In our previous exchange via private mail, I already sent you the 
necessary pointers for this subject. Markus Metz and I are willing to 
mentor a student on this. I think it would be a marvelous addition to 
GRASS' image treatment toolbox.

Don't hesitate to post on this list if you have any other questions 
concerning this subject.

I think you will have to chose quite quickly which one of your two 
subjects you wish to pursue, as the deadline for applications will 
arrive fast, and it is probably better to concentrate on one subject and 
do that well. There have been cases, however, of students proposing more 
than one subject.

Best wishes,
