ABSTRACT
In this paper, we propose ALICE Connex, a prototype of volunteer mobile computing platform for ALICE experiments. The platform adopts the volunteer computing concept on mobile devices. Untapped computing power of smartphones can be aggregated and exploited to help calibrate the ALICE's Time of Flight (TOF) particle detector. ALICE Connex will be built based on BOINC, which is a well-known volunteer computing middleware. ALICE Connex will offer an outreach service to connect ALICE to young generations by way of edutainment and volunteer computing allowing them to be a part of the big sciences at CERN.
