Dear users of LRZ,

We are very happy to host a Workshop on Fortran Code Modernisation offered by the Numerical Algorithms Group (NAG) at LRZ in June 2018.

This two-day practical hands-on workshop - open and free of charge for all - is aimed at Fortran programmers who want to write modern code, or to modernise existing code, to make it more readable and maintainable by encouraging good engineering practices. The workshop will also present how to integrate tools and techniques for Fortran codes to help you develop sustainable software for your scientific and academic research particularly in a collaborative environment.

Date: Monday, June 4 - Tuesday, June 5 2018, 9:00-17:00

Location: Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ), Boltzmannstr. 1, D-85748 Garching bei Muenchen, Germany

Lecturer: Dr. Wadud Miah, Numerical Algorithms Group (NAG)


·         Modern Fortran standards and how to write optimised and efficient Fortran;

·         NetCDF and HDF5 scientific file formats for data sharing in Fortran;

·         GNU Automake to automate the build process;

·         pFUnit unit testing framework for testing Fortran codes;

·         Fortran Documenter tool for Fortran code documentation;

·         Git version control for collaborative code development;

·         In-situ visualisation using PLplot in Fortran;

·         IEEE Floating Point Exception Handling;

·         Software verification and portability using the NAG Fortran Compiler;

·         Fortran interoperability with C, Python and R;

·         Introduction to parallelism for Fortran;

·         Fortran code verification using the CamFort tool;

·         Introduction to the NAG Fortran library.
