Gridcoin Poll: Should we sponsor the BOINC Workshop in 2017?





  • What's the topic that requires a poll?

    David Anderson (Lead BOINC dev) has proposed a BOINC Workshop in 2017, there have not been workshops for the last 2 years due to significant funding issues (thanks NSF!).

    Should we sponsor the workshop? We could potentially help offset the cost of holding the workshop/conference with a couple/few thousand $ of GRC. For now, it's a yes/no poll - a poll with the size of funding will follow at a later date (depending on the outcome of this poll).

    Resources for decision:
