PSC Neuroscience Workshop

The Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center is offering a workshop on
"SIMULATIONS IN COMPUTATIONAL NEUROSCIENCE", June 11-14, 1997.

Participants in this workshop will learn to use PGENESIS, a
parallel version of the GENESIS simulator, and PNEURON 
(under development), a parallel version of the NEURON simulator.

Both PGENESIS and PNEURON are suitable for large scale parallel 
search of parameter space for single neuron and neuronal network 
models. PGENESIS is also suitable for parallel simulation of 
very large network models.

Both of these packages run on single workstations, workstation
networks, small-scale parallel computers and large massively 
parallel supercomputers, providing a natural scale-up path.

Familiarity with the non-parallel version of GENESIS or NEURON is
preferred but not required. Techniques for parallel search of 
parameter space and for decomposition of network models will be 
two foci of the workshop. Participants are encouraged to bring 
their models to the workshop.

Instructors:
Michael Vanier, Caltech
John Klopp, UCLA
Michael Hines, Yale
Nigel Goddard, PSC
Greg Hood, PSC

Financial Information
Hotel accommodations during the workshop for researchers affiliated
with U.S. academic institutions will be paid by our NIH grant.
Complimentary breakfast and lunches also will be provided.
There is no registration fee for this workshop. All other costs 
incurred in attending (travel, other meals, etc.) are the  
responsibility of the individual participant.
