Parallel Computing with MATLAB and Scaling to HPC on PACE clusters at Georgia Tech

This entry was posted by on Wednesday, 28 April, 2021 at

MathWorks and PACE are partnering to offer a two-part parallel computing virtual workshop, taught by a MathWorks engineer, to PACE users and other members of the Georgia Tech community.

During this self-paced, hands-on workshop, you will be introduced to parallel and GPU computing in MATLAB for speeding up your application and offloading computations.  By working through common scenarios and workflows, you will gain an understanding of the parallel constructs in MATLAB, their capabilities, and some of the issues that may arise when using them. You will also learn how to take advantage of PACE resources, which are available to all researchers at Georgia Tech (including a free tier available at no cost), to scale your MATLAB computations.

Register by noon on May 14 at

·      Speeding up programs with parallel computing
·      Working with large data sets
·      GPU computing
·      Scaling to PACE clusters (Phoenix, Hive, ICE, or Firebird)

This virtual workshop will be held in two parts:
Part I, Tuesday, May 18, 1-4 PM, will focus on speeding up MATLAB with Parallel Computing Toolbox.
Part II, Tuesday, May 25, 1-4 PM, will focus on running MATLAB parallel code on PACE clusters.

Who should attend?
PhD students, post docs and faculty at Georgia Tech that want to (Part I) use parallel and GPU computing in MATLAB, and (Part II) scale their computations to take advantage of PACE resources.

·      Basic working knowledge of MATLAB
·      Access to the Georgia Tech VPN. You do NOT need to be a PACE user, and all participants will receive access to PACE-ICE for hands-on activities.

Please contact PACE at with any questions.
