  1. THE US NATIONAL VIRTUAL OBSERVATORY National Virtual Observatory Summer School: Welcome Tom McGlynn NASA/GSFC NVO Summer School

  2. Outline • Purpose of the NVO and Summer School • How to get information • Faculty and Staff • Students • Facilities and logistics • Schedule • Student exercises and projects • NVO small grants program (Hanisch) • Non-academic activities NVO Summer School

  3. Threads of the the VO Fabric Multiwavelength astrophysics NGC3104 Archival Research Moore’s Law Digital detectors The Internet Data Standards Survey astronomy Temporal astronomy NVO Summer School

  4. What is the Virtual Observatory All astronomy data and knowledge is available to all astronomers. Removing barriers to doing science: • Physical. Moore’s Law • Semantic. NVO team and IVOA partners • Cultural. NVO Summer School

  5. International Virtual Observatory Alliance US National Virtual Observatory team currently in 4th year of five year NSF grant. NVO Summer School

  6. Purpose of the Summer School Encourage and enable science research using the Virtual Observatory • Teach VO technologies • Present research that uses the VO. • Support student exercises and projects NVO Summer School

  7. Faculty and Staff Introductions • Tom McGlynn, NASA GSFC • Dave De Young, NOAO • Mike Fitzpatrick, NOAO • Matthew Graham, Caltech • Gretchen Greene, STScI • Bob Hanisch, STScI • Simon Krughoff, University of Pittsburgh • Shui Kwok, Keck Observatory • Chris Miller, NOAO • Maria Nieto-Santisteban, JHU • Ray Plante, NCSA, University of Illinois • Doug Tody, NRAO • Roy Williams, CalTech • Sarah Emery Bunn, CalTech • Sadie Lingham, JHU NVO Summer School

  9. How to get and give information • Summer School Web Site • • Permanent record of summer school • Summer School Twiki • • This is active site. You can modify it. • Twiki demo. • Faculty and staff • Feedback sessions NVO Summer School

  10. Logistics • Internet and electrical connectivity • Meals • Dinner Reservations • Transport • Who to see if there are problems NVO Summer School

  11. Schedule • See • Three phases: • “Preschool”: technologies used in VO • “College”: how to use the VO • “Graduate School”: student projects NVO Summer School

  12. Preschool (Wednesday-Thursday) • Introductions • Software setup • Basic XML and SQL • More advanced protocols: SOAP, security, the Grid. • Languages: VO is language independent NVO Summer School

  13. College (Friday-Monday) • Overviews of VO applications and protocols. • Building basic VO clients Querying and correlating tables in the VO. • Building VO Services • Building more complex VO clients or services. • VO registries • Science talks • Student exercises NVO Summer School

  14. Graduate School: Tuesday-Thursday • Student projects • Student Presentations • Science talks • Awards and closing NVO Summer School

  15. Science Talks Where the VO has been and is being used for in current astronomical research. Galaxies and clusters (theme) Correlations of large catalogs Object classification Grid analysis of large datasets Data quality in the VO NVO Summer School

  16. Projects • Scope • Do research using the VO • Build a new VO service or client • Develop new VO protocol • … • See for ideas • Organization • Self chosen, student-led teams • All students strongly encouraged to participate • Use the Twiki! • Presentations and prizes • NVO Grants Program (Hanisch) NVO Summer School

  17. Social • Social calendar • Family • Sunday activities • School dinner • Meals in Aspen • Evening get-togethers NVO Summer School
