Virtual Mtg Outline:

  • Exec and TCG meetings on Sunday - start in morning
  • Sessions - start Mon, May 8 - Fri May 12 ;

Meeting Prep:

  • WG/IG solicit presentations from the community - collect abstracts and link from schedule via session wikis

Session Planning:


  • Science Platforms & the VO - 2 sessions (Lead Groups: CSP, Apps, GWS, Operations) - Planning page SciencePlatforms20230405
The Science Platform sessions will explore the state of the art of science platforms in astronomy and how the IVOA can contribute. The invited panelists will be addressing key questions related to the development of their science platforms, including: What aspects of the IVOA worked ? What aspects of the IVOA didn't work ? * What does the IVOA need to do next ?

The session will begin with presentations from each panelist, and a panel discussion will follow.

  • DOIs in Open Science - 1 session (Lead: DCP, RD)
The Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs) session will focus on creating them and using them. DOIs play a pivotal role in both FAIR data and Open Science, providing a key technology that enables resources like data sets and software to be uniquely and permanently identified - and thus citable in the literature. When data are cited by DOI, the metadata associated with the DOI can enable authors, editors, funding agencies, and associated institutions to trace the impact of the research data made available through the Virtual Observatory. This session will explore all aspects of producing and exploiting DOIs and their associated metadata for Open Science and Interoperability through the Virtual Observatory.


  • Session scheduled - also, Lunch time Q&As in the small conf room
For those new to the Virtual Observatory and its capabilities, we present a little science and a little history. First, we will work through a live demo of a science use case with some of the open source tools built on the VO standards and protocols. Then, we will trace the history of the IVOA and "How We Got to Where We Are". We hope this session will help newcomers understand the structure of the IVOA, our history, and how our InterOp meetings are organized, so that they can get as much out of this meeting as the oldtimers.

New Requests WG/IGs

(((WG/IG make a request for sessions ... Include your group name, session name, your name, suggested scehdule contraints, date requested)))

Requests put on Interop schedule from WG/IGs above:

(((JE drops requests down to this section once request has been scheduled.)))

  • Steve Hughes (from JPL, Information modeling expert and person responsible for the PDS implementation that supports expressing the Information Model in multiple formats including both XML and JSON) has coordinated his schedule/approvals to be available for a presentation on the topic at the May Interop. (Thank you Anne)
  • Extra Edu session .... (Henrik)
  • DM splinter ... (Laurent)
  • Friday morning break???? (Marco->Janet)
  • Email from Mario Juric - HIPs, snippet of email below (needs to be contacted, pass on to WG)
    • Over the past year, we've been working with colleagues at Rubin to explore schemes for bulk delivery (download) of large datasets. ... The practical problem we're trying to solve is how to make large (10TB+) catalogs available for bulk download, but in a way that will enable downloads of subset as well as on-line large-scale analytics (including distributed joins and cross-matching). We realized this is possible by a relatively simple extensions of HiPS to parquet-based catalog datasets. ...
  • DCP request for extra slot (Gilles)
  • ~~
  • Semantics would like to have a regular working session; there are no particular constraints as regards time.
  • Theory IG would like to have a regular working session Simon; not on the first day please; other days and times okay.
  • Ops IG requests two sessions
  • KDIG requests one session
  • SSIG requests one session
  • GWS requests two (better 3) sessions. One standard session (auth, vospace, etc). One session dedicated to code and HW in the VO, letting projects (e.g. SKA) to introduce their requirements in terms of how to couple data, software, computing respources. How can we profit from the IVOA experience?
  • Registry WG requests one session
  • Registry WG and DCP IG request one joint Registry+DCP session
  • Apps requests 2 sessions
  • EduIG requests 1 session
  • DAL requests two sessions
  • RIG requests 1 session, in the afternoon (due to ML chairing remotely from the US)
  • DM 2 sessions 1) MIVOT ecosystem 2) other talks including this of Steve Hughes
