Abstract: The Strasbourg Astronomical Data Centre (CDS) develops the reference astronomy services: SIMBAD - the database for the identification and bibliography of astronomical objects (outside the solar system); VizieR - a catalogue service for large sky surveys, catalogues and associated data published in astronomy journals; Aladin - the interactive sky atlas provides an interactive portal for access to collections of images and data available in the Virtual Observatory; The CDS fast cross-matching service provides capabilities for positional cross-matching of very large catalogues, and the CDS portal provides a single entry point to the services. The CDS booth at the ADASS conference provides demonstrations of these services and is intended to foster collaborations and exchange of information. This article describes some of the recent highlights of CDS activities.
