IVOA Proposed Recommendation 11 May 2011

Interest/Working Group:
IVOA Grid and Web Services Working Group
Matthew Graham, Guy Rixon


This document describes the minimum interface that a (SOAP- or REST-based) web service requires to participate in the IVOA. Note that this is not required of standard VO services developed prior to this specification, although uptake is strongly encouraged on any subsequent revision. All new standard VO services, however, must feature a VOSI-compliant interface.
