WG5 Email List

SC22/WG5 operates an informal electronic mailing list for distribution of information and for discussion of developments.  All valid messages sent since the mailing list started on 1991-10-06 have been archived.  Click here to access the index for the sc22wg5 email archive.  See below for other email indexes. For access to the Working Group's document archives see the SC22/WG5 home page.

Organization of the list The address of the list is: sc22wg5 at It contains addresses both of individual members and links to national sub-lists in Japan, UK and USA.  Permission to send messages to the sc22wg5 list is restricted to those named in a 'whitelist'; this contains the addresses of all the individuals in the sc22wg5 list, the addresses of members of the national sub-lists and alternative addresses (e.g. home or office) for those already included for receipt of mail.  It also includes the addresses of some staff in the secretariats of ISO member bodies and some former members of standards committees, now classed as observers.

Membership of the list Membership is continually updated.  To request changes, address a plain English message (the system is not automatic), to the list administrator at: sc22wg5-owner at

Japan, UK and USA sublists Those in Japan, the UK or the USA who wish to receive mail should contact the national list administrator, i.e. the appropriate one of:

jwg5-request at ukfortran-owner at j3-request at

Note that given the way the sc22wg5 list is structured, it is not necessary to address a message to both the sc22wg5 list and, say, the J3 list.

The UK and USA mailing lists also maintain indexes for their own messages which include sc22wg5 messages.  These indexes are continually updated but cover a shorter period than the sc22wg5 index.  These links give access: UK (available only to members of the UK list), USA.

Joining the list Generally speaking, list administrators are happy to accommodate on these lists anyone interested in the development of Fortran standards, whether or not they are active participants in Fortran meetings.  However matters to do with programming techniques, programming queries and the like should be addressed to one of the open Fortran forums, for example Fortran DIscourse. If you have questions about or issues with a specific compiler, please consult that compiler's support resources.
