The Future of POEM@HOME
Dear POEM@HOME community,

first of all we want to express our deepest gratitude for every contributor to our project. Last year we developed a GPU optimized version of SIMONA, which is used as part of POEM@HOME, which speeds up the calculations by various magnitudes. Due to this speedup it has been very hard for us to supply sufficient work to saturate our BOINC project.
Therefore after eight years running, we have so much computational power that we do not require your large and generous contributions to conduct our science anymore. At the same time other, smaller and bigger projects require more computational power than ever.

The GPU accelerated algorithm will be open-sourced so that other groups can use the efficient forcefield freely to conduct research on GPU clusters on their own (the timeframe for this will be until Christmas. The code is ready to be shipped and the paper is written, but needs to be peer-reviewed before).

We are sorry for the hiccups in the last month; we would have liked to prepare a cleaner and better run of the final tasks.

Thank you again for your amazing support and we hope that your contributions will help other BOINC projects from now on. We want to especially thank Vladimir Tankovich for his contributions to the GPU code.

Best regards,
The POEM@HOME admin team

P.S.: We will keep the forums and website open for some time and will gradually empty the queue and shutdown the server daemons after approximately 2 months.

Version 2.30 released & new Project available
Finally the POEM++ Version 2.30 is live.
The test phase a few weeks ago ended successfully, but if you encounter any problems with the new release, please let me know.

Along with the update we have started a new
Peptide project. You can get some information on the linked project page, a visualization of the simulation process will follow.

Die POEM++ Version 2.30 ist jetzt verfügbar.
Die Testperiode vor einigen Wochen war erfolgreich, falls es aber trotzdem Probleme mit dem neuen Release geben sollte, lasst es mich bitte wissen.

Einhergehend mit dem Update haben wir ein neues Peptidprojekt gestartet. Auf der verlinkten Seite gibt es einige Informationen, eine Visualisierung des Simulationsprozesses wird noch folgen.
