What:  Using the Neuroscience Gateway Portal for Parallel Simulations
A Satellite Symposium at the 2015 Society for Neuroscience Meeting
Where: Lodation to be announced in downtown Chicago, IL
When:  9 AM - Noon on Saturday, October 17, 2014
Speakers to include:  Amit Majumdar, Subha Sivagnanam,
                       and Padraig Gleeson
Registration deadline:  Friday, October 2, 2015

This workshop is for neuroscientists who need to use parallel
supercomputers for large modeling projects, or analysis and
visualization of brain imaging data.
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 NEST, Pynn, Brian, GENESIS3,
   NEURON and MOOSE.  Also available is the FreeSurfer suite
   of tools for analyzing and visualizing structural and
   functional brain imaging data.

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!
