Observing the Synthetic Universe: Theoretical Astrophysics and The Virtual Observatory

21:00 Tue 28 Jan to 08:00 Thu 30 Jan 2003

University of Sydney


There is growing international and local interest in establishment of Virtual Observatories, where a wealth of astronomical information available with a few keystrokes. The Universities of Melbourne and Sydney, the ATNF & the AAO have already received ARC LIEF funding to investigate Australia's potential role in the international Virtual Observatory projects. But Virtual Observatories can be much more than giant databases of observational data. Organised by the Australian National Institute of Theoretical Astrophysics (ANITA), the goal of this workshop is to establish the role theoretical astrophysics will have in Virtual Observatories.
