Welcome to the wiki for the BG/P Open Source project sponsored by Argonne National Laboratory and IBM.

Argonne and IBM are partnering to support the Open Source development of Blue Gene software. The computing community will have access to the bulk of the Blue Gene systems software and can participate in its development. A tentative schedule is shown below. The main open source mailing list is bg-opensource.
