Volunteer Computing for Africa: Workshop in South Africa, 16 - 22 July 2007

An intensive one-week workshop will be offered to qualified African students interested in the new technology of "Volunteer Computing". This technology, made famous by projects such as SETI@home, can harness the power of tens of thousands of publicly available personal computers around the world on behalf of deserving scientific projects, which adapt their computing problems to it. It is thus of great interest to institutes and universities in developing countries with insufficient computing resources for their research needs. The specific technology to be taught is called BOINC . The workshop is organised by Africa@home, a project funded by the GIAN.

Application forms are available at www.africaathome.org and should be sent to cyber@icvolunteers.org by May15th.
