8 Feb 2012 Mainz - Desktop Grid resources can now be officially accessed as part of the German D-Grid infrastructure through UNICORE interfaces. The European Desktop Grid Initiative EDGI will therefore organize a two days' workshop from March 1st to March 2nd, 2012 at the Johannes Gutenberg-University in Mainz to give an introduction on how to build up Desktop Grids and how to port applications to be used in Desktop Grids.

Outline of the programme:

Day 1 - 1st March:

  • An introduction to Desktop Grids, EDGI and IDGF - presentation
  • A general introduction to BOINC - presentation
  • Installation of a BOINC server/client - hands-on
  • Application porting to BOINC (methodology, DCI API, GenWrapper) - presentation
  • Porting applications with GenWrapper - hands-on

Day 2 - 2nd March:

  • Porting applications with GenWrapper cont. - questions, answers - hands-on
  • User interfaces (portals and command-line options)
