Maxim, The project is

Maxim,

The project is likely to keep running as long as there is data to be analyzed. Years, in other words. It will undoubtedly run different searches over time, but there is not yet any planned shutdown. It's not like it will stop when the first signal is detected. That will just be the beginning of the fun!

Hopefully I would want it to never run out. Think about what it could find. I am just crunching the project and Ithink that as long as we are here to help out then there probally will allways be work for us to crunch. As for current work units. As long as there is enough I won't stop running the project.

I don't allow them to stop.

They may stop if they release a gravitational tidal-map map of our local group. ;-)
