Both admitted and non admitted participants will be notified via email on October 20th 2023. 


The workshop will consist of two courses, each approximately 3 hours long

Course 1: Parallel Computing with MATLAB. In this course, attendees will be introduced to parallel computing with MATLAB for solving compute- and data-intensive problems using multicore processors, GPUs and computer clusters. By working through common scenarios to parallelize MATLAB algorithms, attendees will gain an understanding of parallel computing with MATLAB and learn about best practices.

Course 2: Hands-on MATLAB on the HPC computing environment at CINECA. In this hands-on workshop, attendees will learn how to access the pre-exascale, HPC clusters Leonardo to configure and submit jobs and fetch results using MATLAB.


· Optimizing your MATLAB code by utilizing multiple cores

· Scaling up your computations: GPU and Cluster computing

· Working with big data in MATLAB

· Accessing MATLAB on CINECA Leonardo HPC Cluster

· Moving/submitting jobs from your local machine to the CINECA Leonardo HPC Cluster

· Parallel Cluster configuration via local MATLAB GUI

· Remote access to HPC systems and job submission via local MATLAB GUI

Target audience:

The course is aimed at scientific university students, as well as PhD students and researchers. In principle, anyone who meets the required prerequisites can send a request to participate. MATLAB beginners Advanced computing beginners Master of Science and PHD students, and PHD researchers Postdocs and other scientists
