Room TBD
Collaborative Grid computing on e-Infrastructures leverages large-scale resources to solve complex scientific and engineering problems. This tutorial will discuss how scientist and engineers can take advantage of available Grid resources while doing minimal to no code changed to their applications written in a high-level programming language. Attendees will learn to express task- and data-parallelism in the MATLAB(TM) language, by using high-level constructs like parallel-for loops and distributed arrays as well as low-level message-passing APIs. Attendees will then learn how to use the EGEE Grid (Enabling Grids for E-sciencE project funded by the European Commission) to enable the solution of their computationally-intensive and data-intensive large-scale technical problems. Hands-on exercises will allow attendees to interactively develop parallel programs on multicore laptop machines and then scale these programs to the EGEE Grid through the gLite middleware. NOTE: This will be a hands-on tutorial.
