On 04.12.2017 the Rechenzentrum of the University of Freiburg is hosting an introductory workshop on creation, usage, maintenance and sharing of Virtual Research Environments (VRE). The focus is on Neuroscience-related software (e.g. NEST, Neuron, Tensorflow, Python) but the methods and examples presented can be applied to other scientific fields as well.
 
Learning goals:
- Overall: Learn how to create, use and maintain, and share virtual research environments (VRE) on NEMO or bwCloud.
-- Clarify distinction between the ability to *distribute/reconstruct* a VRE (ViCE) versus the ability to reference/archive/re-execute of VRE (CiTAR)
-- Usage of "conda" for software package management in user space (i.e. no admin required)
-- Create and run singularity containers on HPC for maximum independence from given HPC node operating system and software environment
-- Handle specific or conflicting Python requirements in separate VREs
-- Share VRE images or VRE recipes between users


Prerequisites:
Scientists (students, PhD students, Postdocs) who need well-defined software environments on the bwForCluster NEMO or in the bwCloud that they can control themselves.

Keywords:
Bioconda, Containers, Docker, VRE
