What:  This workshop is intended for neuroscientists who are engaged
in computationally intensive tasks such as large modeling projects
or analysis of neuroimaging data.  With support from NSF, we are
developing and expanding the Neuroscience Gateway Portal (NSG,
http://www.nsgportal.org/), which eliminates most administrative
and technical barriers involved in using high performance computing
(HPC) resources.

NSG offers free computing time and has a simple user interface so
you can focus on productive research.  Software currently installed
includes the Freesurfer Software Suite, the Virtual Brain Empirical
Data Pipeline (Schirner et al., 2015), and simulators such as Brian,

This workshop will combine didactic presentations by NSG's developers,
discussions with experienced users, and hands on instruction in how to
use the portal.

Where: Downtown Chicago, site TBA.
When: 9AM - Noon on Saturday, October 17, 2015.
Speakers: Amit Majumdar, Subha Sivagnanam, Padraig Gleeson,
           Simon Rothmeier, Ted Carnevale
Registration deadline: Friday, October 2, 2015
