FortranCon 2020


FortranCon 2020 is the first International Conference targeting the development for and with the Fortran programming language and will take place on July 2 – 4 in Zurich, Switzerland.

In recent years Fortran has seen a series of new standards, improving the language in regards to object-oriented, parallel and general-purpose programming. This has spurred the development of several new projects written in and for Fortran, helping the Fortran programmers – in particular, the scientific community – to modernize their code and make it more maintainable.

With this conference, we intend to bring together active Fortran project developers from all fields: library and tool developers as well as people using Fortran to develop scientific applications, to share their experience and exchange ideas.

Comments on the Covid-19 situation:

Even before the current pandemic we’ve planned to enable virtual participation (for both speakers and participants). In case the current situation persists, the conference will be held completely virtually.
