AstroGrid VOEvent Hands-On Session

The aim of this hands-on session is to show how to publish transient event data using the established VOEvent V1.11 standard which defines the content and meaning of a standard information packet for representing, transmitting, publishing and archiving the discovery of a transient celestial event. This session will be led by Alasdair Allan (eStar/Exeter) and will also illustrate the integration of Transient Event Data using the developing AstroGrid Simple Time Access Protocol (STAP). Examples of current event data available through the VO will be shown but participants are also encouraged to try publishing their own event data. Finally since VO publishing of time domain datasets is less mature we will also be gathering requirements of users and therefore you are welcome to bring along a short presentation (e.g. 5-10 mins) of the time domain datasets you would like to publish and any special requirements you think may apply to publishing these datasets.
