Purpose & Goals

The Research and Scientific Support Department of the European Space Agency is organizing an international workshop at the European Space Astronomy Centre (ESAC) in the framework of the EURO-VO Data Centre Alliance and Facility Centre. The main goal of the workshop is to outline needs and challenges that astronomical spectroscopy will be facing in the coming years, and to identify how the unique capabilities intrinsic to the Virtual Observatory concept can meet them. To achieve this goal, the workshop will bring together experts in different branches of astronomical spectroscopy and scientists and engineers active in the VO international endeavor.

We have identified the following topics for discussion:

  • Spectroscopic surveys: present and future needs, algorithm, tools, and facilities
  • VO standards to access spectroscopic data
  • Spectral visualization and analysis tools in the VO context
  • Interface between spectroscopic data, laboratory databases, and theoretical models
  • Photometry in the VO: a common approach to spectroscopy?
In order to ensure an intense debate and a high level of interaction, a substantial fraction of the Workshop will be dedicated to round-table discussions focused on each of the above topics.
A short number of invited and contributed presentations will help provide the Workshop participants with the current scientific and technological context.
