The VAO at the NExScI Sagan Workshop

2012 Sagan Exoplanet Summer Workshop - Working with Exoplanet Light Curves

The VAO supported the NASA Exoplanet Science Institute’s (NExScI) annual Sagan Summer Workshop, which this year focused on the analysis of exoplanet light curves.  Hands-on sessions instructing the 160 participants in the use of open source analysis tools were enabled by VAO guidance on the use of Cloud computing resources, and VAO Project Scientist Joseph Lazio gave a presentation about the Virtual Observatory.  See http://nexsci.caltech.edu/workshop/2012/ for more information about the workshop.
