HDF5 User Group Meeting 2024 (HUG24)

The 2024 HDF5 User Group Meeting will be held August 5-7, 2024 at the McCormick Tribune Campus Center at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago. HDF5 has been the most used data management and I/O library across the world. For over 25 years, people worldwide have relied on our open-source HDF software to solve some of the most challenging data management problems. At the HDF5 User Group (HUG) meetings, we bring together HDF5 users, developers, ecosystem developers, and future workforce together to accommodate discussion of requirements for future as well as using numerous HDF5 features effectively. You can check out the list of Accepted Presentations so far. We welcome more presentations and discussion at the event.
