Astronomical Spectroscopy and the Virtual Observatory Pedro Osuna Research and Scientific Support Department ESAVO Project European Space Agency
The objectives of the workshop • To gather together scientists from the different branches of the Astronomical Spectroscopy community and get their wishes for a useful Virtual Observatory • To transmit to scientists from the Spectroscopy community what the Virtual Observatory is, how it could help them, and what there is already available • To get inputs from the community to improve current IVOA standards and applications so that the VO starts to be known as a helpful tool in everyday’s work. • Expected deliverables: workshop proceedings and report with inputs from the community to be presented to the IVOA community in next IVOA interop meeting
Topics for discussion • Spectroscopic Surveys: present and future needs, tools, algorithms and facilities • VO Standards to access spectroscopic • Spectral visualisation and analysis tools in the VO context • Interface between spectroscopic data, laboratory databases and theoretical models • Photometry and calibration standards
Format of the Workshop • In order to ensure an intense debate and a high level of interaction, a substantial fraction of the Workshop will be dedicated to round-table discussions focused on each of the above topics. • A short number of invited and contributed presentations will help provide the Workshop participants with the current scientific and technological context. • Morning session: Spectroscopic surveys • 09:00-09:15: P.Osuna, Workshop presentation09:15-09:45: C.-W.
