Australian Umbrella Org for Open-Source Projects

We are an Australian not-for-profit umbrella organization for open-source projects. We believe the open-source philosophy provides a resource-efficient channel to transfer knowledge and achieve innovation and education.

In 2019, we offer the following projects:

  • Agora: An electronic voting library.
  • Agora-Web: An online portal for democratic elections.
  • Computational Philosophy: Formalization of philosophical theories and arguments towards computer-assisted metaphysics.
  • Carbon Assistant: Provides conversational access to the CarbonFootprint API.
  • CarbonFootprint: A browser extension to track the C02 emissions.
  • CarbonFootprint API: A universal API to find the C02 emissions.
  • CarbonFootprint-Mobile: A cross-platform app to monitor and track their C02 emissions.
  • CrowdAlert: Platform to report and view the incidents around the globe.
  • Mind the Word: A browser extension that helps users to learn new languages.
  • Scavenger: An automated theorem prover for first-order logic.
  • Social Street Smart: An extension that makes the Internet a more productive.
  • Starcross: Starcross Android App brings the facility of Night Sky Gazing.

We have a diverse group of mentors, including GSoC students from previous years who decided to become long-term contributors as well as academics with extensive experience in supervising undergraduate, M.Sc. and Ph.D. students on theses and projects, whose results are often published and presented in the most prestigious conferences of our research fields.

We are looking for excellent students of any level (undergraduate, M.Sc., or Ph.D.), who are interested in becoming long-term collaborators in our projects and in joining the open-source approach to software development. We will evaluate student applications solely on the basis of programming skills, academic merit and the feasibility of the proposals.

If you are a prospective student interested in doing your Google Summer of Code (GSoC) project with us, please follow the instructions on our website.
