First Experiences with Parallel Application Development in Fortran 2018

Damian Rouson from the Sourcery Institute gave this talk at the Stanford HPC Conference. “This talk will present performance and scalability results of the mini-app running on several platforms using up to 98,000 cores. A second application involves the use of teams of images (processes) that execute indecently for ensembles of computational hydrology simulations using WRF-Hyrdro, the hydrological component of the Weather Research Forecasting model also developed at NCAR. Early experiences with portability and programmability of Fortran 2018 will also be discussed.”

Tutorial: Towards Exascale Computing with Fortran 2015

“This tutorial will present several features that the draft Fortran 2015 standard introduces to meet challenges that are expected to dominate massively parallel programming in the coming exascale era. The expected exascale challenges include higher hardware- and software-failure rates, increasing hardware heterogeneity, a proliferation of execution units, and deeper memory hierarchies.”
