This document describes the list of controlled terms used to build the Unified Content Descriptors, Version 1+ (UCD1+). The document describing the UCD1+ can be found at the URL: http://www.ivoa.net/Documents/latest/UCD.html. This document reviews the structure of the UCD1+ and presents the current vocabulary. 
Enabling scientific data on the Web
TLDR
The Partition Annotate Name (PAN) methodology is introduced, which relies upon embracing the core architectural principles of the Web: name things with URIs; process common data formats; use common rules under a shared contract between publisher, developer, and consumer.

Italian center for astronomical archives publishing solution: modular and distributed
TLDR
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.
ESO science data product standard for 1D spectral products
TLDR
The ESO Phase 3 process allows the upload, validation, storage, and publication of reduced data through the ESO Science Archive Facility, and this contribution describes theESO data standard for 1d-spectra and its adoption by the reduction pipelines of selected instrument modes for in-house generation of reduced spectra.
The VO-Dance web application at the IA2 data center
TLDR
The VO-Dance tool is described, that IA2 started developing to address VO resources publishing in a dynamical way from already existent database tables or views, that consists in a Java web application that stores internally the services' metadata and information, exposes restful endpoints to accept VO queries for these services and dynamically translates calls to these endpoints coherent with the published table or view.
TAPAS, a VO archive at the IRAM 30-m telescope
TLDR
The TAPAS archive at the IRAM 30-m telescope is aimed to provide public access to the headers describing the observations performed with the telescope, according to a defined data policy, making as well the technical data available to the IRam staff members.

Abstract The origins of the Italian contribution to the international Virtual Observatory (VO) were mainly tied to the definition and implementation of a Data Grid using Grid standards. From there
Data as a Research Infrastructure - CDS, the Virtual Observatory, Astronomy, and beyond
The situation of data sharing in astronomy is positioned in the current general context of a political push towards, and rapid development of, scientific data sharing. Data is already one of the
Workflows for Heliophysics
TLDR
This paper describes how the workflows have been integrated into the existing practices of the communities involved in Heliophysics by developing a web portal which can hide the technical details from the users, who can concentrate on the data from their scientific point of view rather than on the methods used to integrate and process the data.

Resource Metadata for the Virtual Observatory
TLDR
A system for metadata management based on a hierarchy of descriptive schemas is proposed, sufficient primarily to note the existence of a resource and to describe who is responsible for it.
