NEEShub Boot Camps

<< Back to Quake Summit Program

This is a tentative program and is subject to change.

Wednesday, August 7th

  • Session #1 - Introduction to NEEShub Project Warehouse and Databases
    8:00 am - 8:30 am
    This NEEShub Boot Camp session will introduce the basic NEEShub features that facilitate research. It will also provide an introduction to Data Management guidelines and to the Databases resource. The Data Management presentation will specifically focus on the NEEShub Project Warehouse. Topics to be covered will include recommended file formats, necessary metadata, and organization of data files.

  • Session #2 – Data Upload and Visualization in the NEEShub 
    (This is a hands-on session, so participants will need to bring a LAPTOP. Tablets will not suffice.)
    8:30 am - 9:30 am
    This NEEShub Boot Camp session will feature hands-on exercises designed to help familiarize users with the tools that are most commonly used for uploading data to and for visualizing data on the NEEShub. These tools include the Project Editor, Project Explorer for NEES (PEN), the interactive Display for Earthquake Engineering Data (inDEED), and the inDEED Authoring tool.

Break: 15 minutes

  • Session #3 – Computational Simulation on the NEEShub
    (This is a hands-on session, so participants will need to bring a LAPTOP. Tablets will not suffice.)

    9:45 am - 11:00 am
    The NEEShub cyberinfrastructure provides powerful computational capabilities for simulation of engineering systems. These capabilities include running computational models on the NEEShub, submitting models to high performance computing environments, and sharing simulation models with the rest of the community. This hands-on cyber simulation workshop will help you explore the different methods to run simulations on the NEEShub.

  • Session #4 – New functionality in NEEShub
    11:00 am - 11:30 am
    The NEEScomm IT team will demonstrate new functionality added to NEEShub in Release 5 (June 2013). Highlights include a tabular view of the Project Warehouse to support comparison between experiments, a modified structure to support Hybrid Simulation, and a prototype to easily move simulation results into the Project Warehouse.
