  abstract =     "BOINC is one of the most employed middlewares in the
                 scientific community. However, the development of BOINC
                 applications could be difficult if the target
                 application is an Interpreted Application such as
                 Matlab, R or Java. The BOINC team provides an
                 intermediate solution, the wrapper, which can run
                 statically linked programs. Nevertheless when the
                 application has lots of dependencies, BOINC will not be
                 able to deploy it. In this paper, we propose to exploit
                 the BOINC infrastructure with Interpreted Applications
                 by complementing the wrapper program with a new
                 application and extending the whole BOINC
                 infrastructure by adding a new vitalisation layer, and
                 best of all without modifying the source code of the
                 interpreted application. Three experiments using
                 well-known interpreted applications -Java, R and
                 Matlab- are performed to demonstrate the viability of
                 running unmodified interpreted applications inside a
                 BOINC infrastructure.",
