Gitanjali, although GSOC is not an option for this year (the GSOC
accepted proposals will be announced by Google this coming Monday), we
are always looking for contributors.

Josh Pelkey is presently maintaining the native ns-3 TCP code, so I
suggest to contact him if you are interested in TCP; there are also a
few projects that have been proposed for GSOC in the TCP space. If you
want to contribute to improve ns-3 in general, I might suggest to review
the open bugs and try to work on one that interests you. If you want to
add support for your specific research interests, I would suggest that
you try to run a research-related simulation, and then figure out what
things are missing in ns-3 that support your future work.
