SETI.Germany to organize BOINC Pentathlon

17 Apr 2014 Berkeley - SETI.Germany invites all BOINC teams to the 5th BOINC Pentathlon, a competition inspired by the Pentathlon in ancient Greece. Teams will compete between May 5 and May 19 at five different BOINC projects to determine the overall winner.

Just like in ancient GreeceSETI.Germany will also perform this BOINC Pentathlon by running 5 different disciplines. This means within 2 weeks the participants will need to crunch 5 different projects, each for 5 days.

The team achieving the most points in all disciplines will win the BOINC Pentathlon. But of course there will also be a winner chosen for each single discipline. More information can be found by checking the rules.

Each team that wants to participate in the BOINC Pentathlon needs to sign up at http://www.seti-germany.de/boinc_pentathlon/22_en_Welcome.html .
