Fourth Euro-VO Technology Forum

Trieste, 22-24 September 2009

The meeting intends to provide joint planning, sharing of best practice, dissemination of results, and technology exchange for all Euro-VO partners. It will also aim at gathering the present status of the work on the standards development in preparation for the Garching November IVOA Interoperability meeting.

Dates and general information

The Planning meetings will be held at Trieste, Italy, 22th-24th September 2009 at the INAF - Astronomical Observatory of Trieste, on the "Villa Bazzoni" (Via Riccardo Bazzoni 2, 34124 Trieste). Please refer to directions on how to get there.

The observatory is located in downtown near the S.Giusto castle. Please refer to directions on how to get there.

Registration Deadline: 12th September 2009

WP5 Event

Would it be interesting to propose Tuesday evening at our observing station on the hills (11km from Trieste) with a real AIDA Use Case live in our Esploracosmo lab? We set up a table Y/N on the web page of the 4th AIDA-VO Technology forum.

Around the observing station there are several places to eat (before the observation session) both in Italy and just across the (virtual smile ) border with Slovenia.

Images of spiral galaxy ngc891 and planetary nebula m57 taken during the WP5 event by Bruno Rino and Alberto Micol.

Workshop Dinner

There will be no formal workshop dinner, but we will make efforts to co-ordinate a gathering if that is the general preference.

Accommodation and Visitor information


Please book your hotel rooms directly. Hotels in the centre of Trieste will be convenient as the Observatory is within walking distance (15-20 min).
