We're moving closer to completing the analysis of our 18 years of Arecibo data. Recent work has given us a good handle on RFI removal. See the Nebula blog for details.

Выдача заданий приостановлена. После анализа кода выяснилось, что многие дружественные пары программа может пропустить(не найти). Выдача заданий будет возобновлена после изменения кода и дополнительной проверки программы. Предположительно через 1-2 недели. Прошу участников принять мои извинения.

Send tasks suspended. After code analysis revealed that the program can skip many friendly pairs. Send of tasks will be resumed after the code changes and additional verification of program. Presumably 1-2 weeks. I ask members to accept my apology.

The former vLHCathome project has now been migrated here and the old vLHCathome project site has been redirected.

The credit has also been migrated as discussed in this thread.

If your BOINC client complains about a wrong project URL, please re-attach to this project, LHC@home.

Thanks again to all who contributed to vLHCathome and to those who contribute here!

The Help Stop TB team is hard at work analyzing the data they’ve received so far from World Community Grid. They recently chose two new data analysis tools, which will help them better understand the behavior of the bacterium which causes tuberculosis.


“Loading the dice: climate change and extreme weather in Ireland, Europe and the World” Professor Myles Allen, University of Oxford

lundi 27 février 2017 12:17

Monday 27th February, 18.30-20.00  |  Room 1.07  |  Western Gateway Building  |  Western Road, UCC, Cork   |  Tickets free | Eventbrite

 

Professor Allen will explore the role of human influence on climate in recent extreme weather events. The talk will present findings from recent analysis of storms in Ireland and UK to show that we can now answer this question with some degree of certainty.

Myles Allen is Professor of Geosystem Science in the Environmental Change Institute, School of Geography and the Environment and Department of Physics, University of Oxford, and co-Director of the Oxford Martin Programme on Resource Stewardship. His research focuses on how human and natural influences on climate contribute to observed climate change and risks of extreme weather and in quantifying their implications for long-range climate forecasts. He has served on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change 3rd, 4th and 5th Assessments, most recently on the IPCC Synthesis Report Core Writing Team in 2014.

This is a free event open to the public organized by UCC Climate CoLab at the Environmental Research Institute, University College Cork, Ireland.

New native Linux ATLAS application
Source:  vLHCathome-dev
jeudi 23 février 2017 16:48

Hi all,

If you don't use Linux you can ignore the rest of this post. If you do you may be interested in trying the experimental ATLAS app which doesn't use virtualbox but runs natively on Linux.

IMPORTANT!! To run this app you must install CVMFS, the CERN VM File System, and configure it for ATLAS. This file system contains all the software for ATLAS WU and is normally inside the virtual image (the same as for all LHC vbox apps).

A simple installation guide can be found here: https://cernvm.cern.ch/portal/filesystem/quickstart

You should set up the repositories as shown in the example for ATLAS. If you have a squid proxy handy you can specify it there - if not I'm not sure whether it will work or not without configuring one.

Our target for this app is CERN or ATLAS-related institutes who have idle machines with CVMFS already installed, and we do not expect the average volunteer to install CVMFS and run this app. But I think all of you here are above-average volunteers :) and you may be interested in trying it.

Please give feedback on the ATLAS forums. Unfortunately there is no way to check for CVMFS on the client before requesting tasks, so if you don't have CVMFS you can still get these tasks and they will fail straight away. So better to uncheck the ATLAS app if you don't want to run it.
