Meet Your Fellow Volunteer Computing Enthusiasts at the BOINC Workshop 2019

We're excited host this year's BOINC Workshop in Chicago, Illinois, USA. If you're reading this, you're part of the BOINC community and we'd like to meet you.

It's almost that time of year again...the 13th annual BOINC Workshop is happening from July 9 to July 12, and registration is now open. This year, the workshop is being hosted by World Community Grid in IBM's Chicago offices.

Attendees to the 2019 workshop are invited to give a 15-30 minute presentation about the work they are doing with BOINC.

All scientists, project administrators, developers, volunteers, and anyone with an interest in volunteer computing will be welcome to attend. Past BOINC Workshops have covered topics such as presentations on the science supported by BOINC projects, ideas for future development, how GDPR may affect the ways that BOINC projects handle data, and suggestions for simplifying volunteer registration. You can see all of the presentations from last year's workshop here, and listen to audio from the workshop here.  

At the workshop, attendees will have the opportunity to learn what other attendees are doing with BOINC software and volunteer computing, learn about what has happened with BOINC since the last workshop, participate in a hackfest where we attendees team up to solve some challenges, and get to know others in the community.

Registration is free. We'll update the BOINC Workshop 2019 page as more information becomes available, but in the meantime feel free to ask any question in the workshop forum thread.

See you in Chicago!
