WP3 Coordinating technical activities and defining the technical needs to maintain the VO framework

WP lead: Keith Noddle (UEDIN)

WP Objectives

This Work Package coordinates the technical activities of the European VObs teams and evaluates the activities and funding required to maintain the VObs technical framework (interoperability standards and VObs tools and portals) on the medium term.

Description of Work

This Work Package is managed by the WP lead, UEDIN, assisted by the Technical Working Group. Task 3.4 is led by INAF. There are several aspects in this activity: analysing requirements gathered from WP2 in terms of technological development, coordinating and analysing the expertise and activities of the European VObs teams and their role in the international landscape, and the evolution of the International Virtual Observatory Alliance.

  • Task 3.1: Analysis of requirements from the user and provider communities.
  • Task 3.2: Coordination of the European VObs teams and analysis of their expertise and activities. This task has two aspects:
    • Task 3.2.1 will organise “Technology Forums” to gather the European VObs teams which participate in the development of the European VObs. These forums aim at exchanging information on and coordinating the European technical VObs activities, discussing the activities relevant to the development of IVOA standards and preparing the IVOA Interoperability meetings by coordinating if possible a common European strategy. Three “Euro-VO Technology Forums” will be organised during the project.
    • Task 3.2.2 will analyse the domains of expertise and activities of the European VObs teams, to determine the long term needs.
  • Task 3.3: Assessment of the evolution of the IVOA.
  • Task 3.4: Liaison with the grid and cloud (INAF). This task will analyse the areas of commonality and complementarity between the VObs and the distributed computing infrastructures (DCIs), i.e. the international grid and cloud initiatives, and particularly EGI and the OGF.
