The 3rd Pan-Galactic BOINC Workshop

A workshop on BOINC will be held 5-6 September 2007 in Geneva, Switzerland. It is being hosted by the Geneva International Academic Network, with additional support from IBM. The organizers are David Anderson (UCB), Francois Grey (CERN), Randall Harbour (GIAN), Viola Krebs (ICVolunteers) and Christian Pellegrini (Univ. of Geneva).

The workshop follows the First and Second Pan-Galactic BOINC Workshops.

The objective of this workshop is to share information about BOINC and projects running on BOINC through short presentations and informal discussions, in a relaxed, open and friendly atmosphere. The workshop aims to stimulate new developments and activities related to BOINC, by allowing users to share their experience and requirements, giving developers the opportunity to outline their plans, and stimulating new collaborations between participants.
