High Performance Computing (HPC) Resources for Parallel Simulation and Data Analysis: NSG and HPAC (Workshop during SfN)

Washington DC, exact location TBA

Need free, easy access to HPC resources to run widely used neural simulators or connectome analysis tools?

Interested in new, free HPC tools developed by the HBP, including neuromorphic hardware, simulation and analytics software?

Attend this workshop which starts 9 AM Saturday 11/11/2017 at a downtown Washington DC location TBD. Space is limited, so sign up soon.
