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.
Fortran syntax overview
- Basics - Program units - Dynamic data - IO
Obsolete features of Fortran
Multiple source files
Optimisation of single processor performance
Features of Fortran 2003 and 2008
Compilers for Fortran and their usage
The course is full. Therefore, the registration is closed.

Members of other universities and public research institutes: 120 EUR.
Others: 400 EUR.
(includes food and drinks at coffee breaks, will be collected on the first day of the course, cash only)
Familiarity with Linux and Linux editors is recommended.
Basics/principles of programming (in any language).
Basic mathematics (integration and differentiation).
Participants will receive a free copy of the slides.
Recommended book: Michael Metcalf, John Reid, Malcom Cohen,"Modern Fortran explained".
HLRS is part of the Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS), which is one of the six PRACE Advanced Training Centres (PATCs) that started in Feb. 2012. The mandate for the PATCs is as follows: "The PRACE Advanced Training Centres will serve as European hubs of advanced, world-class training for researchers working in the computational sciences." (see D3.2.3)
This course is a PATC course, see also the PRACE Training Portal and Events. For participants from public research institutions in PRACE countries, the course fee is sponsored through the PRACE PATC program.
If you cannot come to the course, please send an email to the organizer as soon as possible. This would allow us to accept additional participants from the waiting-list. There is no cancelation fee.
NO-SHOW: Registered persons that do not cancel and do not show up without any reasons are blocked for the next year on any of our workshops (because it is too expensive to produce unused copies of the slides for them).
Each participant will get a paper copy of all slides.
