Abstract: Iris is a tool developed by the Virtual Astronomical Observatory (VAO) for building and analyzing Spectral Energy Distributions (SEDs). Iris was designed to be extensible, so that new components and models can be developed by third parties and then included at runtime. Iris can be extended in different ways: new file readers allow users to integrate data in custom formats into Iris SEDs; new models can be fitted to the data, in the form of template libraries for template fitting, data tables, and arbitrary Python functions. The interoperability-centered design of Iris and the Virtual Observatory standards and protocols can enable new science functionalities involving SED data.
