New Technologies Session at the May 2014 Interop Meeting

This session will be about techniques or technologies which should be in the IVOA's future, or which may provide alternative solutions to IVOA problems, but which aren't yet at a standardisable stage.

This might include:

  • web developments (HTTP successors?, HTML5?, compiling to Javascript?)
  • language developments (languages for natural parallelism? what's next after Python becomes unfashionable?)
  • database developments (nosql? biiiig data? performance?)
  • UI developments (game controllers? hands-free controllers? graphics cards?)
  • ...anything else it would be fun to talk about
This follows on from the successful and entertaining Heidelberg ''New Technologies'' session.

We can run this as a conventional session, with a sequence of timed talks, or if there's more interest we can run it as a sequence of lightning talks, or an unconference (I'm happy to take suggestions on format, too).

This session is on Wednesday, and therefore before the conference dinner; provocative proposals would suit very naturally!

Please send your talk proposals direct to me.


There is only one session: Wednesday 21 May, 17:00–18:30, in room D001
