Volunteer Computing with BOINC

SESSION: S14: Volunteer Computing with BOINC

EVENT TYPE: Tutorial

TIME: 1:30PM - 5:00PM

Presenter(s):David Anderson


The global pool of desktops, laptops, tablets, mobile devices owned by the general public has a computing capability of about 20 ExaFLOPS, growing to 100 ExaFLOPS by 2012. Volunteer computing is a mechanism by which these resources can be used for scientific computing. It is currently being used by 50 projects in diverse areas, with an aggregate throughput of over 10 PetaFLOPS. This tutorial will teach participants how to use BOINC, the leading software platform for volunteer computing. BOINC is open-source software, funded by NSF and developed at UC Berkeley. We will cover the process of setting up a BOINC server, porting applications, and processing jobs. On completion, attendees will be able to create new volunteer computing projects in a day or two.
