High Performance Computing for neuroscience: Hands-on introduction to supercomputing usage, tools and applications
July 9, 2019 – July 11, 2019
Workshop of the 3rd HBP Curriculum Workshop Series
Neuroscience has become highly interdisciplinary, and supercomputing and good data management strategies have become indispensable for the field. This workshop will set the grounds for students to get started with high-performance computing (HPC)-based research and lays the foundation for them to advance the state of the art in their fields. The workshop will teach scientific computing in Python, include an introduction to HPC and hands-on trainings for applications that can be used on supercomputers and standard computers, e.g. the simulators NEST and Arbor as well as visualisation tools.
