The folks over at MathWorks will be holding a half-day tutorial session on using Parallel MATLAB. The session, entitled “Enhancing e-Infastructures with Advanced Technical Computing: Parallel MATLAB on the Grid”, will be given by Erwin Laure and Arjav Chakravarti. From their note:
This tutorial will discuss how scientist and engineers can take advantage of Grid resources while making minimal to no code changes to applications written in a high-level programming language. Attendees will first learn to express task- and data-parallelism in the MATLAB(r) language, by using high-level constructs like parallel-for loops and distributed arrays as well as low-level message-passing APIs. Attendees will then learn how to use the EGEE Grid (Enabling Grids for E-sciencE project funded by the European Commission) to enable the solution of their computationally-intensive and data-intensive large-scale technical problems. Hands-on exercises will allow attendees to interactively develop parallel programs on multicore laptop machines and then scale these programs to the EGEE Grid through the gLite middleware.
