Programming Language Courses

The Fortran course gives an introduction into sequential programming.
Hands-on sessions will allow users to immediately test and understand what the basic constructs of these programming languages are meant to do.


The courses in fall 2008 are given with different focus and locations:

Course FORTRAN: Oct. 27-31, Stuttgart, HLRS Fortran for Scientific Computing
(in German)
Online course: additional courses on parallel programming are available as an online-course with all slides and full audio information.
Lectures on parallel programming, see Parallel Programming Workshops 2008


The course language is German.
Slides and course materials are partially in English.

Course FORTRAN Location Großer Seminarraum, HLRS (Höchstleistungsrechenzentrum Stuttgart), Universität Stuttgart, Allmandring 30, D-70569 Stuttgart
Date 2008, Monday Oct. 27, 9:00 - Friday Oct. 31, 16:00
Course: Mon.-Thu. 9:00 - 17:00, Fri. 9:00 - 16:00
Local registration: On Monday 8:30 - 9:00
Content 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. The beginners part is based on the RRZN handbook "Fortran 95". 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.
Agenda On Monday, the course starts with an introduction into programming with Fortran with small programming exercises that should help starting with programming. For more experienced participants, advanced exercises will be provided. Tuesday to Thursday, all major Fortran 95 methods are presented and tested in exercises. Performance issues are discussed. On Friday, Fortran development tools, an outlook to Fortran 2003 and further exercises are rounding up this course. The final agenda will be provided in the course.

Registration via online registration form
Deadline is 4 weeks before the beginning of each course, late registration after the deadline is possible, but not recommended, because printing of the handouts starts at this deadline.
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.
Limit C++ course: maximum of 32 participants
C and Fortran course: maximum of 42 participants
(according to the seats in the rooms).
