Abstract

This course is dedicated for scientists and students to learn (sequential) programming with Fortran of scientific applications. The course teaches newest Fortran standards. Hands-on sessions will allow users to immediately test and understand the language constructs. This workshop provides scientific training in Computational Science, and in addition, the scientific exchange of the participants among themselves. (This course has the same content as the course in spring.)
