recent staff changes in PACE

Posted by on Friday, 29 August, 2014

I’m sorry to report that Dr. Wesley Emeneker has left the team for a position in industry. We are sad to see him leave, and wish him and his family the best in his future endeavors. We will be posting a Research Scientist position soon to fill this vacancy.

Ann Zhou <dzhou62@mail.gatech.edu> has joined the team as a Systems Support Engineer II. Ann joins us from Columbus State University and will be initially focused on user and hardware support, and taking over some of the system administration work that Wes had been doing.

We are concluding a search to fill the Senior System Support Engineer position vacated by Adam Munro earlier this year. An offer is pending, and I’m hopeful this person will start soon.

Finally, we have a search currently underway for an Applications Developer II. The position description is available at http://pace.gatech.edu/application-developer-ii. Please pass the word along to anybody who may have interest.

Matlab Seminars at Georgia Tech

Posted by on Friday, 8 August, 2014

Develop your MATLAB skills by joining a MathWorks engineer for complimentary seminars to be held on Tuesday, August 19, 2014 in the Bill Moore Student Success Center, press room A.  Register in advance at:  https://www.mathworks.com/PACEseminars

Location
Bill Moore Student Success Center, (behind Highland Bakery, next to the football stadium), second ‘R’ floor, press room A – August 19, 2014

Session 1: Optimizing and Accelerating your MATLAB Code
10:00 AM – 12:30 PM
In this session, we will demonstrate simple ways to improve and optimize your code that can boost execution speed.  We will also address common pitfalls in writing MATLAB code, explore the use of the MATLAB Profiler to find bottlenecks, and introduce programming constructs to solve computationally and data-intensive problems on multicore computers, clusters and GPUs.

  • Leveraging the power of vector and matrix operations in MATLAB
  • Identifying and addressing bottlenecks in your code
  • Utilizing additional processing power available in multicore machines, clusters, and grids

Session 2: Advanced Programming Techniques in MATLAB
1:00 PM – 3:00 PM
This master class covers two important MATLAB topics:

  • How to handle memory efficiently
  • How to choose among the rich set of function types

You will gain an understanding of how different MATLAB data types are stored in memory and how you can program in MATLAB to use memory efficiently.  We will illustrate and explore the usage and benefits of the various function types under different conditions. You will learn how using the right function type can lead to more robust and maintainable code. Demonstrations will show you how to apply these techniques to problems that arise in typical applications.
