The Astronomical Virtual Observatory - Building Operational Services on Pervasive Grids: Standards in Use (2/4)
Nicholas A Walton (co-chair Astro-RG), Reagan Moore (co-Chair PE-RG), Erwin Laure (co-chair GIN-CG)
Building upon the first joint International Virtual Astronomy Alliance (IVOA - see http://www.ivoa.net)/ Global Grid Forum (GGF) workshop which was held May 2006 at GGF17 in Tokyo, this workshop will critically assess how Virtual Observatory services in Astronomy are interfacing with, and deployed upon, distributed computing infrastructures on a number of scales, ranging from large scale grids such as TeraGrid, to smaller scale Campus Grids, and locally provided astronomy specific compute infrastructure.
The OGF Astronomy Applications Research Group has analysed key focus areas where utilisation of OGF provided standards are important to the successful deployment of applications and services for the astronomy domain.
This workshop brings together technical and operational leaders and experts from the astronomy domain, and those developing the key standards (e.g. in data, applications, security) such that experience of use in practise can reconciled with developments in those standard areas. The feedback from this exemplar science domain will highlight the opportunities and difficulties presented by take up of OGF standard compliant implementations.
Additionally, this workshop brings together early adopters of Grid technology from astronomic science and prospective users of the community to let them exchange the state of the art in scientific Grid Computing and discuss requirements of Grid middleware for future astronomic scenarios such as the integration of robotic telescopes.
The full agenda and details for the workshop is available on the IVOA site at http://www.ivoa.net/twiki/bin/view/IVOA/GgfIvoaMay07WorkShop
