nanoHUB is a research project, based at nanoHUB.org, that uses Internet-connected computers to do research in nanoscience and nanotechnology. You can contribute to our research by running a free program on your computer.
In order to participate, you will need the following programs installed on your computer
This project supports over 200 simulation tools deployed at nanoHUB.org. These tools are used for both education and research, and they enable simulations that can run in a few minutes or over several hours. The memory requirements can also vary widely, depending on the input parameters to the simulation.
The "temporary" slowdown ran longer than we thought it would. The systems that send nanoHUB jobs to BOINC had significant updates. The BOINC server will be down briefly sometime in the next few days as we increase the server size to support more running WUs. We will post an update on that shutdown as soon as we know.

We had several major software updates on January 7 on the nanoHUB servers that produce work for this project. Due to these updates, we are not producing new workunits right now. We will resume production in the next day or so.

ALPHA TEST: short return time
The short job return time was intended to address some limits in our internal tools, used to produce BOINC workunits from nanoHUB simulation files. We are
working to remove these limits.

ALPHA TEST: job requirements
We posted a bit more information about the scope of the project on the front page. The 200+ nanoHUB simulation tools that are producing workunits for this project can create simulations with a wide range of time and memory requirements. We are still working to produce batches of workunits that are NOT all long simulations or all high memory simulations. We have been accumulating statistics on previous workunits to address this problem.
