Parallel MATLAB Tutorial Offered by Cornell and Purdue
The Cornell University Center for Advanced Computing (CAC) and Purdue University announced that their tutorial “Running Parallel Simulations and Enabling Science Gateways with the NSF MATLAB Experimental Resource” was selected by the SC10 Technical Program Committee and will be offered from 1:30 pm - 5:00 pm, Monday, November 15, 2010 at the New Orleans Convention Center. The tutorial is co-sponsored by the Network for Computational Nanotechnology (NCN).
Cornell University in partnership with Purdue University received a National Science Foundation award to deploy a new experimental computing resource called “MATLAB on the TeraGrid.” This cluster provides a parallel MATLAB resource which is available from a MATLAB client running on a user’s workstation, allowing their application to grow from a local machine to the remote cluster. The same paradigm allows Science Gateways using the cluster as a backend to integrate MATLAB code into their job submission framework.
This tutorial will include instruction on how to use the MATLAB on the TeraGrid cluster both as an extension of MATLAB on the desktop and as a simulation tool for Science Gateways. Participants will learn how to seamlessly shift work to a remote cluster operating at the Cornell Center for Advanced computing as well as how nanoHUB uses this cluster resource to enable hundred of users to run parallel MATLAB code. Tutorial instructors are Susan Mehringer and Steve Lantz of Cornell University and Steven Clark of Purdue University.

The Cornell University Center for Advanced Computing (CAC) is a leader in high-performance computing system, application, and data solutions that enable research success. CAC is funded by Cornell University, the National Science Foundation, and other leading public agencies, foundations, and corporations. For more information, visit www.cac.cornell.edu.
The NSF-funded Network for Computational Nanotechnology (NCN) is a network of universities with a vision to pioneer the development of nanotechnology from science to manufacturing through innovative theory, exploratory simulation, and novel cyberinfrastructure. NCN students, staff, and faculty are developing the nanoHUB.org science gateway while making use of it in their own research and education. Collaborators and partners across the world have joined NCN in this effort. nanoHUB.org serves over 8,800 users annually with over 348,000 simulation runs.
SC10, sponsored by IEEE Computer Society and ACM (Association for Computing Machinery) offers a complete technical education program and exhibition to showcase the many ways high performance computing, networking, storage and analysis lead to advances in scientific discovery, research, education and commerce. This premier international conference includes a globally attended technical program, workshops, tutorials, a world class exhibit area, demonstrations and opportunities for hands-on learning.

You can think of your watch list as threads that you have bookmarked.
You can add tags, authors, threads, and even search results to your watch list. This way you can easily keep track of topics that you're interested in. To view your watch list, click on the "My Newsreader" link.
To add items to your watch list, click the "add to watch list" link at the bottom of any page.
To add search criteria to your watch list, search for the desired term in the search box. Click on the "Add this search to my watch list" link on the search results page.
You can also add a tag to your watch list by searching for the tag with the directive "tag:tag_name" where tag_name is the name of the tag you would like to watch.
To add an author to your watch list, go to the author's profile page and click on the "Add this author to my watch list" link at the top of the page. You can also add an author to your watch list by going to a thread that the author has posted to and clicking on the "Add this author to my watch list" link. You will be notified whenever the author makes a post.
To add a thread to your watch list, go to the thread page and click the "Add this thread to my watch list" link at the top of the page.
A tag is like a keyword or category label associated with each thread. Tags make it easier for you to find threads of interest.
Anyone can tag a thread. Tags are public and visible to everyone.
The newsgroups are a worldwide forum that is open to everyone. Newsgroups are used to discuss a huge range of topics, make announcements, and trade files.
Discussions are threaded, or grouped in a way that allows you to read a posted message and all of its replies in chronological order. This makes it easy to follow the thread of the conversation, and to see what’s already been said before you post your own reply or make a new posting.
Newsgroup content is distributed by servers hosted by various organizations on the Internet. Messages are exchanged and managed using open-standard protocols. No single entity “owns” the newsgroups.
There are thousands of newsgroups, each addressing a single topic or area of interest. The MATLAB Central Newsreader posts and displays messages in the comp.soft-sys.matlab newsgroup.
You can use the integrated newsreader at the MATLAB Central website to read and post messages in this newsgroup. MATLAB Central is hosted by MathWorks.
Messages posted through the MATLAB Central Newsreader are seen by everyone using the newsgroups, regardless of how they access the newsgroups. There are several advantages to using MATLAB Central.
Your MATLAB Central account is tied to your MathWorks Account for easy access.
Use the Email Address of Your Choice
The MATLAB Central Newsreader allows you to define an alternative email address as your posting address, avoiding clutter in your primary mailbox and reducing spam.
Most newsgroup spam is filtered out by the MATLAB Central Newsreader.
Messages can be tagged with a relevant label by any signed-in user. Tags can be used as keywords to find particular files of interest, or as a way to categorize your bookmarked postings. You may choose to allow others to view your tags, and you can view or search others’ tags as well as those of the community at large. Tagging provides a way to see both the big trends and the smaller, more obscure ideas and applications.
Setting up watch lists allows you to be notified of updates made to postings selected by author, thread, or any search variable. Your watch list notifications can be sent by email (daily digest or immediate), displayed in My Newsreader, or sent via RSS feed.
