This session will show you how to use Matlab Parallel Server to submit jobs on the HPC clusters. Matlab Parallel Server (MPS) is a set of Matlab functions that make it easy to send Matlab jobs to a cluster directly from the Matlab application on your desktop or laptop. Matlab takes care of passing the data and code you need for your job to the cluster, and delivering the jobs results to Matlab on your desktop.

During this session, you will learn how to configure MPS to use a particular cluster, including customizing where data should be stored.

Then, we will demonstrate how to run serial and parallel Matlab jobs, including distributed parallel jobs that span multiple compute nodes.

Finally, we will show how you can use MPS together with NVIDIA GPUs to solve problems in computation, deep learning, and AI.
