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

This workshop is for neuroscientists who need to use parallel
supercomputers for large modeling projects.  With support from
NSF, we have been developing the Neuroscience Gateway Portal (NSG)
http://www.nsgportal.org/, which
* provides free CPU time on NSF-supported high performance
   computing resources
* has a browser-based interface that simplifies the tasks of
   uploading models, specifying job parameters, monitoring job
   status, and storing and retrieving output data
* already has many widely-used simulatiors optimally installed
   and configured, including Brian, GENESIS3, NEST, NEURON,
   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.  Come find out how the NSG can be useful in your
own research!
