MATLAB Seminars October 1


The two seminars given by Adam Filion, MathWorks Application Engineer, are free and open to all students, faculty and staff.

Registration begins at 9 a.m., but walk-ins are welcome. To register, go to the following website:

The first session, Data Analysis and Visualization in MATLAB, begins at 9:15 and will end at 11:45. This session will demonstrate how to acquire, analyze and visualize data through mathematical, statistical and engineering functions that support common engineering operations. It will also provide an overview of the MATLAB technical computing environment. A Q&A will end the session. This session assumes attendees have little or no prior experience with MATLAB, however, even experienced users will see some useful features demonstrated in the new 2013b release.

The second session, Optimizing and Accelerating MATLAB Code, will take place from 1:30 p.m. until 3:34 p.m. Registration begins 15 minutes prior to the event.

During this session learn simple ways to optimize your MATLAB code to reduce the execution time of computationally intensive MATLAB applications. Common pitfalls in writing MATLAB code will be addressed. High-level programming constructs from the Parallel Computing Toolbox will be introduced. This session will end with a Q&A portion. This session assumes attendees have some prior experience with MATLAB, or are motivated to learn about using MATLAB to generate C code and/or using it for parallel computing.
