Eighth SVO School

The Spanish Virtual Observatory (SVO) is organising a VO school at the Centro de Astrobiología. 

Important dates

  • Deadline for submission of use cases: November 10, 2014
  • Deadline for registration: November 21, 2014
  • School: November 25-26, 2014 
 
Goal of the School
 
The Virtual Observatory (VO) is opening new ways of optimally exploiting the ever increasing volume of data, both observational and theoretical, available in the astronomical archives. The main objective of this school is to expose participants to the most popular VO tools and services available today so that they can use them efficiently for their own research. During the school, VO experts will guide participants on the usage of such tools through a series of real life science cases. The use cases will focus on:
  • Data discovery.
  • Handling of tables, images, spectra and spectral energy distributions.
  • Access to theoretical data. 
In order to ensure the right level of interaction, participation will be restricted to a limited number of participants (30). 
 
 
Venue
 
The School will take place at Centro de Astrobiología (INTA-CSIC) campus in Villafranca del Castillo, located about  25 km north-west of Madrid. The meeting will take place in the building D, rooms D1/D2. The location of the building and other facilities on the ESAC site can be found in the following map:
