Third Euro-VO Technology Forum
Important: The dates of this meeting have been changed. It now ends on Wednesday 18th.
Strasbourg, 16-18 March 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 Strasbourg May IVOA Interoperability meeting.
Dates and general information
The DS Planning meetings will be held at the Strasbourg Astronomical Observatory, Strasbourg, France, 16th-19th March 2009
Strike warning on March 19th : at present (February 24th) it is expected that many sectors will be hit. It has therefore been decided to reduce the duration of the meeting by one day (see announcement above)
The observatory is located in the Downtown campus (Esplanade). Please refer to directions on how to get there
. The "Observatoire" tram station (line C towards Esplanade) is located just in front of the observatory.
Registration Deadline: 6th March 2009
There will be no formal workshop; dinner, but we will make efforts to co-ordinate a gathering if that is the general preference.
