Introduction to the Neuroscience Gateway (NSG) - A Portal for Computational Neuroscience: In-Person

Host Site:

San Diego Supercomputer Center

Host site URL:

This workshop introduces participants to the Neuroscience Gateway (NSG) being developed for the computational neuroscience community with funding from the National Science Foundation. The NSG provides an easy and user-friendly environment to access XSEDE high performance computing (HPC) resources to run computational neuroscience software such as NEURON, GENESIS, MOOSE etc. The NSG provides a simple web-based interface that makes it quick and easy to create an account, upload neuronal model code, run simulations and get back results.

The workshop will begin with an introduction of the NSG followed by a hands-on session demonstrating the usage of the portal for uploading and running neuronal models on XSEDE resources. Attendees will use the NSG portal to upload neuronal models, set appropriate HPC parameters, run simulations using the NEURON software on XSEDE HPC resources, monitor simulation status, retrieve output results etc.

10:00 AM – 10:45 AM (PST): Overview of NSG
• Background of NSG
• Software architecture of NSG
• Functionality of NSG
• How to use NSG
10:45 AM – 11:45 AM (PST): Hands on usage of NSG
• Login
• Neuronal model upload
• Setting parameters
• Submission of simulation to XSEDE HPC resource
• Retrieval (and storage) of output results
11:45 AM – 12:00 PM (PST): Questions and Discussion
