VO Community Days

Connect with VO experts and learn how others have used the VO.

During these “VO Days”, aimed at research astronomers, VO experts from the Virtual Astronomical Observatory (VAO) – one of many VO projects worldwide – demonstrate tools and services for data-intensive astronomy in the context of a range of science use cases and tutorials.

The recorded webcast of a recent VO Community Day, held at the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, Maryland, is now available, and includes tutorials on Spectral Analysis and SEDs, Data Discovery, and VO-enabled python tools and libraries.

Other VO Days have been held in:

  • Ann Arbor, Michigan (University of Michigan)
  • Tucson, Arizona (Steward Observatory/ University of Arizona)
  • Austin, Texas (American Astronomical Society 219th Meeting)
  • Los Angeles, California (California Institute of Technology)
  • Boston, Massachusetts (Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics)
