This document describes the Astronomical Data Query Language (ADQL). ADQL has been developed based on SQL92. This document describes the subset of the SQL grammar supported by ADQL. Special restrictions and extensions to SQL92 have been defined in order to support generic and astronomy specific operations. 
Compressed Data Structures for Astronomical Content-Aware Resource Search
An efficient approach that aims at supporting content-based queries on the Chilean Virtual Observatory and shows that using only 15%–25% the space of a table the approach contains the table data and is able to answer queries efficiently in a few milliseconds.
The ESA Gaia Archive: Data Release 1
To enable these capabilities, a TAP+ interface, crossmatch capabilities, full catalogue histograms, serialisation of intermediate results in cloud resources like VOSpace, etc have been implemented for the Gaia DR1, to enable the exploitation of these science resources by the community without the bottlenecks on the connection bandwidth.
Data Mining by Grid Computing in the Search for Extrasolar Planets
Assembly language replaces the bit patterns of the instruction set with mnemonics which are easier for the programmer to read, which corresponds to a single layer of abstraction.
Italian center for astronomical archives publishing solution: modular and distributed
A first administration tool has been developed to ease the build up and maintenance of the TAP SCHEMA component of TAP services including also ObsCore maintenance capability and future work will be devoted at widening the range of VO protocols covered by the set of available modules, improve the configuration management and develop specific purpose modules common to all the service components.
SkyQuery: An Implementation of a Parallel Probabilistic Join Engine for Cross-Identification of Multiple Astronomical Databases
This paper presents a novel system that can cross-identify multiple catalogs on-demand, efficiently and reliably based on a cluster of commodity servers and ordinary relational databases.
AstroDAbis: Annotations and Cross-Matches for Remote Catalogues
In a prototype service enabling astronomers to record annotations and cross-identifications in the AstroDAbis service, annotating objects in other catalogues, two interfaces to the annotations are deployed, namely one astronomy-specific one using the TAP protocol and a second exploiting generic Linked Open Data (LOD) and RDF techniques.
Virtual Observatory Publishing with DaCHS
Abstract The Data Center Helper Suite DaCHS is an integrated publication package for building VO and Web services, supporting the entire workflow from ingestion to data mapping to service definition.
Client interfaces to the Virtual Observatory Registry
Some of the less obvious conventions that emerged in the interaction between providers of registry records and Registry users as well as remaining challenges and current developments are laid out.
Building archives in the virtual observatory era
The motivation for choosing VO technologies for implementing an archive's functionality is examined and several current examples are listed, including from the Hubble Legacy Archive, NASA HEASARC, NOAO, and NRAO.
A global database for optical interferometry
The characteristics and functionalities of the first global optical interferometry archive service, which widely uses Virtual Observatory tools to increase diffusion and operability, are presented.
