Doodle: Fortran Monthly Call: September 2022

The final time slot will be selected and announced on the evening (European time) of Monday September 12, please complete the poll before then .

If there are specific topics or issues you would like to raise, even if you are unable to attend the call, please post them in the thread here.

As usual, we will record this call and make it available online.

All the best,



We should discuss whether we want to organize Fortran-lang under NumFOCUS, BCS (suggested by @johnp), or another umbrella organization. This topic has been discussed a bit in Options for funding Fortran-Lang projects.

Here are a few thoughts to discuss in the monthly call:

For NumFOCUS applications the deadline is the 15th January next year, which gives as some time to apply in case we make this decision. Creating an organization hosted by the BCS could also be a possibility, with the next BCS meeting on the 29th September (BCS Fortran Specialist Group & speakers wanted / Presenting FPM at the BCS Fortran SG meeting) we would have an opportunity to inquire about this and see whether this is feasible for us.


Our next monthly call will be on Tuesday, September 20 at 17:00 UTC .

10:00 - 11:00 PDT (California)
18:00 - 19:00 BST (London)
19:00 - 20:00 CEST (Amsterdam)

As previously, the meeting will be recorded for those who cannot attend.
Don’t hesitate to propose your items below.


We should invite our GSoC contributors to join us and provide a brief summary of their projects.


Good idea @everythingfunctional .

@ashirrwad @arteevraina @henilp105 @Ubaid-Shaikh As proposed by @everythingfunctional it would be nice if you could provide a brief summary of your GSoC project during the next Fortran Call meeting. I know that this is on a short notice. So, don’t feel obligated. A short summary could be also presented during the call in October.
