VAO Working with LSST, SDSC

The VAO recently signed Letters of Cooperation with the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope and the San Diego Supercomputer Center at the University of California, San Diego, aimed at fostering the use of VO tools and services and helping to make software development more efficient and less expensive through re-use of standard libraries.  The LSST agreement focuses on the standards and mechanisms for distributing transient event notices (VOEvents) and accessing the LSST databases and images with VO-compliant interfaces.  The SDSC agreement aims to improve VO-based access to theoretical simulations and share expertise in management of large data collections, including digital libraries.  Other organizations and projects interested in cooperating with the VAO are encouraged to contact us!
