Next years GSoC is still in a very early phase, but lets hope Debian
will participate again ;)
To get an idea about the ideas that might be interesting for Debian as
part of GSoC, you can have a look at the last years projects, they are
listed on https://wiki.debian.org/SummerOfCode2018 and in the GSoC
archive on https://summerofcode.withgoogle.com/archive/
You can also look through the archives of this list, i think there were
already some mails with ideas for next years GSoC.
I can also recomment the recording of the GSoC session of this years

There is also the help page https://www.debian.org/intro/help listing
various resources pointing you to different areas where you can
contribute to Debian.

If you want to do something wit Java, you can have a look at the
Wikipage of the Java packaging team
https://wiki.debian.org/Teams/JavaPackaging. There are also teams for
packaging python-modules and python apps:
https://wiki.debian.org/Teams/PythonModulesTeam and

If you want to help fixing bugs, there is a "newcomer" tag, which lists
bugs that are ideal for new contributors to get involved in Debian:
