Hi Rishabh,

I'm happy to see you're interested. We have plenty of potential projects for ublas and my policy is to let the student choose and provide his/her own ideas.

Please let me know what you're excited with and we can work on a project and submit it.
This year, I believe we will have again many proposals. My forecast is that we could have one slot for ublas if we're lucky. Last year we had 2, which is great but we can't expect to have so many every year.

Usually, I asked newcomers to demonstrate their C++ abilities and especially in manipulating templates which is a pre-requirement for working on ublas. The test is quite simple:
- write a vector library using expression templates and show its performance.
