Talk abstract:

MATLAB is used extensively in many industrial contexts, from designing and simulating planes and cars to modelling risk in the finance sector. The commonality in all its uses is the need to undertake significant

mathematical computation. And the need for this is only growing. As it grows, so does the need for more computational power and hence the demand for cluster and GPU computing. This talk aims to introduce the

parallel language in MATLAB and put its use in context with some  industrial applications.





Jos Martin  is currently a Senior Engineering Manager at MathWorks with responsibility for the development of all HPC and parallel computing product, MATLAB Drive and MATLAB Connector. He has lead the parallel

computing team since its inception in 2003 and in that time has architected much of the toolbox, particularly the core infrastructure and parallel language areas. At SC08, on behalf of MathWork, he was a

joint winner of the HPC Challenge Class 2 award for Most Productive Implementation. He received a D.Phil in Atomic and Laser Physics and an MA in Physics from Oxford University, UK. After completing his

D.Phil he held a Royal Society Post-Doctoral Fellowship at the  University of Otago, New Zealand. His area of research was  Experimental Bose-Einstein Condensation (BEC), a branch of low-temperature

atomic physics.
