The Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing (BOINC) is an open source middleware system for volunteer and grid computing. It was originally developed to support the SETI@home project before it became useful as a platform for other distributed applications in areas as diverse as mathematics, medicine, molecular biology, climatology, and astrophysics. The intent of BOINC is to make it possible for researchers to tap into the enormous processing power of personal computers around the world.

Dr. Wenjing Wu is a young research assistant from Institute of High
Energy of Physics(IHEP), Chinese Academy of Sciences. Her main
research interests are in distributed computing and massive storage
systems. She received her PhD degree on “Computer application
technology” from IHEP in Jan, 2010. Her doctoral dissertation is about
the ” research on performance of grid storage system over 10Gb
networks”, and she finished all the related research work at
University of Michigan in 2 years. She has been working on Grid
Computing since 2006, mainly in the High Energy Physicis field,
including ATLAS, BELLEII, BESIII experiments.   Later she found her
new interests in volunteer computing, and leads the first Chinese
volunteer computing project CAS@home which is a BOINC based platform
hosting multiple scientific computing applications.
