Tue Jul 10 13:53:10 CEST 2018
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.
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
The registration deadline for this workshop is Friday Oct. 12,
but you should sign up early because space is limited. See
for more information and a link to the registration form.
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
