* New Wiki pages
 
* New conferences

* '''Max:''' Cluster and queueing system: In order to avoid that a node is chocked by too many concurrent jobs (this was happening when nodes were using heavily the swap space), we need to tune the number of slots per queue.

* '''New conferences:''' ''None''
 
* '''Announcements and Publications:''' ''None''
 
* '''Cluster and queueing system'''
 
** 1GB of memory has been added to each node of the cluster. Now each node has 2GB or RAM, 4.5GB of swap space, and 20GB of /tmp space for local data storage. Nodes from r02 to r17 have 4x512MB DDR ECC REG DIMM, while nodes from r18 to r33 have 8*256MB DDR ECC REG DIMM.
 
** The queues have been reniced like this: short=nice 2, medium=nice 3, long=nice 3, par=nice 2
 
** The slots for queues have been changed like this: 3 slots in the short queue, 2 slots in the medium queue, 1 slot in the long queue and 1 slot in the parallel queue. We now have maximum 7 concurrent jobs per node (with an average space in RAM of 290MB per process) and 224 maximal concurrent jobs in the whole system.
