Event Details

The International Virtual Observatory Alliance (IVOA) Fall 2014 Interoperability Meeting will be held at the Banff Park Lodge from 10-12 October 2014. The meeting is being organised by the Canadian Astronomy Data Centre. The dates and location were chosen to allow participants to also attend the 2014 ADASS Conference in nearby Calgary, Alberta.

The IVOA "Interop" workshops provide a semi-annual venue for discussion and development of virtual observatory standards and VO-based applications, and are open to those with an interest in utilizing the VO infrastructure and tools in support of observatory operations and/or astronomical research.

Meeting Programme

Travel

The nearest international airport is the Calgary International Airport (YYC). Banff is about 150km west of Calgary, so you will need to arrange additional ground transportation.

Shuttle Bus update: We have setup a promotion (20% discount from regular fare) with the airport shuttle company. You can book the shuttle online using IVOA2014 as the promo code during checkout. You can also call 1-800-760-6934 and identify yourself as being with the IVOA2014 group. 

Rental Car: If you plan to spend some extra time and see the sights in Banff National Park, this might be a good choice. The town of Banff is very small and has local bus service so you do not need a car just to get around town.

Accommodation

We have reserved a room block of 70 rooms at the Banff Park Lodge (also the meeting venue). Rooms are available for $139 + tax (single or double occupancy). The room block has been extended to September 5, 2014.

Online booking: Banff Park Lodge (use Group ID 21642 and password 37007230).

Telephone booking: You can also call the hotel (1-800-661-9266) and request the Virtual Observatory Alliance room block and rate. You may need to call for dates outside the meeting (Oct 9-12).
