2nd ASTERICS Virtual Observatory School

From November 15, 2016 until November 17, 2016

The ASTERICS project is organising its second VO School.

The school will take place during 15-17 November 2016 at Observatoire Astronomique 

de Strasbourg, Strasbourg, France.

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 twofold: Expose European astronomers and representatives

of the ESFRI project involved in ASTERICS to the variety of VO tools and

services available today so that they can use them efficiently for their

own research and gather requirement and feedback from them.


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.


In order to ensure the right level of interaction, participation will be

restricted to a limited number of participants (40). Preference will be

given to PhD students and post-docs.
