Reports from the Projects




Australia-VO (ASVO)





CADC has placed a deposit on the venue ADASS-2022 in Victoria. We are working with University of Toronto and University of Victoria to host this meeting. Due to long-lead times for conference venues the ADASS-2022 LoC is requesting details on possible IVOA Interop attached to ADASS-2022 (incuding possible executive session).

CVO will be pursuing 'CoreTrustSeal' certification within a cohort of Canadian data repositories that are moving through this process together. Expect CTS process to finish by end of summer 2021.


The Euro-VO activities are in part supported by the ESCAPE project ( Work Package 4 of ESCAPE "Connecting ESFRI to EOSC using the Virtual Observatory" recently held a number of events:

OV-France held its annual meeting 22-23 March 2021 with strong participation of the French astronomy community:








Within the revision of all INAF projects promoted by the new President, has been proposed as a "programme" (long-term project), coordinated and funded by INAF with the formal participation of ASI (SSDC - Space Science Data Center). Participants are 23 staff from 7 INAF institutes, ASI-SSDC and the University of Padova. Evaluation is expected by the end of August.

In preparation for the proposal two virtual meetings were organised: an information webinar (8 March) to update the community on the IVOA activities and accomplishments and on the role (44 participants), and a workshop (28 April) for a technical discussion and preparation for the future events: the IVOA Interop and the ESCAPE/CEVO Hands-on Meeting for Data Providers (25 participants).
