What:  Using the Neuroscience Gateway Portal for Parallel Simulations
A Satellite Symposium at the 2014 Society for Neuroscience Meeting
Where: Lodation 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 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, 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.
