Description

Wednesday 24th May 2017: Dr Wadud Miah

Are you a UCL student or staff member who builds or maintains software for research?

Would you like to? Is writing code part of your scientific or scholarly life?

Please join us for the UCL Research Programming Technical Socials.

In these informal events, you can learn about useful tools and techniques which will help with your research while meeting other students and staff who use computers for science.

These are held monthly, 16.30-18.00, with a format as follows:

  • 1630-1710: Short talk on a tool, program, environment, language or technique of general interest to programming researchers.
  • 1710-1800: Discussion of a matter of interest to programming researchers, inspired by the talk, over pizza and drinks.

Wednesday 24th May 2017: Dr Wadud Miah: Modern Fortran for Computational Science

Abstract: Fortran is the dominant programming language of computational science. Codes written in Fortran account for over 80% of CPU cycles on the Archer UK supercomputer service and around 70% of CPU cycles on
the top 500 supercomputers in the world. Surveys have shown that a large percentage of the computational community are still using the Fortran 77 standard and uptake on the more modern standards (e.g. 95, 2003 and 2008) are still lagging behind. Anecdotal evidence has shown that scientists are using non-standard compiler specific features which reduces the portability of their codes. This presentation will give an update on the latest Fortran standards to increase the portability and performance of computational codes.
