Big simulation in the "New Carro et al. Human Ventricular Cell Model" subproject

Dear all,
We are going to start a big simulation today. This is the last block of the subpropject entitled “New Carro et al. Human Ventricular Cell Model” ( In this last simulation we use an optimization algorithm to improve the model. We estimate that the algorithm will need around 6 or 7 iterations and in each iteration we will send around 160000 new tasks. All this job will run in the CRN application.

We thank you in advance for all the effort and support you give us and we encourage you to spread this great simulation to add more people.

Thank you so much for everything!

Best regards,

Planck contest results

The BOINC Pentathlon is complete, as is our own Planck contest! You can see the results of the Planck contest here and of the Pentathlon here. Congratulations to users Mumps[MM], UofS-Computer-Science, and Bryan, and to team SETI.USA (who also won the Pentathlon)! You guys will be added to the list of thank-yous in our paper.

In the end it was a quite exciting race for the 3rd place user spot, Bryan managed to overtake KaptainBlaZzed with only 45 minutes left in the contest last night! Well done to both of you and many thanks to all of the thousands of users and hundreds of teams that contributed. This was far and away the most computing power I've seen at C@H since I've been managing it, and the workunits you computed will greatly help us improve our work. Stay tuned for a future post about these results.

nbody 1.64 release for Mac

Hey All,

I just released the newest version of nbody, version 1.64, for Mac single and multi-threaded. Please let me know if there are any issues.

PLEASE NOTE: We only have one mac machine for building and testing, meaning I had to test the binaries on the same machine that I built them on. So please let me know if anything strange crashing is seen.

Thank you all for your continued support,

Recent sequence merges

2 of the aliquot sequences we handle have merged with other sequences:

951060 seems to have merged with 398376
372402 seems to have merged with 354620

So 2 more sequences are removed from the to do list of the open sequences below 1 million.

New camb_boinc2docker workunits temporarily disabled

Hi all, in an effort to keep the server functioning smoothly (its operating pretty close to capacity with all the extra traffic from the Pentathlon) I've disabled creation of new camb_boinc2docker jobs until the contest is over on May 19th. All your in-progress camb_boinc2docker work will finish and be validated, this only means no *new* work for this application will be sent out by the server. If you wish to continue crunching Virtualbox applications (like camb_boinc2docker was), there should be enough planck_param_sims jobs, just make sure you haven't explicitly disabled this application in your preferences. Good luck and happy crunching!

Bad Batch of Runs

Hey Everyone,

Looks like I put up a bad batch of runs yesterday. Sorry about that. I took them down so they should be clearing out of the queue soon.

Expect errors from runs named:

Sorry again,
