Multimessenger Astronomy with ObsTAP and pyVO

The Tutorial will have two parts: the first part will be dedicated to data discovery with "ObsTAP", a VO standard that was developed for this exact use case. Participants will get a little insight of how the standard works, and how it can be used from within software like TOPCAT, Splat-VO or Aladin.

The second part of the tutorial will focus on how to use ObsTAP within python scripts with the help of the astropy affiliated package pyVO. We will define criteria, and let the script "find" feasable data services, and query those.

We will use a multi messenger use case to emphasize the benefits of the used standards and tools.
