Abstract: We describe work investigating how astronomical simulation data can be effectively incorporated into the Virtual Observatory. We focus specifically on determining whether the data query, access and retrieval standards being developed by the International Virtual Observatory Alliance for observational data can be similarly applied to, and fully support, the requirements of data extracted from astrophysical simulations. We present a data model for Simulation data and identify the extensions required to the Universal Content Descriptor astronomy metadata vocabulary to encompass simulation specific concepts and quantities. We also describe initial work on a new standard protocol to enable uniform access to simulation datasets.
