The contest to be thanked in our upcoming Planck paper will end on May 5 at 13:00 UTC. Good luck to everyone in the final two weeks!

As a reminder, the top three users and the top team will get thanked by name.

It will likely take a few weeks after the contest is over before the paper is submitted and made public to all of you. During this time, and even afterwards, we will continue to run some Planck jobs as results can still be used during during the paper refereeing process. Some point after that we will no longer need the Planck jobs at all (at least, not in their current form), and we will invite everyone to work on the CAMB jobs which will take priority again.

Thank you everyone that's contributed thus far!

EDIT: Ah, and forgot to mention, in case we run out of the second set of 10k jobs (as shown here), we will add more. So there's no worry of running out of jobs, they'll be available all the way up until the deadline. I think we very well might, we're computing faster and faster, almost 2x the FLOPS than when we started the new app, so thanks :)
