The internal training of China-VO group has completed successfully on Mar 18, 2005 in the National Astronomical Observatory. All the postgraduates in the China-VO group attended the study. The study has been divided into three parts. First of all, we studied some IVOA standards and protocols, therefore we have got full understanding of the development blueprint of the IVOA. After that we tested the prototype of Astrogrid and some demos of AVO. Unfortunately, the new release of astrogrid will not be available until Mar 31, 2005, so several services are temporarily unavailable. Thirdly, we concentrated on the installation of GT4 and how to use WSRF to write service.
All attendees said they learned a lot from this concentrated study. They hope China-VO group will arrange more in the future.
Dr. Cui chenzhou, the leader of China-VO group, said it is likely that a further study of IVOA will be convened soon.
