Fortran Specialist Group
Between Monday 6 August and Friday 10 August 2007 the BCS London offices played host to a meeting of the ISO/IEC JTC1/SC22/WG5 Fortran committee on behalf of the British Standards Institution. A total of 18 delegates attended, representing the Netherlands, Canada, Japan, USA and UK. The minutes of the meeting are available online.
On the Monday evening the Fortran SG hosted a reception for the delegates in The
Weston Room at King's College
& Information Services Centre, Chancery Lane, London WC2, which was attended
by 26 delegates, partners and FSG committee members. In addition to a buffet and drinks
delegates had the opportunity to take guided tours round the historic building, which
was formerly the Victorian Public Records Office.
The smooth running of both the meeting and the reception were due to the combined
efforts of the BCS staff, particularly in the London office, and members of the FSG
committee, particularly Jane Sleightholme and Ian Chivers. Messages of thanks were
received after the event from the heads of the US, Dutch and UK delegations and the
chairman of WG5 itself.
