High Performance Computing Resources for Parallel Simulations and Data 
Analysis: NSG and HPAC
Saturday, Nov. 3 from 9 AM to noon at downtown San Diego location.

SUMMARY

This workshop is intended for neuroscientists who need to use high 
performance computing (HPC) resources for computationally intensive 
tasks such as large modeling projects or analysis of neuroimaging data. 
It will examine resources offered by the Neuroscience Gateway Portal 
(NSG https://www.nsgportal.org/) and The Human Brain Project's High 
Performance Analytics and Computing Platform (HPAC 
https://hbp-hpc-platform.fz-juelich.de/). The workshop will combine 
hands-on instruction on how to use NSG with didactic presentations by 
NSG and HPAC developers and discussions with experienced users of these 
resources.

The registration deadline for this workshop is Friday Oct. 12,
but you should sign up early because space is limited. See

OVERVIEW OF NSG AND HPAC

NSG eliminates most administrative and technical barriers, providing 
free CPU time to users, and easy access to widely used software that 
currently includes BluePyOpt, Brian, CARLsim, DynaSim, EEGLAB, 
Freesurfer, GENESIS, Human Neocortical Neuroserver (HNN), Large Scale 
Neural Modeling Simulator (LSNM), MATLAB, MOOSE, NEST, NetPyNE, NEURON, 
Octave, PyNN, Python, R, TensorFlow, and the Virtual Personalized 
Multimodal Connectome Pipeline. NSG's web-based interface simplifies the 
tasks of uploading models or data, specifying job parameters, monitoring 
job status, and storing and retrieving output data.

HPAC provides extensive HPC support for the HBP community. This includes 
developing and providing the hardware and software infrastructure 
required for large scale simulations, data management and analysis, 
visualization, and managing the complex workflows involved in performing 
these tasks.
