•Organizing two hands-on volunteer computing workshops for CAS scientists
•Launching three pilot applications to exploit volunteer computing for CAS scientists
•Creating a website with essential information about volunteer computing for Chinese scientists
It is proposed that the project be led by a consortium of CAS institutes, including IHEP, ICT and CNIC.
