Welcome! The time period for student applications is from March 12 to
March 27 . In the meantime, it is a good idea to get familiar with
the project. An important part will be the Open Geospatial Consortium
(OGC) standards, in particular (for this project):
* OGC Catalog Services 3.0 - General model
* OGC® Catalogue Services 3.0 Specification - HTTP Protocol Binding
Those specifications can be freely downloaded from the OGC web site .
The wikipedia article  is also convenient for a short introduction.
As a next step, you can try to run Hao's prototype.
