The venue for the Crowd Computing 2014 Event has changed. The event will now take place at the headquarters of the IDGF Foundation - Manuscriptstraat 32 - 1321 NN Almere, The Netherlands.
The International Desktop Grid Federation is organising its first member meeting on September 24, 2014.
The first IDGF member meeting is co-located with two other events: a one-day tutorial on Crowd & Computing on September 23, and a workshop on Citizen Science Technology Platforms on September 25. The whole three-day event will take place under the umbrella of the Crowd Computing 2014 Event.
The IDGF technical meeting will concentrate on topics that are of direct interest to the members and member organisations of IDGF, especially those who operate Desktop Grids or Crowd Computing as we call it today.
