E-Science develops and builds tools and infrastructure for the scientific workflow. With current observing and compute facilities the data size and the methods to work on this data is changing. For maximizing the scientific output from these data, interaction of a variety of specialized scientists is required.

E-Science at AIP focuses on the following topics:
- Collaborative Research Environments (e.g. CLUES, MUSE)
- Data Publication (e.g. CosmoSim, RAVE)
- Virtual Observatory (Interfaces for databases)

Additionally, in a hands-on session in the afternoon 13:30 - 15:00, we give a short SQL intorduction, show how to access the RAVE and CosmoSim databases, demonstrate some VO Tools, and how to use the Data Access Service.

If you want to actively participate in the afternoon session, please bring a laptop with Topcat and Aladin installed. (If you need help with this, please contact us beforehand. We won't have time to fix installations during the session.)

You can download the talk (pdf, 17 MB) and the tutorials (pdf, 2.5 MB).
