• Trigger advanced usage of VO capabilities• Obtain a set of well-documented science cases• Gather feedback about the needs of the science

community• Adaptation of VO tools to these needs

In a nutshell: interaction with European astronomers in the area of “science with the VO”

• The Euro-VO SAC is a body of 17 “external” astronomers who provide science input to the project (see Francoise Genova’s talk and http://www.euro-vo.org/pub/fc/sac.html)• The SAC met twice in the reporting period: in March (Cambridge, IoA) and December (Strasbourg, CDS)• SAC members were briefed on Euro-VO activities and provided input on Euro-VO Workshops, Research Initiative, etc.• Most SAC members to be renewed in the next couple of months

• Aim: scientific and technical support to teams interested in carrying out astronomical projects utilising VO tools • Announced April 16, deadline June 15 2008• SAC provided input on its content in its March meeting• Publicized through:

Euro-VO mailing list European Astronomical Society newsletter Newsletters of various national astronomical societies

• Main contact person (EH) plus national contact points

• Seven proposals received, meeting with PIs at ESO on Sep. 5 to assess their needs via direct interaction• Three projects supported for 1 yr (until Sep. 15, 2009); scientific ranking provided by SAC:

Is a galaxy’s disk scale-length universal? (PI Fathi [Sweden]; CDS/Astrogrid) Spectral energy distributions of 2XMM-selected AGN (PI Gil-Merino [Spain]; SVO) AGN feedback and quenching of star formation: a multiwavelength approach (PI Lobo [Portugal]; ESO)

• Second call due by June

WP4 - VO-enabled services to the science community Euro-VO AIDA – First periodic review – 24 April 2009

• Goals Identify needs and challenges multi-wavelength astronomy will be facing in the coming

years Identify how the VO can meet them Bring together experts in multi-wavelength astronomy and VO scientists and engineers Overall rationale: scientific needs to drive the technological development; vital to get

input from the astronomical community

• Workshop announcement through Euro-VO mailing list Newsletters of various national astronomical societies Euro-VO SAC AIDA Board

• All deliverables done on-time and very successfully• No problems foreseen in completing WP4 work as planned• Announcement of Opportunity, Workshops, and Schools have shown how vital it is to interact with the European astronomical community• FP7 support has proven to be invaluable in organizing all of the above activities• Main message: the European astronomical community (especially the young one) is eager to learn about the Virtual Observatory and use it for its science activities
