You’re invited: Parallel programming with MATLAB webinar on Dec. 4 

By | Events, HPC, News

We invite you to join us for an engaging virtual session on Parallel Computing with MATLAB, scheduled for December 4 from 1-4 p.m. EST. This session promises to equip you with valuable insights and knowledge. Here’s a glimpse of what you can expect to learn during the session.

Parallel Computing Hands-On Workshop:

Join us for an immersive hands-on workshop where we will introduce you to the world of parallel computing using MATLAB®. This workshop aims to equip you with the skills to tackle computationally and data-intensive problems by harnessing the power of multicore processors, GPUs, and computer clusters. Through practical exercises and real-world examples, you will gain a comprehensive understanding of parallel computing and learn best practices for its implementation.


  • Explore a range of exercises and examples, varying in difficulty from fundamental parallel usage concepts to more advanced techniques.
  • Learn how to optimize MATLAB applications by leveraging parallel computing capabilities.
  • Discover the benefits of running multiple Simulink simulations in parallel and enhance your simulation efficiency.
  • Dive into the world of GPU computing and unlock the potential for accelerated computations.
  • Explore the concept of offloading computations and delve into the realm of cluster computing.
  • Master the art of working with large data sets and efficiently process them using parallel computing techniques.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to enhance your parallel computing skills with MATLAB. Join us for this exciting workshop and unlock the potential of parallel computing for your computational challenges.

Register soon to guarantee your spot and receive the Webex link before the workshop.

Introduction to MATLAB

By |

This workshop introduces participants to MATLAB. Topics include indexing and slicing of vectors and matrices, creation of script M-files and functions, control flow operators and basic 2D and 3D visualization. The workshop is targeted to participants with little to no knowledge of MATLAB and/or participants that would like to review basic MATLAB concepts.

Regular Expressions II

By |

Regular expressions are perfectly suited for people who like puzzles. Regular expressions are a sequence of characters used to define a search pattern. They are commonly used to do “find” and “find and replace” string operations. They are also used to validate strings like phone numbers, passwords, etc. in data entry. Regular expression capabilities can be found in a variety of programming languages and software like ArcGIS, Java, Javascript, Matlab, Perl, PHP, Python, R, Visual Basic, etc. and some text editors. This workshop is part II of a two-part series and will cover more advanced topics like captured groups, backreferences and assertions. The workshop will consist of hands-on example problems. Basic understanding of regular expressions is required. You should be able to understand expressions like “w{3,}-d{1,2}-d{4}“ and “des*ert?s?”. The tutorials will be conducted using Python. A basic programming background is helpful but not required for this workshop.

ARC-TS contributes to successful fNIRS workshop

By | General Interest, Happenings, HPC, News

The Center for Human Growth and Development (CHGD) held a workshop on functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS), a form of neuroimaging, with a special focus on pediatric applications. The workshop was sponsored by units at U-M, as well as units from Eastern Michigan University and Gallaudet University. It was attended by 50 people from as far away as Texas, and included research talks, instructional sessions, and hands-on experience with fNIRS data processing. The workshop was the first of its kind at U-M.

CHGD, ARC-TS, and LSA IT staff collaborated to provide a remote neuroimaging computing environment, which included a graphical interface, access to Matlab, and a suite of fNIRS software, that was accessed from participants’s laptops during the workshop. The attendees rated the practice exercises done via the computing environment one of the most important components of the workshop.

ARC-TS was pleased to be able to contribute to training in computational tools needed for emerging methods in neuroimaging. For more information about the fNIRS workshop, please see http://chgd.umich.edu/facilities-resources/developmental-neuroscience-laboratories/fnirs/fnirs-workshop/
