Learn How to Contribute to Science

The Test4Theory team is excited to announce their first P2PU challenge to help people to become a volunteer contributor to scientific projects at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN). You might be more familiar with CERN’s giant particle accelerator, the famous Large Hadron Collider (LHC).

Participants in the Test4Theory/P2PU challenge  will be welcomed into to the world of volunteer science. Joining different research projects and solving easy tasks is facilitated through BOINC, an open source software built for volunteer computing.

In detail, Test4Theory is a project that demonstrates the use of their software systems (CernVM & BoincVM) to harness volunteer cloud computing power for full-fledged LHC event physics simulation on volunteer computers.

No longer distant are your dreams of crunching numbers from the Large Hadron Collider! The door to the world’s fastest particle accelerator is open. If you’re keen on seeing even more possibilities like this one, join the P2PU Test4Theory study group, and help them create more opportunities for open science.
