Spanish Virtual Observatory


XVIII SVO School (Second Remote)

Universidad Autónoma de Madrid,
2020 December 3,4


The Spanish Virtual Observatory (SVO) is organising a remote VO school at Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. The school is partly supported by the ESCAPE and the AYA2017-84089 projects.
Goal of the School
The Virtual Observatory (VO) is opening 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 twofold:
  • Expose participants to the variety of  VO tools and services available today so that they can use them efficiently for their own research.
  • Gather requirements and feedback from participants.
To achieve these goals, VO experts will lecture and tutor the participants on the usage of VO tools and services. Real life examples of scientific applications will be given. 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.
