The Neuroscience Gateway Portal (NSG) eliminates most administrative
and technical barriers to High Performance Computing (HPC) resources,
so that computational neuroscientists can readily use simulators such
as Brian, GENESIS 3, NEST, NEURON, and PyNN to carry out parallel
simulations.  To find out how the NSG can accelerate your own modeling
project, come to the workshop

"Running parallel simulations on HPC resources via the Neuroscience
Gateway Portal"

which starts at 9 AM on Wednesday, July 30, at the CNS 2014 meeting.

The workshop will include a presentation on the NSG itself, plus
* presentations by modelers who are using NSG in their research projects
   --Timothy Rumbell, Mount Sinai School of Medicine, New York, USA:
     "Modeling of cortical neurons in aging monkeys",
   --Marianne Bezaire, University of California Irvine, Irvine, USA:
     "Using the NSG for a large-scale parallel computer model of the
     CA1 network,"
* a presentation by a member of the development team of one of the
   simulators that is available through the NSG
   --Marcel Stimberg, École Normale Supérieure and Institut de la Vision,
     Paris, France:
     "The Brian 2 spiking neuronal network simulation tool"
