VSO BoF session at Albuquerque AAS/SPD meeting

Monday, 3 June, 5:30-7:00pm, San Miguel room

In Europe and the US, there are a number of projects planned or underway that will pave the way towards a virtual solar observatory. In such a system, solar observations from many sources will appear to the user as a single vitual archive, eventually allowing complex data comparisons. This session will reveal the details and objectives of these projects and how they relate to each other, and will allow the projects to exchange ideas with each other and with the prospective user base (the audience). All interested parties are welcome.

Currently scheduled speakers (< 5 minutes each):

  • Joe Gurman / NASA Goddard (welcome; VSO purpose)
  • Rob Bentley / UCL-MSSL (EGSO)
  • Terry Kucera / NASA Goddard (LWS data system status)
  • VSO design study
    • Rick Bogart / Stanford U.
    • Frank Hill
    • Piet Martens / Montana State U.
  • open discussion

Organized by: Bob Bentley and Joe Gurman
