Google Summer of Code 2018 Mentor Summit

Each year Google hosts the "Mentor Summit" event at their headquarters, where upto 2 OSGeo delegates can attend. The date for this year's summit is: 12-14 October 2018. More info may be on the official summit website.

Selection Process

GSoC bof meeting at FOSS4G Europe, July 2017 in Paris

During FOSS4G-Europe 2017 in Paris we had a BoF [1], during which we talked about the mentor summit. This is a wiki page about the discussion on who should be OSGeo delegates to participate in the 2018 summit. For 2018 we'll use the same rules as decided last year:

  • Of the 2 OSGeo delegates, one should be an admin, the other a mentor, unless no admins or no mentors apply to go, in which case, it'll be 2 admins or 2 mentors
  • Eligibility:
    • must comply with Google requirements (must be 2018 Mentors with assigned student projects or a 2018 Organization Administrator);
    • for mentors : must be mentor of an OSGeo project (at least as an OSGeo community project or as a project entered into OSGeo incubation, if not an official OSGeo project), as you would be a delegate of the OSGeo foundation.
  • The call is open to hear who is interested to go. Whoever responds must COMMIT to go, otherwise you will take away the opportunity from someone else. Deadline for expression of interest is 8th August. Please enter your names in this page.
  • Selection: we agreed that we must make a (fully transparent, open) lottery. We will use a randomizer tool (below) to decide if need be. Time is short and people need to make paperwork for VISA. Please sign your name below if you are interested to attend.
  • Other requirements: the selected delegates are requested to make a report after returning home from the summit.


Signing below, you commit to go to the summit in the event of a positive outcome in the lottery
