SFM at the ADASS Conference in Trieste, Italy


The annual Astronomical Data Analysis Software and Systems (ADASS) conference provides a forum for scientists and programmers concerned with algorithms, software and software systems employed in the acquisitions, reduction, analysis and dissemination of astronomical data.

The 2016 ADASS conference is held 16-20 October at the Stazione Marittima Conference Centre, Trieste, Italy, at the Trieste Astronomical Observatory (OATs) of the Italian national Institute of Astrophysics (INAF).

The conference website provides further information, including the full programme.

Quasar Science Resources introduces in its poster contribution the virtual infrastructure proposed for the StarFormMapper (SFM) H2020 project in which Quasar participates. The goal of the StarFormMapper (SFM) project (http://www.sfm.leeds.ac.uk/) is the study of galaxy evolution through the mechanisms that underlie massive star and star cluster formation. The project combines data from two of ESA’s major space missions, Gaia (http://sci.esa.int/gaia/) and Herschel (http://sci.esa.int/herschel/), together with data from ground based facilities.

In this work Quasar describe the proposed hardware and software architecture, what we have called the Dynamic Evolution Added Value Interface (DEAVI), a Virtual Infrastructure to take care of the development and production environment for the project based on Linux desktops and servers.

The full contribution will be published by the Astronomical Society of the Pacific (ASP) as part of their Conference Series. For now, you can download an A4 pdf version of the poster by clicking on the image below.
