April 2: This course will be provided as ONLINE course (using Zoom).
(March 13: Due to corona virus we are not able to guarantee that the course will go ahead as scheduled. We recommend to book cancellable train tickets and accomodations only!)
This course is dedicated to 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
A detailed program can be found here (PDF) (preliminary)
Familiarity with Linux and Linux editors is recommended. Basics/principles of programming (in any language). Basic mathematics (integration and differentiation).
The course language is English.
All course material and the details to access the online course will be provided to the registered and accepted attendees only.
For course participants only: Link to the slides and exercises (password protected).
The course is full. Therefore, registration is closed.
for registration is April 5, 2020 (extended deadline).
Late registrations after the deadline are still possible but maybe with reduced quality of the handouts.
Students and academic participants within EU or PRACE-member-countries:
Performance aspects and advanced topics of scientific programming with Fortran are discussed throughout all chapters, i.e., on all days of this course. Therefore, it is strongly recommended to visit all days, although only 3 days are sponsored by the PRACE PATC project (due to limited resources within this project).
All other participants (i.e., not from academia, or from outside EU and PRACE):
Our course fees includes coffee breaks (in class room courses only).
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)
A part of 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 for this part of the course through the PRACE PATC program. For details, see the section about the course fee above.
