Exclusive MATLAB Workshop

Parallel Computing with MATLAB and Scaling to the Gecko Cluster

MathWorks, Raymond Norris

NTU | 20 Aug 2019 | 9.00am to 1.00pm | Tutorial Room 121, Block SS4 SS4-01-25



During this hands-on self-paced workshop, a MathWorks engineer will introduce you to parallel and distributed computing in MATLAB with a focus on speeding up your application code and offloading compute. 


By working through common scenarios and workflows using hands-on demos, you will gain an understanding of the parallel constructs in MATLAB, their capabilities, and some of the common hurdles that you’ll encounter when using them. 


You’ll also learn how to run your MATLAB code on local HPC resources.
