Fortran for scientific computing, High performance computing center (HRLS)

9 - 13 March 2015, University of Stuttgart

‘Fortran for scientific computing’ training took place in High performance computing center (HRLS, Höchstleistungsrechenzentrum) at the University of Stuttgart. It was one week (9-13March 2015) and taught by Mr. Küster and Mr. Schneider from HLRS.

This training course was the most useful one that I have ever participated in. The course organized my knowledge from basic-level to advance-level from high-performance-computing point of view and gave me beneficial information about the newest Fortran standards, optimization, compilers, dynamic data and coarray Fortran. I learnt how to program efficiently and how to increase the performance of my code.  The seminar was accompanied by hands-on sessions, which were indeed helpful to understand and to test immediately the points targeted in the seminar.

Moreover, the teachers were open to individual questions. I could discuss with them about my programming challenges and they gave me some helpful hints. This workshop also provided an opportunity for exchange with other participants.
