data management and community tools.
At these meetings we also encourage the presentation of new relevant developments by academic and
research institutes aimed at facilitating a wide range of observatory operations and activities.
Considering the developments of the European Integrated Data Archive (EIDA;
within ORFEUS, the fast growing of the Strong Motion community (
the on-going challenging IT developments and other forthcoming activities in European seismology, the
2015 Observatory Coordination meeting will focus on the following topics:
- (Meta)data management and EIDA
