The ESCAPE WP4 Technology Forum 2 is an online event that aims to update the astronomy and particle physics communities on the progress of the ESCAPE Connecting ESFRI projects to EOSC through VO framework (CEVO) tasks:

  • Task 4.1 - Integration of astronomy VO data and services into the EOSC
  • Task 4.2 – Implementation of FAIR principles for ESFRI data through the Virtual Observatory
  • Task 4.3 – Adding value to trusted content in astronomy archives
  • Prepare the ESCAPE input for the May 2021 IVOA Interoperability meeting
  • Strengthen the cross-WP activities with WP3, WP5 and WP2
  • Planning for the WP4 activities in the 2nd part of the ESCAPE project
  • Work together on practicial implementations!

Location and Schedule

Due to the on-going covid-19 pandemic, this Technology Forum will be held as an on-line event.
The presentation sessions are organised in the mornings and hack-a-thon interactions in the afternoons, with the final conlcuding session on Thursday afternoon.
