ICEI resources are provided to enable the online tutorial on "New interfaces for teaching with NEST: Hands-on with the NEST Desktop GUI and NESTML code generation" that is held on Saturday 18 July at 16:00-23:00 CEST at the 29th Annual Computational Neuroscience Meeting, which takes place in a digital format on 18-22 July 2020.
Participants have the opportunity to learn about NEST, the established community software for the simulation of spiking neuronal network models capturing the full detail of biological network structures. The simulator runs efficiently on a range of architectures from laptops to supercomputers and many peer-reviewed neuroscientific studies have used NEST as a simulation tool over the past 20 years. More recently, it has become a reference code for research on neuromorphic hardware systems. This tutorial provides hands-on experience with recent improvements of NEST and the allocated ICEI/Fenix resources at the Juelich Supercomputing Centre.
