by Mr Yann Debray (MathWorks)



Zoom link will be emailed to participants

Update, June 27

All remaining spots have been filled and registration is no longer possible. We will now assign the remaining spots randomly, and all who have not received a definite Accept/Reject notification will get one soon.


HPC.NRW and MathWorks cordially invite you to this hands-on workshop about Interoperability of MATLAB and Python.

Do you need to use MATLAB and Python together? MATLAB® provides flexible, two-way integration with many programming languages, including Python®.

In this hands-on workshop, you’ll learn how to use Python from MATLAB with practical examples. Participants will be able to benefit from the strengths of two of the most powerful tech computing environments. The whole is more than the sum of its parts.

Time and Place

The course will take place on Thursday, June 29, 2022, from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM. It will be held online via Zoom. The login credentials will be e-mailed to participants prior to the event.

Topics / Highlights

  • Call Python libraries
  • Call user-defined Python commands, scripts, and modules
  • Manage and convert data
  • Package MATLAB algorithms to be called from Python


The registration is open to members of universities and other academic institutions in North Rhine-Westphalia. The course is free for both students and employees.

We will admit 30 people. Upon registering you will be put on a waiting list. You will be notified by June 15, 2022 on whether you were accepted.

If there are more than 30 registrations, we will randomly select the participants. Everybody else will be put on a waiting list. If somebody cancels, we will offer the place to the first person on the waiting list.


This course is the second in a series of four courses that are held in summer 2022 and encompass the following topics:

  • Introduction to Parallel Computing with MATLAB (module 1)
  • Interoperability of MATLAB and Python (module 2)
  • Machine Learning with MATLAB (module 3)
  • Deep Learning with MATLAB (module 4)


As we will be using MATLAB Online (MATLAB in a browser), a MATLAB installation on your desktop is not required.

Working knowledge of MATLAB of MATLAB is recommended. Check out the available self-paced online training courses on MATLAB Academy, e.g.
