CERN Accelerating science

CERN 60 year computing challenge

Our partners in the Citizen Cyberlab project are testing a new browser-based approach to launching virtual machines, as part of a twelve-day Public Computing Challenge celebrating the 60th anniversary of CERN as well as the 10th anniversary of LHC@home. This browser-based approach will be used in a new game about particle physics that is planned for launch next year. If you want to join this challenge and help test the technology, just go to and follow the instructions. Thanks for your help.

For those of you who prefer crunching with BOINC, we are very happy for your valuable contributions on the ATLAS, Sixtrack or Virtual LHC@home BOINC projects.
