PRPNet October Challenge Nové okno
Join us over that the Wall-Sun-Sun prime search from the 10th till 30th of October. The Coma Wall is the largest Wall in the Universe and we'll be using this Wall of Sun's as the theme of the challenge. Discussion and more information can be found here: 2015 PRPNet October Challenge. Good luck!

CMS simulation beta tasks Nové okno
As part of the preparations to run more physics simulations on the Virtual LHC@home platform, we have submitted a few work units with the CMS beta application on this project.

If you wish to try one of these, you need to configure your BOINC project preferences to accept beta test applications. Furthermore, you need to ensure that your computer can run 64 bits VMs. (VTX must be enabled.)

If you prefer to stay with Theory simulations only, you can indicate this in your BOINC project preferences for this project.

2015 Fundraiser for Milky Way Research Nové okno
Hello Everyone,

Our fundraising campaign kicks off today. If you are willing and able to financially support Milky Way research (I know many of you already support us with your computations), we would really appreciate it! Click the link to find a letter, video, budget, and a description of our thank-you gifts. The goal seems daunting, but donations of $5, $10, or $20 really do add up and make a difference. If you can afford $100, then we will send you a very nice astronomer-designed T-shirt as a token of our appreciation.

For more information take a look at our fundraiser page here.

World Animal Day starts October 4th, 2015, 18:00 UTC Nové okno
People have always had an interesting relationship with animals. We hunt them for food, we keep livestock for food too but we also use them for labor and keep them as pets and love them like family. In honor of this relationship there is a special day, World Animal Day. To mark this day, PrimeGrid invites every one to participate in the challenge starting at 18:00 utc on October 4th, 2015 it will run for five days until October 9th, 2015, 18:00 UTC For questions, banter, information you can go to this thread in our forums. Please do spread the word and join the fun!

New task Nové okno
Hi All,

We ran out of WUs and it will take some time to get new tasks defined for ATLAS@home.

The new task will be available ASAP.

Thank you for your support!

[dna,subset_sum] new workunits! Nové okno
Hi Everyone,
Sorry for the lack of updates recently. Two back to back trips at the beginning of the semester made things a bit crazy. I've started up a new large batch of DNA@Home runs -- let me know how they're going.

Are we re-crunching old wus?? Just a curiosity

Nope! This is a modified data set of runs which we're going to use to do some comparisons to the runs we had published in our escience paper.

Basically, our first batch of runs found a lot of motifs that were repeated sequences 'AAAAAA' or 'GGGGGG' so this batch has updated sequences with regions of high repeats removed.

Sieve in Production; Large and Solo deprecated Nové okno
The collatz_sieve applications have been changed from beta to production status so all volunteers will now be getting them. I also increased the sieve workunit size by 4 times. I expect it will take BOINC a while to re-adjust it's runtime estimates as they are based on floating point calculations which aren't used in Collatz except to show the percent complete. I deprecated the solo_collatz and large_collatz applications and disabled the associated work generators. Any that are in progress will still be validated, you just won't get any new solo or large WUs since you will receive sieve WUs instead. If the sieve application fails immediately after it starts, you probably need to install the latest Microsoft Visual C++ runtime and, since BOINC will send your computer both 32 and 64 bit applications, you will need to install both the 32 and 64 but C++ runtime (see main page for a link or just Google it).

A thank you and some science updates Nové okno
Dear malariacontrol.net supporters, It has been some time since we sent you a science post, not because we haven't been busy, quite the contrary. But before sharing exciting science, we'd like to express our deep gratitude for your continued support and computational time. Thank you! We had a busy few years working on important topics in malaria research and global health: from vector control strategies in pre-elimination countries, to optimization of malaria control tools in support of the Global Fund applications, to key analyses for policy decisions on malaria vaccines. Just to name a few. Here are some recent articles we would like to share with you: Malaria Vaccines: You may have read recently in the news that the world may be close to the first malaria vaccine being approved for use in sub-Saharan Africa. The European Medicines Agency (EMA) adopted a positive scientific opinion for the malaria vaccine RTS,S, also known as Mosquirix, in children aged 6 weeks to 17 months. This is a key step in the regulatory process towards making RTS,S available for the population at risk of malaria in sub-Saharan Africa. The next step involves WHO reviewing the evidence base for RTS,S and making a policy recommendation for if and how this vaccine should be used alongside other tools to prevent malaria in different endemic settings. The policy recommendation is meant to provide technical guidance to endemic countries considering the vaccine introduction. The WHO has indicated that such a policy recommendation may be possible still in 2015. The modelling team and your work contributed to assessment of the vaccine in terms of its expected public health impact and cost- effectiveness, providing information in addition to the clinical trial data. Some of this work was recently published "The public health impact of malaria vaccine RTS,S in malaria endemic Africa: country-specific predictions using 18 month follow-up Phase III data and simulation models" by Melissa Penny and our team at Swiss TPH You can access the article here: http://www.biomedcentral.com/1741-7015/13/170 Thanks for your help! Malaria Dynamics We also recently published on another important issue: reasons for potential shift of burden to older ages with partially effective malarial interventions. Simulations from OpenMalaria were used to address this, so we thank you for your support. "Age-shifting in malaria incidence as a result of induced immunological deficit: a simulation study" by Peter Pemberton-Ross in our modelling team at Swiss TPH You can access the article here: http://www.malariajournal.com/content/14/1/287 Cost Effectiveness of Malaria Control Interventions Tools that allow for in silico optimization of available malaria control strategies can assist decision-making process for prioritizing interventions. One such example : "Modeling the Cost Effectiveness of Malaria Control Interventions in the Highlands of Western Kenya" by Erin Stuckey previously with our modelling team at Swiss TPH you can access the article here: http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0107700 Again thank you for your continued support and volunteering computer time! Best regards, Melissa Penny and the malaria modelling team at Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute.
