With the launch of the first astronomical citizen science project, Public Supernova search Project (PSP), on July 29, the number of registered users is increasing fast. By September 6, it is 1328.

Five proposals submitted by China-VO members to Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) in early of the year were approved. Research topics of the proposals include distributed data archiving, automatic cross identification algorithm, dedicated high reliable storage system, high efficient search methods and system, and catalog building.

On 3rd September 2015 three South African Universities launched the Inter-University Institute for Data Intensive Astronomy (IDIA http://www.uct.ac.za/dailynews/?id=9342) with support from the South Africa Department of Science and Technology. IDIA will develop capacity for big data management and analysis over a variety of disciplines. It is a spin-off of the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) project and its founding director is Prof Russ Taylor. We are considering how IDIA and SA3 should interface to maximize their reach and impact.
