Requirements for UV observatories”, Kluwer-Springer, in press. Joint Discussion during the IAU GA on the impact of stellar (UV) astronomy on cosmological studies and on the understanding of how life-sustainable systems are generated. Conference in “El Escorial”, May 2007 to analyze the instrumentation required to achieve some fundamental goals of modern astronomy. NUVA FP7 objectives:  NUVA FP7 objectives Identification of the key technologies for future UV instrumentation. Identification of key VO compliant tools for the analysis and interpretation of UV data in connection with other spectral domains. Keeping the UV community connected Europe-wide until the end of the HST mission and in the advent of WSO/UV mission. NUVA FP7 deliverables:  NUVA FP7 deliverables Assessment study of the relevant new technologies (gratings, narrow band filters, high sensitivity spectral-imaging techniques, integral field spectroscopy, spectropolarimetry). VO tools to analyze UV data and integrate them within the high redshift UV Universe targeted by the 10-m and ELT telescopes (e.g. characteristic structure scales in matter beams from z=0 to z=6-9).

(Future Astronomical Software Environment) FP6 progress:  FASE. (Future Astronomical Software Environment) FP6 progress Monthly phone meetings, Semi-annual face-to-face meetings, Documentation and minutes on Twiki Web site Three main deliverables: High-level requirements. ( Draft version available fall 2005, Internal, written review spring 2006, Final version fall 2006 after community wide review) Achitectural concept document ( Draft available spring 2005, Review expected late 2006 with final version early 2007) Interface specifications (Draft version in spring 2007 based on proto-type work, Final version after review during fall 2007) Documents will be delivered by end 2007 FASE: FP7 objectives:  FASE: FP7 objectives Next natural step is a basic implementation of FP6 derived specifications providing: Single-user, desk-top version with scalability Command line execution of application tasks Links to Python scripting language Easy interface to applications written in C and Fortran Access to legacy applications from IRAF, MIDAS, ... Deliverables for a FP7 activity would be: Detailed design and specifications for environment User level documentation and tutorials Basic implementation of environment as source code with installation procedures for Linux systems FASE: FP7 Resources.:  FASE: FP7 Resources. Implementation requires actual man-power! Estimate of resources (with high uncertainties): 20-40 FTE for software development assuming Major parts of central framework can be obtained from other open source projects (e.g. OpenRTE). This will be checked by proto-types forseen for fall 2006 and winter 2007. Environment is made available for a Linux platform only 20-50% adminstrative software overhead depending on how distributed the developments will be. 10-20 person scientific oversight committee With 50% FP7 funding, this suggests at least 1-2 Meuro Potential participants ESO plus Institutes in Germany, Italy, Netherlands UK, Spain, Finland, and France (plus USA) Interferometry:  Interferometry Included in Interferometry presentation. Natural Continuation of FP6 work Networking component 575 KEuro Telescope Directors Forum. FP6 Progress:  Telescope Directors Forum. FP6 Progress Annual Directors Meetings Oversight of Access programme First steps to Common proposal Software Requirements matrix for new members Promotion of Access programme in CEE Successful Access Office at IAC TDF. FP7 Plans:  TDF. FP7 Plans Objectives Continue Annual Directors Meetings and Oversight of Access programme More efforts at integration and rationalisation in conjunction with Access programme Resources about the same as FP6 + inflation (~200 Keuro) + cost of access office if required. Lead agency and budget holders TBD ‘Research Enhancement’. FP6 Progress:  ‘Research Enhancement’. FP6 Progress Successfull submission of Marie-Curie program (Neon schools: 6 planned 2005-8) Set-up of WG to identify the needs Preliminary plans for specialised training workshops in « new observing techniques » (second half of FP6) Enhancement:  Enhancement FP7 Objectives: Develop the programme further, with support to observing schools of various types More emphasis on life-long training (workshops) Better use of archives (demos…) Organise some events in the East of Europe. FP7 Resources Lead Agency IAP Similar to FP6 plus inflation. ~150Keuro New Outreach Network:  New Outreach Network Objectives Promote role of OPTICON in strengthening European Astronomy. Form a network of outreach professionals to share ideas, tools, contacts, resources Develop a critical mass of media contacts across EU so a ‘single button press’ reaches all European media New Outreach Network:  New Outreach Network Deliverables Presence at IAU, JENAM etc backed up by suitable hardcopy (brochures, DVDs). EU wide workshops of Outreach professionals Fire and forget PR ‘cluster munition’ New Outreach Network:  New Outreach Network Resources 1-2 FTE/year distributed across several sites as ‘part-people’ 50Keuro/year consumables/travel Total ~0.5-1 MEuro Lead Participants; Project Office (WP1) UKATC (WP2), IAC (WP3) Second Generation Proposal and Observing Preparation tools:  Second Generation Proposal and Observing Preparation tools Abstract: Exploit power of new Web technologies Standardise European (and World?) pre-observation data models Build on “Northstar” proposal tool to spread through Opticon and Radionet partners. Bring review/referee process into the web-based workflow Explore possibilities of standards for Observing Preparation. Proposer: UKATC Partners: ASTRON + TDF USA: NRAO + ? Funding: € 500000 over 5 years (want enough effort to do something, not just talk about doing something) In very early stages – discussions with ASTRON next month.
