About Event

A huge amount of research software is, or relies on, Fortran code. However, maintaining Fortran code is fraught with difficulties for a variety of interconnected reasons including lack of suitable tools, the prevalence of 'hero developers' in scientific software, and a dearth of training. In this workshop on sustaining Fortran research software, developers, software engineers, scientists and other stakeholders will work together to 1) better understand the landscape of problems 2) share good practice and 3) plan activities to support the community.

We do have some funding to support attendance. If you want to avail of that, please contact the organisers directly (andrew.brown@qub.ac.uk, a.rainer@qub.ac.uk).

We are delighted to be hosting this workshop as a satellite of RSECon24.
