BOINC has added preliminary support for 'low-latency' computing; e.g. delay bounds of minutes rather than days. This requires having clients contact the server frequently; we've added a mechanism that lets the server specify the connection interval. This will be available in the next release (5.6) of the client software. Projects that are interested in using this mechanism should contact us.
