Reports from the Projects









France VO








+ First Latin American VO school. (14-16 March, 2023) ( https://svo.cab.inta-csic.es/svoMeetings/index.php?mid=58&action=page&pagename=I_Escuela_Latinoamericana_VO/Presentation)

- With >160 registered participants (and an average attendance of 80-90) it was the largest VO school ever organized.

- Participants from 17 countries, most of them early-career people.

- High percentage (60%) of VO newcomers.

- Very positive feedback. Many people interested in a second edition covering new topics.

- The school was conducted in Spanish so part of the material is in Spanish.

- The school was recorded and the recorded sessions are available from the school web page so the reached audience can even be larger.

+ EAS2023 SS4 "Science with the Virtual Observatory" ( https://eas.unige.ch/EAS2023/session.jsp?id=SS4)

- The deadline for abstract submission was March 8th.

- We received 16 requests for talks and 7 for posters.

- In the coming days the reviewing process will begin.
