Tutorial Announcement

MIT Lincoln Laboratory is proud to offer a state-of-the-art tutorial in conjunction with HPEC 2010. This half day tutorial will be offered on Tuesday, 14 September 2010 from 1 p.m. – 3 p.m. in S2-180.

Multicore Matlab Tutorial

MatLab is one of the most commonly used languages for scientific computing with approximately one million users worldwide. Many of the programs written in MatLab can benefit from the increased performance offered by multicore processors and parallel computing clusters. The Lincoln pMatLab library (http://www.ll.mit.edu/pMatlab) allows high performance parallel programs to be written quickly using the distributed arrays programming paradigm. This tutorial provides an introduction to distributed arrays programming and will describe the best programming practices for using distributed arrays to produce programs that perform well on multicore processors and parallel computing clusters. These practices include understanding the concepts of parallel concurrency vs. parallel data locally, using Amdah's Law, and a well defined design-code-debug-test process for parallel codes. Tutorial participants will receive a copy of the book, "Parallel MATLAB for Multicore and Multinode Computers" (SIAM 2008).
