DADI Meeting on Gravitational Waves

Two-day informal meeting where VO developers can understand the issues and needs of GW people and where GW people can learn about the VO and get technical support for on-going or future development of VO tools.

(Top level DADI page: WP4: Data Access, Discovery and Interoperability (DADI))


31 May-1 June 2016


Observatoire de Strasbourg, 11 rue de l'Université, Strasbourg, France

Main Topics

  • VOevent/alert and GW
  • Tools to help defining follow-up strategy:
    • Skymap visualization and tiling
    • Galaxy catalogs and usage for prioritization
  • Tutorial on the scientifc usage of the VO



The meeting will begin at 9:00 on 31 May 2016 and likely finish in the afternoon on 1 June 2016. The initial programme was purely indicative and evolved as the meeting progressed. The programme shown below is the final one.
