报告题目:The VO And Why It Matters To You

摘    要:In the most technical words, the Virtual Observatory (VO) is an effort to enable uniform and efficient access to astronomical data. With more glitz, it is like the Web and Google, only for data.  In this talk the speaker will demonstrate that what sounds tedious and boring in reality is exciting and useful to your research.  Thus, after some motivation filling in the gaps in the above definitions, The speaker will go on describing some of the key VO technologies and the ways to use them. The speaker will close pointing out why we should also publish to the VO, and how to go about this.

报 告 人:Prof. Markus Demleitner(Heidelberg University, 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.
