A workshop on BOINC and volunteer computing will be held 29 Sept – 2 Oct 2014 at the SZTAKI Institute in Budapest, Hungary.
Our colleague Francisco Sanz will be there representing Ibercivis Foundation
The objective of this workshop is to share information about BOINC and projects using it, through presentations and informal discussions, in an open and friendly atmosphere. The workshop aims to stimulate new developments and activities related to volunteer computing, and to guide the future development of BOINC.
The workshop is for researchers, scientists and developers with significant experience or interest in BOINC. Areas of interest include:
All participants will have the opportunity to present and discuss their work. Slides will be published on the web, but there will be no papers or proceedings.
The workshop is free but attendance is limited. If you are interested in attending, or have any questions, please contact David Anderson, indicating your areas of interest.
The workshop will be held at
18-22 Victor Hugo St.

The workshop will consist of two activities:
–Talks: All participants are encouraged to give a short (20-30 min) talk describing their activities and plans related to volunteer computing. These talks do not have to be polished, or present results. Please send your talk title to David Anderson.
–Hackfest: On the 2nd and 3rd days of the workshop we’ll divide into groups, to hack, document, discuss or learn some aspect of BOINC. Please come with ideas.
To allow more time for hackfest projects, we’re extending the workshop to 4 days. However, you’re welcome to attend only the first 2 or 3 days.
