BCS London Office,
First Floor, The Davidson Building, 5 Southampton Street, London WC2E 7HA

Peter will speak about multi-core processors, looking at the broader, and perhaps
longer-term, issues in relation to programming them in any language, not just
|15.00||The new features of Fortran 2008|
|John Reid, ISO WG5
John will summarize the new features of the draft Fortran
2008 standard (ISO/IEC 2008). He will take as his starting point Fortran 2003
|Led by David Muxworthy,
BSI Fortran convenor
Here is David's summary of the afternoon's discussions
The Committee Draft of the proposed revised Fortran standard (Fortran 2008) has been available for public comment since late March. The document is available as a 7.8Mb PDF file and is also available from the J3 website.
Formal balloting is via the member bodies of ISO. FSG members in the UK have already been invited to contribute to the BSI vote by sending comments to the BSI Fortran convenor and this is an opportunity for comments to be made in person.
If you are unable to attend this meeting material for the UK ballot should be sent as soon as possible and should arrive no later than Sunday 13 July 2008. Contributors are welcome to comment more than once; it is preferable for the BSI Fortran panel to receive a number of small messages throughout the comment period than to receive a few large messages at the end of it. Please use plain ascii rather than formatted text. Suggestions for changes must include proposed replacement text.
Members outside the UK should submit comments through their own standards body. A full list of JTC1/SC22 members is available on the ISO website.
