A SEMINAR ON VOLUNTEER COMPUTING IN BEIJING
http://www.ihep.ac.cn/english/conference/image002.jpg

Date and Place: 20 April 2009 9:00-12:00
Room C305 Main Building, Institute of High Energy Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences,
19B Yuquan Road, Shijingshan District, Beijing, 100049 P.R. China

Background for the seminar: Volunteer computing is an established technology that enables ordinary citizens

around the globe to contribute to important challenges in fundamental science and medicine, by providing idle

time on their PCs and even partaking in data analysis via the Internet. For scientists, volunteer computing

represents a free and essentially unlimited computing resource. Made popular already a decade ago by the

screensaver project SETI@home, volunteer computing now counts over 50 projects running in a wide variety of

scientific domains, including climate change, astrophysics, earthquake monitoring and epidemiology. Several

million volunteers are contributing to such projects, and many use a common software platform called BOINC

(Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing). However, so far almost all these projects have been

launched by scientists in North America and Europe. Therefore, this seminar aims to increase awareness of

volunteer computing in China.

Scope of the seminar: The objective of the Asia@home seminar is to introduce the technologies underlying

volunteer computing to Chinese scientists who may be interested to use volunteer computing as a tool in their

future research. The seminar includes lectures by four experts in the field, including leading developers of

volunteer computing software as well as scientists who have been applying the technology in fields such as

high-energy physics and malaria epidemiology. In addition, topics such as the interfacing of Grid computing and

cloud computing with volunteer computing will be addressed. The new trend of “volunteer thinking” projects,

where the volunteer does data analysis via a web interface, will also be described. A detailed programme and

list of confirmed lecturers is provided below.

Programme:
9:00      Introduction to volunteer computing and volunteer thinking
David Anderson, Director of SETI@home and BOINC, University of California at Berkeley, USA

10:35   Case study #2: MalariaControl.net: volunteer computing for malaria epidemiology in Africa
                Nicolas Maire, Swiss Tropical Institute, Basel, Switzerland
11:10   Volunteer computing, grid computing and cloud computing: opportunities for synergy
