About the conference

High performance computing is extremely important for both science and industry. Deeper understanding of the Universe, precise forecast of natural phenomena, creation of better and more efficient remedies, development of complex machines and equipment, processing of huge banks of data demand more and more computational resources. D​esktop Grid is potentially a very powerful way of organizing high performance computing. Here BOINC has long ago become the de facto standard. However it is by no way easy to use tera-, peta-, and exaFLOPS of potentially available power in BOINC projects.

The Second International Conference "BOINC-based High Performance Computing: Fundamental Research and Development" is devoted to studying potential of distributed Desktop Grid computing, exchange of experience in creation and support of fundamental and applied BOINC projects. Among other, reports concerning technologies of development of distributed applications, processing of data, mathematical modeling of Desktop Grid, fundamental and applied BOINC projects will be presented. The conference will take place from 14 to 18 of September, 2015, in Petrozavodsk, Republic of Karelia.

During the conference a meeting of the Russian Branch of "International Desktop Grid Federation" will be organized.

Conference proceedings will be publiched in the Springer journal "Communications in Computer and Information Science" indexed in Scopus, DBLP, Google Scholar, EI-Compendex, Mathematical Reviews, and SCImago. Chosen reports will be recommended for publication in the Journal of Grid Computing (Impact Factor in 2011 was 1.310), Transactions of Karelian Research Centre of RAS, series Mathematical Modeling and Information Technologies (included to Russian Science Citation Index and is recommended by the Higher Attestation Commission of Russia), and Proceedings of Petrozavodsk State University (included to Russian Science Citation Index and is recommended by the Higher Attestation Commission of Russia).
