2nd HPAC Platform Training

Marsilius-College, Heidelberg University, Heidelberg, Germany

Neuroscience research has become increasingly interdisciplinary in recent years. New imaging technologies deliver ultra-high resolution images, and new simulator technology enables scientists to simulate larger and more detailed neural networks. Such data can no longer be analysed and such simulations can no longer be run solely on a user’s computer in the office: clusters, supercomputers and good data management strategies have become indispensable.

During this 2nd HPAC Platform Training Event we will give an introduction to the resources, tools and services provided by the High Performance Analytics and Computing (HPAC) Platform and by the Fenix infrastructure. The different options to get access to High-Performance Computing (HPC) and data resources, as well as how to use Fenix resources and services in workflows will be presented, including sessions on how to transfer between HPC sites and how to access resources from Jupyter notebooks in the HBP Collaboratory. The participants will get an overview of the visualization tools available in the HBP. The simulators NEST, for models with point-neurons, and Arbor, for models with multi-compartment neurons, will be introduced.
