What is Acoustics@home?

Acoustics@home is a BOINC-based volunteer computing project aimed at solving inverse problems in underwater acoustics. You can contribute to our research by running a free program on your computer.

Join Acoustics@home


New experiment is coming soon
Results of the first experiment will be discussed in a paper, which will be submitted to the
BOINC:FAST'2017 conference.
We also work on the next experiment, which will be launched soon.

New paper
A paper, in which it is described how we solve the inversion problems in underwater acoustics, was published. In this paper we consider the calculations performed on a computing cluster. Recently the similar calculations are performed in Acoustics@home.

Опубликована статья, в которой описано, как мы решаем обратные задачи подводной акустики. В этой статье рассматриваются вычисления, запущенные на кластере. В настоящий момент схожие вычисления мы запускаем в проекте Acoustics@home.

Credit compensation
All results, which were mistakenly marked as invalid, were marked as valid. The corresponding amount of credits were added to hosts, users and teams. I hope it will at least partially fix the problem.

Validation bug was fixed
Bug with validation of WUs results from different OSs (windows and Linux) was fixed. Sorry for this. Now validation is working in a proper way.
