AVO Work Area 2 consists of deployment and demonstration of an interoperability prototype. Access to archives of all the partners (ESO, ESA, AstroGrid, Terapix, Jodrell Bank) is implemented via the CDS data federation and integration tools: VizieR and Aladin. The prototype is available for science usage and more functionalities, based in particular on the usage of Uniform Content Descriptors (UCDs) for data mining, will be developed. Case by case discussion with data providers will help to establish a set of practical recommendations for interoperability. Science requirements and new technologies studied by the other AVO work Areas will also be tested. Discussions on standards are ongoing among all VO projects.
