Registration is open for Optimized Modern Fortran, a July 22 workshop led by Alessandro Fanfarillo, NCAR Research Applications Laboratory, to help participants make their Fortran codes run more efficiently through vectorization and other techniques.

When: 9 a.m. to noon, 1 to 3 p.m. Monday, July 22

Where: Room 3131, Center Green campus (CG1), Boulder

Participants will get a detailed, practical explanation of how to obtain high performance from modern Fortran codes, with a particular focus on how to exploit the hardware instructions provided by modern processors. Prerequisite: Basic knowledge of Fortran 90 constructs, such as array syntax and allocation, recursion, modules, and intrinsic, elemental and pure functions.

Participants are encouraged to bring their own codes and laptop computers. Lunch will be provided. Some travel funding is available. See the Optimized Modern Fortran Workshop web page for details and registration.

Registration is open for the 2019 International Computing in Atmospheric Sciences (iCAS) Symposium, September 8-12 in Stresa, Italy. NCAR, which hosts the iCAS series, announced that keynote presentations will focus on the European Open Science Cloud and the Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope.

On Monday, September 9, Tiziana Ferrari from EGI and Hannes Thiemann from DKRZ will discuss "The European Open Science Cloud and its Use Cases for Climate, Weather, Earth, and Environmental System Research."

On Wednesday, September 11, Alisdair Davey from the U.S. National Solar Observatory, will present on "The Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope (DKIST): A Next-Generation Ground-Based Solar Telescope."

For information about the keynote talks and the speakers, and to register for the symposium, see the iCAS 2019 site. Room reservations should be made directly with the hotel before August 7. After that date, rooms will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. See the iCAS site for a link to the hotel reservation form.
