2081 SETI@home

Sunday, February 21, 2010: 9:30 AM
Room 11B (San Diego Convention Center)
Dan Werthimer , University of California, Berkeley, CA
Werthimer will discuss SETI@home and several other Berkeley
SETI programs at radio, optical and infrared wavelengths.
Werthimer will also discuss public participation scientific
computing and the enormous real time computing challenges
for next generation SETI experiments and forthcoming radio
telescope arrays.  
SETI@home uses desktop computers from millions of volunteers
to analyze a petabyte of sky survey data from NSF's 300 meter
Arecibo radio telescope in Puerto Rico; SETI@home volunteers
have formed one of our planet's most powerful supercomputers.
Users have the small but captivating possibility their computer
will detect the first signal from a civilization beyond Earth.
