IVOA Interoperability Meeting

14-19 May 2006: Victoria, Canada

Theory Sessions

The goal of the theory sessions is to get work done. Therefore the emphasis will be on discussing the developments so far: the use cases and proposals derived form this. The first two sessions will set the stage for the rest of the week where hopefully we will be able to organise smaller meetings in which the various issues will be discussed in more detail. The results of these will be summarized and discussed in the third session and presented to the plenary meeting on Friday.
