To quote that site:
The 5th Pan-Galactic BOINC Workshop

A workshop on volunteer computing and BOINC will be held 22-23 October 2009, at the Institute for Catalan Studies in Barcelona, Spain.

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

Who should attend ?
This year's workshop will be smaller and with a more technical focus than previously. Areas of interest include:

* GPU and multi-thread applications; CUDA and OpenCL
* Virtual machines as application container
* Genetic algorithms for function optimization with volunteer computing
* Scheduling goals and policies
* High-level job submission interfaces: workflows and master/worker systems
* Integrating BOINC with clouds and grids
* Desktop grid computing with BOINC

All participants will present and discuss their work.

The workshop is free but attendance is limited. If you are interested in attending, or have any questions, please email David Anderson, indicating your areas of interest.
