Fortran for Scientific Computing

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.)

PRACE PATC and bwHPC-C5

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.
HLRS is also member of the Baden-Württemberg initiative bwHPC-C5.
This course is provided within the framework of the bwHPC-C5 user Support. This course is not part of the PATC curriculum and is not sponsored by the PATC program.

Social Events

At the first or second evening we schedule a short guided walk through the city followed by a dinner at Stuttgart's first restaurant-brewery, the "Calwer Eck" (Swabian restaurant). On Wednesday, we plan to organize a visit in our 3-D visualization CAVE. At (Tuesday or) Thursday, a visit of the exhibition of contemporary art in the "New States Gallery" is recommended (opened until 8pm). Also fun is a visit of Stuttgart's TV-tower in the evening. It is the first tower build of concrete in the world, and also the first TV tower in the world. (Currently closed for building repairs.) If you arrive already on Sunday morning, you may visit the world class Mercedes Museum. All social events are on a self paying basis, i.e., not part of any course fees. We would be happy if you can join these events.

Cancelation Policy

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).

Handouts

Each participant will get a paper copy of all slides.
The MPI-1 part of the course is based on the MPI course developed by the EPCC Training and Education Centre, Edinburgh Parallel Computing Centre.
If you want, you may also buy copies of the standards MPI-3.0 (Hardcover, 17 Euro) and OpenMP (about 12 Euro).
An older version of this course with most of the material (including the audio information) can also be viewed in the ONLINE Parallel Programming Workshop.
