High Performance Computing (HPC) for neuroscience: Hands-on introduction to supercomputing usage, tools and applications
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.
The project titled “Qbeast Utility Analysis to Market and Enterprise (Quake)” was awarded to HBP SP7 partner Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) in the last call of Horizon 2020 Future and Emerging Technologies Innovation Launchpad.
