My project is on my github account. I researched about a similar project and found out that ASteCA - Automated Stellar Cluster Analysis is working on this. Could such a project be a part of GSOC this year?

I am also interested in the projects mentioned:
  1. Develop sunkit-image 2. Velocities in astropy co-ordinates
Could someone guide me on how to proceed to contribute for the same?

bsipocz AustereCuriosity (Gitter): I'm afraid we can't accommodate personal research projects in GSoC, but if you're interested in any of the projects we are offering, please start with reading our student guide here: http://openastronomy.org/gsoc/student_guidelines.html

Ah. Thanks. I was actually wondering why projects under photutils aren't there in the ideas list this year.
