MathWorks is happy to announce an exclusive Master Class featuring Loren Shure (MathWorks USA) at University of Zurich on Thursday, March 23. Join us for this unique and free opportunity to learn more about MATLAB.

About the Presenter:
Loren has worked at MathWorks for over 30 years. For the first 27 of these years, Loren co-authored several MathWorks products in addition to adding core functionality to MATLAB, including major contributions to the design of the MATLAB language.

She graduated from MIT with a B.Sc. in physics and has a Ph.D. in marine geophysics from the University of California, San Diego, Scripps Institution of Oceanography. She is a Senior Member of IEEE. Loren writes about MATLAB on her blog, The Art of MATLAB.

Advanced Programming Techniques in MATLAB:
In this session you will get an understanding of how different MATLAB data types are stored in memory. You will learn how you can program in MATLAB to use memory efficiently. In recent versions, MATLAB introduced several new programming concepts, including new function types.

We will illustrate and explore the usage and benefits of various function types under different conditions. You will learn how using the right function type can lead to more robust and maintainable code. Demonstrations will show you how to apply these techniques to problems that arise in typical applications.

This session is in English.


  • Memory handling in MATLAB
  • Various function types
  • How to write better code

Who Should Attend

This Master Class is suited for all Professors, scientists and students already familiar with MATLAB and an interest in further improvement of coding style for performance and memory efficiency.
