CERN launches LHC@home 2.0 volunteer computing initiative
On August 8, researchers at CERN began public beta testing of a new version of the popular volunteer computing project LHC@home 2.0. This allows volunteers for the first time to provide their home and PC resources for performing simulations of the production of final states in the collisions of protons at the energies CERN’s Large Hadron Collider. Thus, volunteers can actively help physicists in the search for new fundamental particles that will provide insights into the origin of our Universe. For distribution of jobs to and harnessing results from the machines of the volunteers, LHC@home 2.0 relies on the CernVM Co-Pilotframework. Development of this framework has been started by Artem Harutyunyan within the work on his PhD dissertation which has been carried out in the ALICE experiment team of ANSL. Currently LHC@home 2.0 project has about 8000 registered volunteers.For more information ,please, see http://boinc01.cern.ch/media.
