I haven't heard any discussions yet, and the organization applications 
don't even open for another 5 weeks, but we've participated for the past 
7 years, so there's a good chance that we will again this year.

You should watch https://make.wordpress.org/core for an announcement, 
but it probably won't be for another month or two.

Student applications don't open until March 16th, so you've got plenty 
of time to prepare. The next few months are a good time to get involved 
with the community and familiar with the codebases by making 
contributions. We usually receive a couple hundred applications, but 
only accept a handful. The vast majority of applications are from 
students with no history of contributing, so you'll have a better chance 
if you've proven yourself to be a solid contributor.

Check out the following sites for more information:

* http://codex.wordpress.org/GSoC2014 - the 2015 guidelines, processes 
and projects will probably be similar 2014
* https://make.wordpress.org/core/handbook/ - basic information on 
contributing to Core (most of which also applies to the Meta team)
* https://core.trac.wordpress.org/tickets/good-first-bugs - Core tickets 
for new contributors
* https://meta.trac.wordpress.org/report/10 - Meta tickets for new
