Join us at the hands-on workshop "Parallel Computing with MATLAB," co-hosted by the Scientific Computing Center (SCC) of KIT and MathWorks Academia Team. Learn the essentials of leveraging parallel CPU and GPU hardware with MATLAB and discover how to use MATLAB interactively with Jupyter on the bwHPC network's HPC systems.

This workshop is designed to introduce MATLAB's parallel computing language constructs, enabling you to tackle compute- and data-intensive challenges effectively with MATLAB. Engage in practical scenarios to parallelize algorithms and learn best practices in parallel computing with MATLAB.


Workshop Content

  • Language constructs for parallel programming in MATLAB

  • Fundamentals of GPU computing using MATLAB

  • Batch processing in MATLAB: understanding and applications

  • Utilizing MATLAB within the Jupyter Hub environment



Participants should have a basic understanding of MATLAB. To enhance your MATLAB skills prior to the workshop, we recommend exploring the self-paced online courses at MATLAB Academy (https://matlabacademy.mathworks.com)

MATLAB Online will be the primary platform used during the workshop, accessible via your web browser. Workshop accounts will be provided, and all course materials will be pre-loaded onto MATLAB Drive.


Target Audience

This workshop is tailored for students and researchers from all disciplines who are engaged with computationally intensive tasks or large datasets and are interested in accelerating their MATLAB code with parallel computing on local hardware or the bwHPC network's HPC resources.


Course Format

The course will be conducted in a hybrid format, available on-site at  C-Pool, Building 20.21, Scientific Computing Center (SCC) Campus Sourth, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Zirkel 2 76131 Karlsruhe. Furthermore, it will be available online as well. An email will be sent for the registered users with the online link before the start of the sessions.
