Purpose & Goals
The Virtual Observatory (VO) is opening up new ways of exploiting the huge amount of data provided by the ever-growing number of ground-based and space facilities, as well as by computer simulations. The goal of the school is to expose European astronomers to the variety of VO tools and services available today so that they can use them efficiently for their own research.
To achieve these goals, VO experts will lecture and tutor the participants on the usage of such tools. Real life examples of scientific applications will be given, some of them selected from the science cases that participants will be asked to submit at the time of registration. A large fraction of the time will be dedicated to hands-on exercises, which will allow participants to become fully familiar with the VO capabilities on their own laptops.
Tools providing the following functionalities will be presented:
Some travel support is available for this workshop. Please contact your national CoSADIE board member representative directly at the time of registration. If your institution is based on a EU country not represented on the CoSADIE board, then contact Enrique Solano (esm at cab.inta-csic.es) for travel support.
