2010 EuroVO-AIDA VO Schools EuroVO The EURO-VO project, in the framework of the EURO-VO Astronomical Infrastructure for Data Access (AIDA), ran two 'VO Schools' in April 2009 and January 2010. The goals of these schools are to expose European astronomers to the variety of VO tools and services available today so that they can use them efficiently for their own research. The training materials developed for the schools consist of step-by-step tutorials based on science cases covering stellar and extragalactic astronomy. Link
2009 September VO Day at Bordeaux Astrophysics Laboratory (Journée OV au LAB), Bordeaux, France French VO/CDS The VO Day is aimed at local scientists, with a short presentation of the VO and of some VO tools, and tutorials aimed at local scientific topics, including several "hands-on" topics mostly adapted from the Euro-VO ones (programme, presentations and tutorials in French). Link
2008 June How to publish data in the VO, ESO, Garching, Germany Euro-VO Data Centre Alliance and Facility Centre The workshop is particularly targetted at participants from astronomical data centres and larger projects in order to provide the knowledge and experience to enable them to publish a range of datasets to the Virtual Observatory. Link for presentations. Link
2008 January EuroVO-DCA Info Workshop. Sofia (Bulgaria) The EURO-VO Data Centre Alliance project in collaboration with the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences The workshop was aimed at providing support to Data Centers from countries not participating in the EuroVO-DCA project to acquire the knowledge and experience necessary to allow them to become "publishers" in the VO. Data Centre representatives from Bulgaria, Hungary, Serbia and Romania attended the meeting. Link
2007 October Astronomy With Virtual Observatories (IUCAA, Pune, India) VO India, with many presenters from IVOA member projects The workshop provided an overview of important technical aspects of the Virtual Observatory, various tools and services developed in the VO framework, large data archives, and specific case studies that highlight the use of VO resources and tools to obtain new scientific results. Link For Presentations Link
2007 September e-Science 101, Caltech George Djorgovski, Roy Williams, Matthew Graham, et al. The goal of this class is to introduce students to a number of increasingly important tools and concepts in computationally enabled/intensive science and engineering. This includes subjects such as: databases, data mining, advanced visualization, web services, XML and other useful languages, computational semantics, design and implementation of advanced scientific software systems, grid computing, numerical and math libraries, advanced networking, principles and practice of massively parallel computing, etc. Link
