This workshop is intended for neuroscientists who are already using, or would like to use, the Neuroscience Gateway Portal (NSG http://www.nsgportal.org/) for parallel simulations. The NSG portal eliminates most administrative and technical barriers that face neuroscientists who need to use high performance computing resources for large modeling projects. Its web-based interface simplifies the tasks of uploading models, specifying job parameters, monitoring job status, and storing and retrieving output data. Simulators currently installed include Brian, MOOSE, NEST, NEURON, PGENESIS, and PyNN. The workshop will combine didactic presentations by NSG's developers, discussions with experienced users, and hands on instruction in how to use the portal.
Registration is limited to 20 individuals on a first-come, first-serve basis.
