Participating in GSoC

I have been studying the blender code for the last one year. though I am still struck here and there. I want to participate in Gsoc for this year. any guidance you’d like to provide. the gsoc particpants. pls help? how to get started with blender gsoc.

I may be wrong (probably am) but I believe you have to come up with a proposal for what you will do, then the foundation decided if it is a good idea or not. You can probably find some information at
