    Desciption.This project should in my opinion be called LHC@Home2 as it is a project under the new Administration etc of LHC@Home2. See the following:

    This is a test project, to demonstrate the use of the CERN-developed CernVM and BOINCVM systems to harness volunteer cloud computing power for full-fledged LHC event physics simulation on volunteer computers.
    It is the first of what is expected to be a series of physics applications running on the LHC@home 2.0 platform. These applications will exploit virtual machine technology, enabling volunteers to contribute to the huge computational task of searching for new fundamental particles at CERN's LHC.

    LHC@home 2.0 is a volunteer computing platform for physicists working at the Large Hadron Collider - the world's largest particle accelerator - at CERN, the European Particle Physics Laboratory. This platform will host several sub-projects for different LHC physics groups.LHC@home 2.0 is an extension of the LHC@home platform, launched in 2004 to help physicists simulate protons beam dynamics in the LHC. At that time, doing full-fledged simulations of particle collisions was beyond the scope of volunteer computing. But the evolution of computer software and hardware, and in particular the use of virtual machine technology, has enabled a breakthrough...LHC@home 2.0!
    As a result you can now be part of a global effort to simulate data that physicists will use in their analysis of LHC data, by running simulations of particle collisions on your home computer. The first project to run on the LHC@home 2.0 platform - currently in test phase - is called Test4Theory.
