报告题目:A Closer Look at the VO

摘要:While the main goal of the Virtual Observatory (VO) is to be invisible, — all its users should notice is seamless data discovery and access –, a deeper understanding of its inner workings enables interesting science opportunities. In this talk the speaker will explain the architecture of the VO, what standards there are and how they are intended to work together. In order to demonstrate the practical consequences these have, The speaker will offer a brief look at the server package DaCHS and how actual science software communicates with it. Finally, the speaker will point out some ways to get involved.

报 告 人:Prof.Markus Demleitner(HeidelbergUniversity,Germany)

报告人简介:Markus Demleitner studied physics, math and astronomy at the universities of Erlangen/Nürnberg and Heidelberg, Germany. He did his PhD in astronomy at Heidelberg University in 2000, working out analytic solutions for certain classes of galactic disks. Even before that, he had joined the staff of the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory (Cambridge, MA) in 1999, to help ADS in, among other things, abstract and reference extraction and organising the article holdings. In 2001, he returned to Heidelberg, accepting a teaching post in computational linguistics before returning to astronomy in 2007. He has been contributing to the Virtual Observatory effort ever since, primarily through developing the data center software DaCHS. This entails intense activities in several working groups of the IVOA; right now, Markus is chair of the Registry working group.
