The theme of the workshop is

The theme of the workshop is "Agency in a Complex World". This theme highlights the intent to show how people can use BOINC to contribute to humanity without anyone’s permission.

The event will include introduction information for people unfamiliar with distributed computing and BOINC, presentations and updates from projects, developers, community organizers, leaders, and members, along with tutorials, workshops, and educational material on BOINC development and use.

This is still in the early stages of development for the workshop and your help is needed to make the best possible event, reaching the most people. The date of the event is still to be determined, but it is expected to take place sometime this winter.
