The Matlab conference this year will be host at Wembley Stadium in London on September 30. If you happen to be in London that day, this is great chance to join hundreds of engineers, financial professionals, and scientists from leading companies and financial institutions to learn about the newest features and latest functionality of the MATLAB® product family. The conference is free, but registration is required.

You can view the agenda and register online at http://www.mathworks.com/company/events/conferences/mc2010-linkedin/index.html, a few possible interesting events are:

Incorporating Symbolic Calculations into MATLAB with Symbolic Math Toolbox
This master class will show how you can take advantage of symbolic calculations within the MATLAB environment for modelling, simulation, and design tasks. Using the latest features in Symbolic Math Toolbox™, including the new MuPAD notebook interface, two case studies will be examined. A wind turbine model will be developed, documented, and integrated with MATLAB as part of a design optimization study. We will also examine the use of MathWorks tools for symbolic and numeric calculations using an example from the BLOODHOUND Project, which involves a World Land Speed Record attempt and aims to inspire young people to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

Parallel Computing with MATLAB
In this master class, you'll see how you can use MATLAB and MathWorks parallel computing tools to solve computationally and data-intensive problems taking advantage of recent advances in computer hardware, from multiprocessor machines to computer clusters. You will learn how to utilise multiple cores in your desktop machine through the new capabilities of MATLAB and Parallel Computing Toolbox. We will also show how to scale applications to computer clusters without changing the code.

Using MATLAB to Scale Index Calculations Through Grids
FTSE Group is a world leader in the creation and management of over 120,000 equity, bond, and alternative asset class indices. Index creation is FTSE's sole business, and the demand for new indices to support more sophisticated investment strategies is growing. FTSE uses MATLAB to enable analysts to work closely with clients while developing algorithms for customised index solutions.

This presentation will describe the results of a proof-of-concept project to demonstrate how MATLAB can be used in a grid to maintain and improve service delivery times while satisfying demand and shortening product development life cycles.
