Gigabit Ethernet for Volunteer Computing

Project Info

Project Description

The objective of this project is to use volunteer computing for performing computation concerning model ling of the epidemiology.  This project is made in cooperation with Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute and CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research). Swiss TPH provides help concerning data about malaria. The project is based on CERN’s project, called LHC@home, used for performing computation concerning CERN’s physics experiments. My goal is to build a website, which will attract volunteers, who will perform calculations for Swiss TPH on their computers. Main challenge is to win new volunteers. It can be done by building a website that will guide new user through the process of installation of every necessary program and component.  Moreover the website should also be attractive, intuitive and easy for using.
