This course is organized by the NCC Germany

MATLAB for HPC at Jülich Supercomputing Center (JSC) is a hybrid workshop on parallel computing using large compute resources. The workshop includes hands-on exercises where you learn how to effectively use MATLAB and MATLAB Parallel Server to speed up your computations on the cluster at the Jülich Supercomputing Center.
The course will be delivered in hybrid mode. You can attend the course on-site (09:00-12:30) on November 6th, 2023, at the Jülich Supercomputing Centre or online.

Note: There are two separate registration forms for on-site and online participation.

Benefits for the attendees, what you will learn:

Attendees will learn the following:

  • How to submit MATLAB jobs to the HPC cluster, including hands-on submission of example jobs 
  • Ways to tune job submissions, including accessing GPUs on the HPC cluster
  • How to optimize job submissions
  • Troubleshooting job submission techniques
  • Best practices for rehosting code
  • Opportunity to discuss their MATLAB code in-person with experts from MathWorks

Target Audience

Beginner/Intermediate: Students, postdocs, and other academic users with a beginner/intermediate knowledge of MATLAB and/or using MATLAB for parallel computing on an HPC cluster. Users from commercial backgrounds are welcome to attend, but cannot access the cluster hands-on. 




  • Basic knowledge of MATLAB equivalent to the course “Parallel Computing with MATLAB at Jülich Supercomputing Center”, which is being offered by MathWorks on the 24th of October [click here for registration]. Attending this course is strongly recommended but not required. 
  • Attendees should bring their own laptops with them to the course.
