INAF-OATs, in collaboration with INAF-SI (VObs.it), several INAF sections and italian Universities, is organizing a series of "one-and-a-half-day" workshops, called VO-days, devoted to the scientific application of Virtual Observatory (VO) techniques and tools. The VO-days will be held in different italian institutions (more information at the page: http://wwwas.oats.inaf.it/voday/).

The Napoli VO-day, jointly organized by the local section INAF-OACN and the Department of Physics of the University of Napoli Federico II, will take place on 09-10th February 2010. There is "no hard-coded" deadline, so if you want to partecipate (registration is free!), please send a mail to the members of the LOC.

The list of partecipants, regularly updated, can be found here.
