  During ICALEPCS 2015 it became clear that HDF5 is the de facto standard in the controls and acquisition field for storing large datasets. This workshop builds on the success of the last HDF5 workshop at ICALEPCS 2015. The HDF group will present training tutorials on HDF5 basics including tools, performance tuning and new features. The workshop will discuss recent developments in HDF5 and the experiences and plans of different sites, using the HDF5 library to record and store data and associated metadata. Topics to be addressed include: - HDF5 on multiple-platforms and multiple versions - Use of additional definition standards like NeXus - New tools like HDFql, news on h5py, viewers, 3rd party libraries - Tuning and optimising for High Performance detector systems and HPC - Experiences and plans for use of new features such as Single Writer Multiple Reader (SWMR), Virtual Dataset (VDS) and Direct Chunk Write.
