Current and Future Directions of HDF: a data model, library, and file format for storing and managing data.
Monday, September 26, 3:30PM – 4:30PM
Quincey Koziol, Director of Core Technology, (Chief Architect for HDF5), The HDF Group Champaign, IL
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.
