The project coordinates a few summer coding programs in which student developers are paired with mentors to produce code over the summer.

Google Summer of Code 2022

The organizational admins are Tommaso Pecorella, Mohit Tahiliani, and Tom Henderson.

Two contributors are participating with ns-3 in the 2022 Google Summer of Code.

One additional project was started but did not progress past the midterm evaluation:

We received seven proposals, which were evaluated by a committee that includes most of the mentors listed on the Project Ideas page. For future reference, below is our ideas page and contributor's guide.

ns-3 Summer of Code 2022

ns-3 Summer of Code (NSoC) is a program that runs in parallel to Google Summer of Code. Unlike GSoC, it is not funded, but we aim to operate it similarly to GSoC.

Google Summer of Code 2021

Three students successfully completed projects in Google Summer of Code 2021.

For reference, below were the 2021 project ideas and the 2021 student guide:

ns-3 Summer of Code 2021

ns-3 Summer of Code (NSoC) is a program that runs in parallel to Google Summer of Code. Unlike GSoC, it is not funded, but we aim to operate it similarly to GSoC. The commitments are similar; students and mentors are expected to define and work towards a mergeable project goal by the end of the summer. The program is offered to 'honorable mention' GSoC proposals (i.e., proposals that we would have selected had we received more student slots from Google) and for other reasons such as a contributor's ineligibility for GSoC.

Google Summer of Code 2020

Four students successfully completed Google Summer of Code 2020 projects:

For reference, below were the 2020 project ideas and the 2020 student guide:

ns-3 Summer of Code 2020

These projects are unfunded but are mentored in a manner similar to GSoC, at a lesser pace than the 12-week GSoC program.

Google Summer of Code 2019

ns-3 participated in Google Summer of Code 2019 with four student projects:

Below are project ideas and the 2019 student guide:

European Space Agency Summer of Code in Space (SOCIS) 2019

ns-3 ultimately was not selected for funding for SOCIS 2019. Below is an archive of our student guide, for future reference.

Google Summer of Code 2018

ns-3 participated in the 2018 edition of Google Summer of Code, with five students:

European Space Agency Summer of Code in Space (SOCIS) 2017

ns-3 has been accepted to the 2017 ESA Summer of Code in Space, with student Pasquale Imputato (mentored by Tommaso Pecorella). The project successfully completed in October 2017 (details in the below wiki project page).

The original project ideas page is posted below.

Google Summer of Code 2017

ns-3 was fortunate to mentor five outstanding students for the 2017 edition of Google Summer of Code.

Background

Below is some information that was used during the application phase.

European Space Agency Summer of Code in Space (SOCIS) 2016

ns-3 had one student (Michael Di Perna) successfully complete the 2016 ESA Summer of Code in Space.

Mentored summer projects 2016

ns-3 maintainers will mentor additional summer projects (that students will work on using their own sources of funding) on a best-effort basis. Students interested in this option should review the GSoC or SOCIS ideas page, or propose their own.

Google Summer of Code 2016

ns-3 was not selected for the 2016 Google Summer of Code. We mentored two summer projects outside of GSoC. Below were our materials prepared for our GSoC organizational application.

Google Summer of Code 2015

ns-3 was selected to participate in the 2015 Google Summer of Code. More information can be found on our Project Ideas page and our Student Guide.

This year's students were announced on April 27, and all four successfully completed the program:

European Space Agency Summer of Code in Space (SOCIS) 2015

ns-3 has been accepted to the 2015 ESA Summer of Code in Space. The ns-3 project had one student in SOCIS in each of 2013, 2014 and 2015. However, the satellite channel models project for 2015 Satellite channel models did not successfully complete.

Mentored summer projects

ns-3 maintainers will mentor additional summer projects (that students will work on using their own sources of funding) on a best-effort basis. Students interested in this option should review the GSoC or SOCIS ideas page, or propose their own.

We have one such mentored project in 2015:
