HDF5 User Group (HUG) 2021 - Call for Papers and Presentations

HDF5 has been a widely used tool to simplify management and access to scientific
and engineering data with ubiquitous data solutions. With rapidly growing data
across all domains of science and industry, HDF5 developers have been building
technologies that provide rapid, easy, and permanent access to complex data.
HDF5 has been extremely successful with a wide range of users and an ecosystem
built around the HDF5 library. The HDF Group and Lawrence Berkeley National
Laboratory (LBNL) are hosting a virtual HDF5 User Group 2021 (HUG 2021) meeting
to facilitate a broader discussion among HDF5 users around the world.

We invite you to present at the HUG 2021 meeting on October 12-15, 2021. We are
soliciting submissions in two categories “Paper and Presentation” or
