Abstract
VOEvent is the emerging virtual observatory standard for representing and reporting celestial transient events. Detailed semantics and short latency are required to support immediate, often robotic, follow-up observations. A flexible schema supports a wide selection of instrumentation and observing scenarios. We discuss the use of VOEvent to motivate time domain astronomy in the NOAO Science Archive.
