HBP School - The Brain Simulation Platform of the Human Brain Project

17-21 September 2018, Palermo, Italy

This school will introduce participants to the Brain Simulation Platform (BSP) of the Human Brain Project (HBP), with the main aim to train users on how to exploit the possibilities offered by the platform to implement cellular level computational models, to use high performance analytics and computing platform systems to configure and run a simulation, and to visualise/analyse the results.

Both short lectures and longer afternoon activities will be delivered at a basic and intermediate level. Through tutorials and hands-on activities, attendees will learn how to interact with the BSP to carry out their own research, to set up and manage a data-driven collaborative project, or to use the BSP to interact with the HBP Neuroinformatics Platform.

Participants will be encouraged to introduce new ideas and suggest ways to use their original experimental data/techniques to implement/use the multiscale neural model they would like to investigate.
