IVOA Small Projects Meeting 2003

26-28 November 2003: Beijing, China

Meeting Outline

There have been 13 member organizations in International Virtual Observatory Alliance (IVOA). Several big projects, such as AstroGrid, Euro-VO and US-VO, have obvious advantages on funding, technology and astronomical resources. At present, they mainly focus on definition of VO related standards and development of VO infrastructure. Different from those big projects, there are more small projects, such as China-VO, KVO, RVO, and etc. Funding and resources are quite limited for these projects. How can small VO projects best contribute to the global VO efforts? What are the suitable R&D focuses for them?
