Dear Colleagues and Friends,
The HDF User Group will hold their annual European meeting on 19-21 September at DESY, Hamburg, Germany. The special topic of this meeting will be HDF5 plugins and data compression, and the meeting is hosted in collaboration with the LEAPS-INNOV EU project. The HDF Group will give an update on the latest developments within HDF5 and present the roadmap for the future.
The meeting website is available for more information and abstract submission. The venue, DESY, is one of the world’s leading accelerator centres, with research including accelerator R&D, particle physics and photon science. The call for abstracts will be open from now until August 20th. Registration for the meeting is free.
As well as taking abstracts for presentations on your work, we are keen to get feedback and discussion on next steps with HDF plugins and data compression. So, if there are topics or problems you wish to discuss, you are also welcome to let us know via the abstract system, and we could then arrange a discussion slot.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- HDF5 plugins
- Compression methods
- Archiving & long-term access of compressed data
- HDF5 library language bindings and modules
- Side-cars and annotations
- Reference platforms
The organizing committee can also be contacted via email@example.com.
