The subsidized accommodation for students has been all exhausted. Attendees who need accommodation should make arrangement on their own.

Website recovered from slowness
May 23, 2010

The web site was extremely slow in the past couple of days due to a technical problem with SHARCNET's web server. Those who were unable to register or failed to complete the registration should try again now.

Parallel Computing in Matlab


Matlab is a program that was originally designed to simplify the implementation of numerical linear algebra routines. It has since grown into something much bigger, and it is used to implement numerical algorithms for a wide range of applications. The parallel computing toolbox will enable users to solve computationally and data-intensive problems in a multiprocessor computing environment. This includes high-level parallel data constructs for parallelism, parallel numerical algorithms based on ScaLAPACK, and MPI-based functionality that allows users to more easily design and implement parallel programs without the need to handle low-level details. The tutorials move from the simple examples and lead to more complicated examples, including the fundamentals of parallel programming with Matlab in the SHARCNET environment.

Instructor: Jemmy Hu, SHARCNET, University of Waterloo.

Prerequisites: No prior knowledge of Matlab is assumed.
