Evans hall

Are your MATLAB analyses outpacing your laptop? Scale up your computation with Berkeley Research Computing’s Savio high-performance computing cluster, and the MATLAB distributed computing server toolkit! Mathworks and BRC staff will be holding a one-day workshop on parallel computing with MATLAB and scaling to the Savio cluster, on August 15th from 9 AM - 12 PM. (Please note the updated date/time.)

To participate, attendees will need an account on the Savio cluster. Accounts are available at no cost to all faculty, and to staff, postdocs, and students working with a faculty member on a research project. If you don’t already have an account, please review the Faculty Computing Allowance (FCA) materials and submit the FCA application form as soon as possible, or email if you’d like help applying for an FCA. To RSVP for the workshop, please fill out this form.
