First East Coast BOINC Meeting

Speaker: Jack Shultz (National Academies) and Andrew Gillette (The Foundation for Computational Learning & Science)

Abstract

This presentation will examine the hidden economics of the BOINC community framework and their counterparts in the world economy. Beginning first with a survey of the average costs incurred by project directors for hosting packages proportional to user base, then following with an examination of the kinds of practical science problems that are being pursued computationally in the private sector, this presentation will compare current trends in computational research with emerging science and technology markets around the globe.
