PRACE Course: Advanced Fortran Topics @ LRZ

We are pleased to announce that the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre will offer a 5-day course on "Advanced Fortran Topics" on Monday, September 9 - Friday, September 13, 2019, 9:00-18:00 at LRZ in Garching near Munich, Germany.

This course, partly a PRACE training event, is targeted at scientists who wish to extend their knowledge of Fortran to cover advanced features of the language.

Topics covered include:

  • Best Practices
  • Object-oriented programming
  • IEEE features and floating point exceptions
  • Interoperability with C
  • Fortran 2003 I/O extensions
  • OO Design Patterns: application of object-oriented programming
  • Coarrays

The lectures are given by Dr. Reinhold Bader, who participates in the standardisation activities of the Fortran programming language in the international workgroup WG5, and Dr. Gilbert Brietzke.

To consolidate the lecture material, each day's approximately 4 hours of lecture are complemented by 3 hours of hands-on sessions. The last 2 days of the course are a PRACE training event.

Please also pass this course announcement to other interested colleagues.
