The aim of the symposium is to promote the scientific exploitation of the ISO Data Archive.
It will in particular:
Offer the opportunity to present new results obtained with ISO.
The new view on the cold universe offered by ISO will be discussed by
several review talks as well as selected contributed talks and posters.
Special emphasis will be given to the generation of catalogs, to projects
involving large data sets and/or systematic data reduction, or any project
making use of the data with a different purpose than that planned in the
Be a platform to expose new ideas for such projects and to establish new
collaborations by allowing ample time for discussions.
Encourage new projects by providing overviews of the scientific content
of the archive, giving rise to useful inventories.
Advertise the relevance of the ISO Data Archive for the use of future
infrared science facilities (SIRTF, ASTRO-F, SOFIA, Herschel...) and solicit
suggestions to make the archive more useful for those missions.
Facilitate the use of the archive by offering information on the different
tools available to work with ISO data and by addressing the relationship of
the archive to other data bases and virtual observatories.
