NRIS (Norwegian Research Infrastructure Services) is organizing a workshop series on modern FORTRAN. The workshops teach newest Fortran standards. The hands-on workshop will aimed at those who want to write modern code in FORTRAN, or to modernize existing codes, or to combine Fortran code with Python and C by focussing on four different topics on each day.
The workshop is organised as four different events starts on 9th March and ends on 25th May.

The course is open to all users and free of charge, but registration is mandatory.
