The next HPC Café takes place on Tuesday, October 11, at 4 p.m. as a hybrid event (in person + Zoom). We invite you to come to RRZE’s seminar room 2.049 to have coffee and cake, and as always, there will also be plenty of time to get in touch with your favorite HPC group.

The monthly HPC Café is an opportunity to get to know each other and to stay up to speed with current developments at NHR@FAU. After a general Q&A phase, the focus will be put on advanced or application-specific topics. In the HPC Café we also offer short talks about anything HPC related, from running job scripts to performance issues. The Café is also an informal platform to give feedback or talk about general requests.

Time: Tuesday, October 11, at 4 p.m.

Topic:  Modern Fortran – an oxymoron or a sustainable language? (talk starts at 4:30 p.m.)

Abstract: For 65 years, the Fortran programming language has been in use by scientists for writing portable and hardware-efficient code when implementing simulations and the underlying algorithms. The talk provides an overview of new developments in Fortran standardization and tries to answer the question posed in the title. We specifically focus on program design, parallelism, and interoperability.

We are pleased to welcome in person Dr. Reinhold Bader from LRZ as the speaker.
