I think David Bellot really wants a Solver for uBLAS. But do approach
him, I'm not an expert in that field.

I certainly know Karsten would like Implicit Routines. Again, very
much not my specialisation.

I think you meant 2013? Paul Kirth was the student that year, and the
library successfully entered the peer review queue after GSoC.

The same library appeared as AFIO in 2014, and also as Asynchronous
file i/o backend for Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OS X or WinRT in 2015.

We'll know from the programming competency test and your written
application. As a general start, fork the relevant parts of Boost
you'll be modified onto github and follow the instructions for
getting unit tests compiling and executing. Start your modifications
from there.

Note that we have not even applied to Google to enter GSoC yet as the
opening date isn't for another week. It is possible we are not
approved by Google as an organisation for 2015.
