As usual, France-VO (the Action Spécifique Observatoires Virtuels or ASOV) opened a call for proposals to support travels to the IVOA Interoperability meetings, collaboration meetings between French teams and meetings on specific topics. The 2017 ASOV meeting will be held 15-16 March in Paris, with participants from Nice, Marseille, Montpellier, Toulouse, Grenoble, Besançon and Strasbourg, plus from Paris and Paris region labs. The meeting agenda (in French) is here: http://www.france-ov.org/twiki/bin/view/ASOVFrance/ReunionASOV2017. The meeting will be followed on 16 March by a "Semi-Hack-a-Thon" meeting allowing technical discussions among data providers, including but not only on the implementation of the VO framework. A "beginner training" on the implementation of the VO will be held on 17 March.

Highlights from the meeting were

  • New and updated services / applications
    • New serviceNOAO DataLab (beta 1)
    • SciServer updates: Altair, SkyQuery, Compute, SciDrive hookup to CasJobs
    • Iris 3.0: updated plotting and fitting interface (promoted from beta to release on 06Mar17)
    • SIA v2 service implemented in NED
    • MAST: ObsTAP available for all MAST observations. Hubble Source Catalog complete.
    • IRSA: Cone, TAP, and SIA services implemented.
  • Standards statuses:
    • VO-DML (VO Data Modeling Language) collaboration between CXC, JHU, STScI, and Univ. Strasbourg. Prototyping reference implementations to several formats and reworking syntax based on results.
    • HiPS (Hierarchical Progresssive Survey) work is planned at CXC and MAST.
    • CAOM (Common Archive Observation Model). While not a VO standard, US VOA participants are working to build interoperability with CAOM data.
