This demonstration will provide users with a step-by-step tutorial for accessing data via the EGI Data Services and analyzing it with MATLAB on the EGI’s Notebooks Service.

Users can connect with their own MATLAB licenses to analyze available datasets on the EGI’s DataHub in the cloud on EGI resources. MATLAB live scripts allow users to build computational notebooks combining text, images, code and results which can be shared with their communities via the EGI cloud storage. To share research output between diverse user groups, users can call other languages (eg. Python) from MATLAB and save data in widely accessible, open formats.

In this demonstration, attendees will learn how to
• Access the EGI’s Notebook Service
• Use their MATLAB licenses to run MATLAB on the EGI
• Connect to the EGI DataHub to access publicly available datasets
• Create a computational notebook containing images, text, code, and output, all in one document
• Apply interactive controls for users to tune notebook parameters during runtime
• Share their MATLAB code and data with other users using EGI cloud storage
