This is just a test!

Pirates@Home is just a test of BOINC, the Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing. Our goal is to develop both experience and software (including a nifty screensave) for Einstein@Home, but we are not actually doing any production computing for that or any other scientific project. (At least not yet.)


The goal of Einstein@Home will be to use distributed public computing to provide the computational power needed to conduct an all-sky blind search for gravitational radiation using data from the LIGO and GEO 600 gravity wave detectors.

If you would like to participate in Einstein@Home when it officially starts then please sign up to be notified when the project is ready for new users.

LIGO and GEO600

Getting Started

To start participating in Pirates@Home you should first read the getting started page.

Other BOINC projects

Several other projects are using BOINC for distributed public computing in support of scientific research. Here are a few that we know of:

A list of many more current and planned projects using distributed computing of all sorts can be found on the Aspenleaf list of distributed computing projects.
