  "title": "C++ & Python API for Scientific I/O with openPMD", 
  "abstract": "openPMD is an open metadata format for open data workflows in open science. This library provides a common high-level API for openPMD writing and reading. It provides a common interface to I/O libraries and file formats such as HDF5 and ADIOS. Where supported, openPMD-api implements both serial and MPI parallel I/O capabilities.",
