Dear Moritz,

Thank you for the reply. Yes, I agree that I should focus on one subject and get start preparing the proposal based on it. After a quick research for both subjects. I would like to choose pursuing my latter idea about spatio-temporal image fusion algorithm. For one thing, It is my novel algorithm and I have the confidence and motivation to make it available for using. For another, I code in python more skillful than in C/C++ language. I will contact Luca Delucchi for the possibility of developing that project. 
Thank you again for guiding me earlier. Any more advice would be greatly appreciated. 

Best regards,
Bo Yang

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,
