Abstract: This paper describes our experience in using XML to aid in collaborative scientific research involving infrared astronomy. We describe our current efforts for SOFIA in developing an XML vocabulary for instrument description, communication and control, pipeline algorithms, metadata, and documentation. Out focus has been infrared astronomy, although most of the techniques employed have much wider applicability.
