What: Using the Neuroscience Gateway Portal for Parallel Simulations
       A Satellite Symposium at the 2013 Society for Neuroscience Meeting
Where:  Downtown San Diego, CA, just a short walk from the
         convention center
When: 9 AM - Noon on Saturday, Nov. 9, 2013
Speakers: A. Majumdar, S. Sivagnanam, K. Yoshimoto, and T. Carnevale
Registration deadline: Friday, October 25, 2013

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 monotoring jobs, and downloading results.
The NSG already has several parallel simulators installed, including
Brian, MOOSE, NEST, NEURON, PGENESIS and PyNN.

Space is limited, so sign up quickly.  See

for further details and the registration form.
