[this is a copy/paste of message https://lhcathome.cern.ch/lhcathome/forum_thread.php?id=4884 to make sure it is also posted in this thread]

Dear BOINC Volunteers,

LHCb has been very grateful to the BOINC community in the past years for their support and provisioning of computing resources to run LHCb simulation jobs. Since the start of the service for LHCb you have provided computing resources that allowed us to execute a fantastic amount of 3.1 Million successful jobs which simulated 142'740'087 events. This work considerably contributed to the work of the experiment. Many thanks to you all !!!

Despite this success we have also observed that the work in connection to BOINC operations has grown in the past within the LHCb computing project and after internal discussions we have decided to pause the operations of the service and therefore not to run LHCb applications via BOINC for the time being with the possibility to re-open the service in the future.

Please note that the possibility to contribute computing resources to other BOINC projects stays untouched by this decision and we would like to encourage you to continue supporting also the other projects represented via the LHC@home BOINC service.

For now I would like to re-state my thanks to you, the BOINC community, for your support.

Best regards

Dr. Stefan Roiser
LHCb Computing Project Leader

any news on this?

It's interesting to see that LHCb is still shown on the Server Status Page (while CMS has been removed months ago).
Could this mean that LHCb will be back soon?

Meanwhile, LHCb has disappeared from the Server Status Page.
Which might be bad news :-(

Nevertheless, could anyone from the Team give us any information whether there are chances that LHCb will come back, or whether it's definitely dead -

An almost completely new detector constructed during the two-year-long shutdown: a new LHCb will be begin in 2021.

A major fraction of LHCb's sub-detectors will be replaced or upgraded during the shutdown.
