ABSTRACT: HDF5 is an open-source technology suite for managing diverse, complex, high-volume data in heterogeneous computing and storage environments. HDF5 includes: (1) a versatile self-describing data model that can represent very complex data objects and relationships, and a wide variety of metadata; (2) a completely portable binary file format with no limit on the number or size of data objects; (3) a software library with time and space optimization features for reading and writing HDF5 data; and (4) tools for managing, manipulating, viewing, and analyzing data in HDF5 files. This session will provide a forum for HDF5 developers and users to interact. HDF5 developers will describe the current status of HDF5 and discuss future plans. Ample time will be allowed for questions and discussion, and direct users of HDF5 technologies, as well of users of software built on top of HDF5, will be encouraged to share their successes, challenges, and requests.
