ATLAS@Home

ATLAS@Home is a research project that uses volunteer computing to run simulations of the ATLAS experiment. You can participate by downloading and running a free program on your computer.

ATLAS physicists are continuously comparing their data with both "known" physics and "new" phenomena predicted by alternative models of the universe, particles and interactions. These tasks run on the WLCG Computing Grid and at any one point there are around 150,000 tasks! You can help ATLAS run these tasks by using your computer's idle time to run simulations.
