Last week, from 2 to 3 September, GridCast headed over to the Citizen Cyberscience Summit, held at Kings College London, to find out all the latest about volunteer computing.

Their team of bloggers was on hand throughout the meeting to get the lowdown on the use of volunteer computing in everything from protein folding to searching for signs of extraterrestrial intelligence.

Highlights include:

• David Anderson, director of the SETI@home project, Space Sciences Laboratory, UC Berkeley;

• George Dyson, historian and philosopher of science and author of Darwin Among The Machines;

• Myles Allen, head of ClimatePrediction.net at Oxford University.

But that's not all! Take a look at more videos, photos and discussion from last week's summit at the GridCast blog, especially François Grey's thoughts on the event in this podcast.
