8th BOINC Pentathlon - May 5th - 19th 2017

What is this event all about?

The BOINC Pentathlon is a two week long BOINC team competition. Five different projects will be crunched over the two week period.

The BOINC Pentathlon consists of 5 separate "disciplines".

 

  • Marathon (CPU, 14 days)
  • Sprint (GPU or CPU, 3 days)
  • City Run (CPU, 5 days)
  • Cross Country (GPU or CPU, 5 days)
  • Swimming (CPU, 7 days)


The fun and challenging aspect of the Pentathlon is resource management. The 5 "disciplines" are run over a 14 day period, so each "discipline" overlaps another discipline. Figuring out what to run, and when to run it, is what makes the Pentathlon a unique and challenging BOINC points race.

Run-times and projects for each discipline are announced 5 days (Marathon, City Run, Cross Country) or 3 days (Sprint) before their respective start via Blog (Feed , Twitter , Facebook ).
This allows some time to stock up on completed WU's, but it can also be dangerous if you forget to turn in the completed tasks before the deadline. It also adds another twist to resource management, if you are trying to stockpile WU's, while simultaneously running the current active disciplines.

Project Choosing Rules (Click to show)
Quote:
Each team signing up for the BOINC Pentathlon (Registration and Project Selections open until April 27th) can suggest one project for each discipline, except for the Marathon which is chosen by the event organizers. The projects with the largest number of suggestions will be crunched.

Projects are not eligible if they have any of the following attributes:
  • were chosen in last year's Pentathlon (Citizen Science Grid, PrimeGrid, Rosetta@home, theSkyNet POGS, Universe@home)
  • can not provide a sufficient number of workunits
  • support just a few operating systems
  • provide non-CPU-intensive (NCI) applications
  • use buggy or test-only applications
  • do not allow the creation of new accounts
  • don't support WebRPC

To keep this process as transparent as possible, we'll publish the suggestions of every team when announcing the final projects.

 

 

  • OCN Project Nominations:
    • Sprint - Collatz Conjecture
    • City Run - OpenZika
    • Cross Country - Einstein@Home
    • Swimming - DENIS@Home

Polls for our project selections are in each discipline's thread.  All of the threads are linked in the OP. :thumb:

 

Let me know if there are any errors in the threads. :D

For me the prize entry is screwed up and no submit button or a list of people signed up. I'm probably blocking a cookie the form doesn't want me to block....but I don't have any problems with the BGB signups which should be the same.

This is what it looks like for me.

This is what it looks like for me.

Maybe I'll just repurpose an old form. This form was created with the new Google Forms, and the BGB form is from the last iteration of Google forms. I'll check it out later tonight and see if that makes a difference.

My main browser blocks just about everything, but I use a different browser to do the various GDocs for OCN. I'll see what it looks like when I am back in front of my main PC.
