Registration open for a free webinar: The Next Steps for Folding@home

I’ll be presenting a webinar on Folding@home open to the public on Tuesday, May 27, 2014 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM PDT.  You can register on this link:  The goals are to talk about what we’ve been able to do so far and where we’re going.

Summary.  Folding@home is a large-scale volunteer distributed computing project, started in October 1, 2000. For over a decade, new types of hardware (such as GPUs, multi-core CPUs, and PS3) and algorithms have been pioneered in order to make significant advances in our ability to simulate diseases at the molecular scale. Join Professor Vijay Pande from Stanford University for a brief introduction to the goals of Folding@home, followed by the successes so far. Prof. Pande will end with a discussion of what’s being done today, as well as the plans for greatly enhancing what Folding@home can do through new initiatives currently under way. 

Please note that this webinar starts at 9:00 AM Pacific, 12:00 PM Eastern, and 5:00 PM BST.
