Abstract: Along with the new generation of instruments in astronomy, initiatives in the VO community have been focusing more and more on theoretical standards. Indeed, a scientific return of large observational facilities will only be possible if the community has access to state of the art simulation codes and simulation results. As a first step, the VO-Theory Interest Group at IVOA has developed a data model (SimDM) that can describe any kind of simulations for diffusion in a VO context. Current developments aim at extending the Theory architecture adding a semantic layer to enhance SimDM as well as a simulation data access layer to easily and universally access theoretical data. All is designed with interoperability in mind.
