Тема: Announcing the ASTERICS 2016-06-15/16 European Data Provider Forum and Training Event
Dear Irina Vavilova,
On June 15 and 16, 2016, the ASTERICS project is organising the
European Data Provider Forum and Training Event at the Zentrum für
Astronomie at Heidelberg University, Germany.
This workshop will gather researchers and technicians on the topic of
on-line publishing of astronomical data and services. It will offer
an opportunity to identify common challenges and problems, to exchange
solutions, and to share perspectives. We invite contributions from the
full range of astronomy data publishers including big institutions with
large managed archives, medium and small institutions, and also data
Part of the workshop will be dedicated to ESFRI (European Strategy
Forum for Research Infrastructures) projects participating in the
ASTERICS project, namely CTA, LOFAR/SKA, KM3Net, EGO/VIRGO/ET,
together with associate partners ESA and ESO. ASTERICS (Astronomy
ESFRI & Research Infrastructure Cluster, www.asterics2020.eu)
is an EU Horizon 2020 project that targets the common challenges
shared by several astronomy ESFRI facilities. This workshop is part of
ASTERICS work package 4 DADI (Data Access, Discovery and Interoperability),
aiming to support broad accessibility and effective archiving in data
centres based on the Virtual Observatory framework.
The fields in which we would like to see a lively exchange include:
* current challenges in data publication
* publication tools, libraries, and techniques
* developments to facilitate data exploitation by astronomers
* use and adoption of Virtual Observatory standards.
While we are open regarding the format and extent of your contribution,
we suggest aiming for oral contributions of 15 minutes each where
Back to back to the event, we will hold a workshop on data publication
using VO tools on June 17. Participants considering the use of VO
publishing toolkits (experts in several of these are going to be present)
are requested to note their interest with a brief description of the data
they want to publish with the registration or by e-mail.
Neither the European Data Provider Forum nor the accompanying workshop
on data publication impose a registration fee. Limited travel support
is available, in particular for smaller data publishers. See the web
page for details.
