Status update – December 2011
It’s been a very long time since we last posted an update on the progress we make with your contribution, I apologize for this.
The results and findings of the project have been reported to the scientific community at a number of international conferences by members of our research group, including the European Congress on Tropical Medicine and International Health, the Open Knowledge Conference, and the annual meeting of the Swiss Society of Tropical Medicine and Parasitology. At this time, a delegation is presenting the most recent results at the annual meeting of the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene.
One more scientific article – on the potential of case management to prevent re-establishment of malaria in areas where it has been eliminated – has just been accepted for publication. Please find a link to this on the publication list at http://boinc.berkeley.edu/wiki/Publications_by_BOINC_projects#malariacontrol.net if you want to learn more.
Finally, we are planning for an upgrade of the server hardware to host this project. Our current server has been running very reliably for more than four years, but recently we are approaching a capacity limit. Maintenance and monitoring becomes tedious, and we plan to migrate the project to new hardware in Q1 2012.
Thank you for your continued support!
