2014 SFN Mtg Workshop: NSG Portal for parallel simulations

Post by ted » Tue Sep 09, 2014 2:49 pm

What: Using the Neuroscience Gateway Portal for Parallel Simulations
A Satellite Symposium at the 2014 Society for Neuroscience Meeting
Where: Location to be announced in downtown Washington, DC
When: 9 AM - Noon on Saturday, November 15, 2014
Speakers to include: A. Majumdar, S. Sivagnanam, and T. Carnevale
Registration deadline: Friday, October 31, 2014

Do you have a large scale modeling project that exceeds the speed or capacity of your local hardware? Have you tried to use high performance computing (HPC) resources at your own institution, but found the process too difficult because of administrative or technical barriers?

If yes, this workshop is for you. In a single morning session, you will learn how to use the Neuroscience Gateway Portal (NSG)
http://www.nsgportal.org/
which is designed for neuroscientists who need to use HPC resources for large modeling projects. It simplifies every aspect of the process, from getting allocations of free CPU time to uploading your model, launching and monitoring jobs, and downloading results. The NSG already has several parallel simulators installed, including Brian, NEST, NEURON, PGENESIS and PyNN.

Space is limited, so sign up quickly. See
http://www.neuron.yale.edu/neuron/stati ... g2014.html
for further details and the registration form.

Support:
The NSG project is supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation. NSG provides its users free allocations of CPU time on HPC resources under the auspices of XSEDE (Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment), which is also supported by NSF.
