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.

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, [email protected], theSkyNet POGS, [email protected])
  • 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.
