PRACE PATC 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)
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 through the PRACE PATC program.
Literature and textbooks Participants will receive a free copy of the slides.
Recommended book: Michael Metcalf, John Reid, Malcom Cohen,"Fortran 95/2003 explained".
Well readable introduction in German: Günter Schmitt, "Fortran 90 Kurs".
The RRZN Handbook "Fortran 95" is sold at the course (or by RUS): 10 Euro.
Social Events At the first or second evening we schedule a short guided walk through the city followed by a dinner 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.
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.
