The problem of crystal structure prediction is very old and does, in fact, constitute the central problem of theoretical crystal chemistry. In this paper, we talk about the USPEX evolutionary algorithm. Here we present the distributed computing implementation of the USPEX based on a popular BOINC volunteer computing platform. In the talk we present experimental results and discuss project performance.
