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.
