Hi Cem,

I'm sorry for such a reply. What you do is indeed really interesting. I had
a PhD student 3 years ago for a GSOC and the result was outstanding.
I'm really interested in your project.

Do you think you can submit a proposal for this year ?
Proposals are very open and it's not unusual we take a student with
something different that we "officially" proposed. So I'm happy to see
something which would fit your phd work too.
