About CAS@home

[June 2010] The objective of CAS@home is to encourage and assist scientists in China to adopt the technologies of volunteer computing and volunteer thinking for their research. The project has three parts:

* Organizing hands-on volunteer computing workshops for researchers from the Chinese Academy of Sciences as well as other scientific institutions in China.
* Launching pilot applications to exploit volunteer computing and volunteer thinking by scientists in China
* Creating a website with essential information about volunteer computing for Chinese scientists, which is this site

The project is led by researchers at the Computer Centre of the Institute of High Energy Physics (IHEP), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS).

The project was officially launched in January 2010, with the support of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. A BOINC server was established at IHEP during the first quarter of 2010. A CAS@home master class with two international experts and over 20 participants was held at IHEP on 9 March 2010. In June, tests began of a volunteer computing project that will distribute Short-Cut Threading, an application about protein structure prediction developed by researchers at the Institute of Computing Technology, CAS. In July and August, researchers from IHEP and the international particle physics laboratory, CERN, will collaborate on developing a new volunteer computing application for simulating particle collisions at IHEP's particle accelerator, BEPC.

I can't find any info on what this project is doing... Project Admin replies to all questions with "please wait" and "we have plans for this".

Should probably be given some more time.

After taking a look at their site, personally I'm going to shy away from this one for the moment. The paucity of information presented about the project by the site, a WIKI that isn't, and apparent unresponsiveness on the forum ... bothers me
