A project of the SAL research group is involved in the Google Summer of Code for the third time in a row.

The P2PSP, one of the projects included in the High Performance Computing and Algorithm group research lines, is taking part of the GSoC program as a mentor organization. GSoC is an international program in which Google awards stipends of 5400$ to all students who successfully complete a requested free and open-source software coding project during the summer.

In previous years we had students from countries such as Russia, India, Germany or Canada. Thanks to their work, we have achieved several improvements in the protocol, we focus on its massive use with topic like security and efficency.

Most of the P2PSP mentors are mates of the SAL group. This year the list is growing:

Last January, several members of the SAL group participated in the VIII Seminario de Invierno de la red CAPAP-H. One part of the seminar was about sharing knowledge and current work. Our mates Miriam and José Manuel took part on it with two different talks: Optimización de procesos de altas presiones en la industria alimenticia and division regular de símplices para resolución de problemas de Blending. The rest of presentations are available online at http://capap-h.org/

After talks session, we attendanced the course titled "Uso de plataformas ARM en enseñanzas de Informática" taught by Professor Rafael Asenjo y Professor Maria Ángeles González. We spent all Tuesday in the practical session of the course. We learnt a lot of insteresting things about Raspberry Pi and Android with activities with the focus on teaching.

Some days ago we visited Porto, the city that held the 16th International Conference on Intelligent Systems Design and Applications (ISDA). Our mate Cristóbal Medina gave a talk titled "On Pollution Attacks In Fully Connected P2P Networks Using Trusted Peers". In this work he shared our progress in P2P network security topics. Especifically in the detection of pollution attacks using Trusted Peers.

As same as in other meettings, there were several interesting talks from international researchers. However, the conference was not only about security but also about other topics like optimization, neural networks or machine learning. In the social side, we had time to speak and share ideas with the rest of attendees. It was a great experience that should be repeat soon.
