Another day of VOEvent

The pre-meeting gathering for coffee turned into an extended and somewhat confused discussion about XML and where the angle brackets should go, presumably we had too much time to think about such things last night.

After Roy herded us back into a slightly more controlled state we sat down to listened to Szabolcs Márka talking about LIGO and gravitational wave detectors as consumers and producers of astronomical events.


LIGO and the GCN

Matthew Graham then talked about intricacies of XML schemas and the complexities of the VO Registry.

Following Matthew's talk we descended into the heated discussion about the balance between simplicity and complexity in the XML, and the plans for the forthcoming Kyoto meeting, fortunately coffee eventually interrupted things...

Update: More talks after coffee...
