此外,在这次会议上,与会者同意CAS@home平台背后的科学人员和开发人员应当向志愿者分享更多关于CAS@ home计划及相关事宜的详细信息。这也正是许多CAS@home的志愿者所希望的。因此,从发布这篇新闻事项开始,我们将竭尽所能提供更多的更新。

BOINC的开发者David Anderson在加州大学伯克利分校远程参加会议。同时我们也与中国科学院北京基因组研究所讨论了正在开发当中的新应用。



CAS@home just started testing a new application called LAMMPS on the main CAS@home server. The application is for simulating nanoscale systems of molecules using a technique called molecular dynamics. A novel job submission system has been created for this application by researchers at CAS Institute of High Energy Physics and UC Berkeley.

The scientists using this new application are from the Centre for Nano and Micro Mechanics (CNMM), Tsinghua University. Successful submission of first test jobs was demonstrated at a CAS@home meeting held at CNMM yesterday [link:]. After some more testing, CNMM researchers expect to start sending a steady stream of LAMMPS jobs to the main CAS@home server. This will be for fundamental research on how different molecules interact with nanotubes.

Also at the meeting, the participants agreed that the scientists and developers behind CAS@home should share more information about the plans and events of CAS@home with the volunteers. It is something that many of you CAS@home volunteers have been asking for. So starting with this news item, we will try our best to provide more frequent updates.

At the meeting we had scientists from CAS Institute of High Energy Physics, CAS Institute of Computing Technology, CAS National Astronomical Observatories of China, CAS Institute of Zoology, the Centre for Nano and Micro Mechanics (CNMM) of Tsinghua University, and Tsinghua's Departments of Industrial Engineering and Chemical Engineering. David Anderson, Director of BOINC, joined remotely from UC Berkeley. We also discussed an application under development with the CAS Beijing Institute of Genomics.

So it seems CAS@home is gaining interest of many people in the Chinese scientific community, and we look forward to seeing some exciting new applications on CAS@Home in the coming months. As usual, thanks to all the volunteers – you are the heart of CAS@home!
